WTB: Plants/Fish/Shrimp/Snails

What's up everyone. I just got back in the hobby around a month or two ago and I have a Fluval Spec V up and running. I have some plants, but I still want more. Right now I have a tiger nerite and a otocinclus in there.

I am running pressurized CO2 with a 16" Finnex Fugeray. For substrate I have dirt covered with tahitian moon sand. I'm planning on dosing Flourish occasionally and maybe Excel, but that might be too much.

I'm from CNJ, but I'm willing to travel to the city in order to pick up the things I want from you guys.

For plants:
I'm looking for 5-10 stems of two different types of medium light stems. Maybe some kind of Ludwigia and Rotala.
1 Anubias Nana petite plant
a few small stems of HC just to try it out. Maybe like a .5x.5" patch
some stems of HM

For fish:
I'm opened up to nano fish suggestions, but right now I'm looking for 7-8 least killifish or 2 peacock gudgeons

For shrimp:
10 cherry shrimp or some other inexpensive shrimp.

For snails:
1 olive nerite
malaysian trumpet snails

I just blew $255 on textbooks for the semester so I'm trying to save as much money as possible by picking up. If you have some or all of the things I want please let me know! I may even be willing to travel up to Queens.

Not sure how far away it would be for you, but MsJinzd has many small fish. http://msjinkzd.com/stocklist/
She's in York, NJ but also ships.
There are a bunch of stores in NJ that have interesting plants and fish, check out the tri-state list of stores that should be in the first few pgs on this NY sub forum. Tri-State (NY-NJ-CT) LFS [Grading system added] & CO2 directory
Cherry shrimp cam be bought from Win Aquarium (address also in list of stores) (chinatown, ny) for $2 each. They are usually nicely colored red-almost Sakura.

Actually, I can hook you up with red cherry shrimp and malaysian trumpet snails for cheap. Where in NJ are you?
