HC in Denver

Look for some HC(dwarf baby tears) for a tank I'm rescaping in he Denver area. I can't seem to find any at any LFS. I travel 4 or 5 days a week for work so I'm not sure I can order online without risking killing them before I plant them. If anyone has any idea where I could find some I would appreciate it.

I've seen them in pots at Fish Den before. Catfish Charlie's might have them too.

Fish Den has them all the time, every time I go there they have a couple pots of HC. If you go there, and they don't them in stock you can always place an order with either mustache Mike, or bald head Mike.

I got some beautiful, healthy HC from csmith here on the forum. I think he's in Denver. He was patient with me, too (I'm a newbie). Look him up?

Thanks for all the thoughts. Fish Den has been out every time I've tried in the last 3 weeks.. when I called yesterday they said to try back Saturday.. but they weren't sure if they would have it then.

Aqua Imports said they would have them May 11th. So maybe I'll just have to be patient. But after a bad accident that did in my fish and cleaning out most of my plants my tank looks really depressing with 2 plants and 1 shrimp.

Alplily.. thanks for the reference I will try and pursue that.
