Thanks Levi, I've stopped by both shops the few times I've been in the area. Win was closed by the time I went there on a weekday; I'll probably only get there for open hours on weekends then. I bought 4 plants for $5 each from Pacific; they tossed in one free when I asked for a discount. So the average was 4 for what I believe are: 2 x Sunset Hygro, Stargrass (it's dying atm), ludwigia repens, and baby tears I think. How are those? They do still have the buy 2, get one free if I remember correctly.
I also stopped by Royal Aqua (one on 8th ave and 65th St). They were selling dwarf hairgrass for 8 bucks and I believe either a rotala indica green or a green hygro for 6 bucks. Is that standard pricing in the city?
