Planted Aquariums Central

Has anyone ordered from Planted Aquariums Central? If so shoot me a pm about your experience since vendor reviews aren't allowed on the forum. I'm thinking of placing an order and would like a little info.

Hi Jeff5614,

They have a nice website. The local Better Business Bureau has nothing on them either Pro or Con.

Typically with a new seller I make a small purchase and see how it goes. That way I minimize the possibility of a major purchase SNAFU.

Planted Aquarium Central (i.e redirect to AZ Gardens) or Planted Aquariums Central. The latter is amazing while the former has an F from the BBB.

I ordered from them with no issues or complaints. The packaging was good. I don't know if it matters but it seems like most of their products came from Florida Aquatic Nurseries. I would buy from them again. What are looking to purchase?

I feel the need for some new ground cover so I'm currently thinking Marsilea hirsuta. I was thinking glosso but marsilea seems to be a bit less maintenance.

I got a large order from them about 3 months ago, when I set up my 55g. Shipping was quick, packing was great, and the plants were beautiful. I will definitely be ordering from them again.
