Hello osx...

Check out alphaprobreeders

I get all my plants from them.

I have gotten most of mine from pet stores and Live Aquaria. I don't have a paypal yet so I can't use S&S. Live Aquaria is kinda pricey but they give you a lot of plants for your money.

aquariumplants.com has good price but they only shipped overnight.
If they can change their shipping way it would be nice.

Well, since the last few posters did what I did on a Colorado posting, I got a batch from Aquarium plants . com and they were great. I wound up throwing some away because I got so much from them. If you're ever in great falls and do want some hearty plants, I'd be more than happy to entertain for a little while and send you back home with some of my overgrowth.

Post Kalispell Plants!

Not much of a choice in town! The Aquarium Shop gets some plants in, in but they are over priced.

I've always had the best luck with swap and shop! If you need some names of the people I have used just let me know.

Gotta Love Montana!!
