That PetSmart isn't half as bad as some other places to be honest. I have some eared watermoss if you are ever interested.

Best place for plants is: http://greenleafaquariums.com/aquarium-plants.html
I got mine in 24 hours (they are in Gainsville), and shipping is only $8.
The amount of Java Fern, HC, Hairgrass, and Crypts they sent me for $30 was AMAZING!
Don't buy plants from the LFS, I highly recommend GLA.

That is good to know about GLA. Didn't realize they were "local". Since i seem to have bought most of the good plants from Petsmart, my next venture might be an order from GLA. But i'm gonna see if I can at least grow some plants before I spend more money.

Anyone ever get together in Orlando for swaps or anything?

I'd be interested in participating in swaps or something. I'm not in Orlando until the summer though.

I have a couple items (heaters, powerheads) I no longer need that I wouldn't mind trading.

I also have a wet/dry filter that just needs a little work I'm not using.

Which Springs did you find the moss? I had tried Kelly Park in Apopka as someone had mentioned finding moss there. Didn't see any at all.

That is where I got mine.. may have died off or it was a lucky find on my part. It was not a huge patch but I left plenty so it could regenerate for future trips. The last thing I would want to do is strip it clean.

In the area

I'm back in the area in the Conway/Downtown Orlando area. I'm currently distributing a few types of plants and wouldn't mind trading for some diversity. Hoping to get my paws on some killies or shrimp!

I have a colony of red cherries here that I intend to sell from. I am going to stick to local and not ship so.
