Good forum though.
9 Neons too, for now(had ten, but everyone knows how that goes). Want my next addition, after plants, to be Otos and Corys, and finally more Neons and possibly some other small Tetras.

Here is it about a year later. I was busy and began to neglect it.

|deaztrailnutz||I am new to the forum. I live in Tuscaloosa and work in Birmingham. I have a 55 gallon tank with about 25 cory cats (I started with 2), 2 plecos and 5 amazon swords which I have had for about 5 years. I also have a 56 gallon column tank which I am hoping to start adding plants to in the coming weeks.|

|sourgrl||I've got java moss in a couple tanks, no equipment. The moss and the tank inhabitents (blue velvets & ghost shrimp) are doing really well. I got mine through aquabid because I have not been able to find it, or any moss, locally. I see it in the s&s forum rather regularly. I don't think the marimo balls really do anything beneficial for a tank other than house more beneficial bacteria. Good pickings for shrimps. I have them in my tanks simply because I like the way they look.|

Thanks for the replies Semperfish and Sourgrl. I live pretty close to the Pet Supplies Plus in Pelham I will check them out. In times I've been in there before they seem understaffed and not very educated on fish, so I was kind of turned off. I'm in the process of stocking my 40 gal tank with fish and have been buying them from Petsmart as they have an awesome sale going until 4/21. The neon tetras and glowlight tetras I've been buying are only $1. Also been buying some ghost shrimp when in stock for $0.30 each. I would like some Java moss to go with the anachris I already have to help clean and oxygenate the water some. Semperfish, you said you purchased some Java Moss before, did it grow well? Any tips? Do you think it helps clean/oxygenate the water? I've heard that shrimps love it so thought it would be good for the ghost shrimp. Also, what about those marimo moss balls, are they any good? I've read they do better with more light so I was kinda staying away from them as I have lower light for the tetras. Thanks again,

The bba in those tanks have been my biggest deterrent on purchasing from them. I have seen cherries at Aquarium imports and at Pet supply plus in Hoover. I am very pleased with the plants I've ordered through Bama plants. I'm in Brierfield and have found it better to order my livestock through the forum/online than driving into Hoover.

I'm also in Shelby county (Calera). I've ordered java moss from Pet Supplies Plus in Pelham. You have to ask a manager, but they can order a large variety of plants and fish they normally don't carry. Or you can always go to the swap and shop section of this forum (I think is the best choice).
Other stores are of course petsmart and petco. However their selection is very thin at best.
Aquarium imports in Hoover is mostly saltwater, but he does have some freshwater fish and sometimes the hard to find ones. His plants are mostly covered with BBA algea.
Pet supermarkets in Vestavia Hills used to have a good selection of plants and fish (even bought amano shrimp and olive nerite snails there), but the last time I went it wasn't looking good.

I recently got back into aquariums and I live in the Shelby county area. I have a 40gal tank with tetras, a few ghost shrimp, and some anachris. I was wanting to get some more plants that help clean the water and are easy to maintain. I was thinking of some Java moss but can't find any locally. Anyone have any info, do people still check this post, it looks a little old?
I would also be interested in talking with locals about any good stores and sharing info/ideas.
