FYI: Dolphin Pet in Campbell and Aquatic Life Forms in Sunnyvale are Out of Business as of January 2013.
Robert from Aquatic Life Forms tells me he will be opening up as a Mail Order Only business called Sunnyvale Aquatics sometime soon.

|Wayne Dwops||I'm going on holiday to uh..point reyes? some area near marin apparently i dunno... but I will be sure to stop by Aqua Forest on the way back! It sounds awesome. I wish I had known about the shop in salinas when I took trips to monterey last year, i don't know if i could handle the drive up there again.|

|chubky||If you can make it out to SF, you should check out Aqua Forest on Fillmore near Japantown. That place is quite impressive!|

if you are ever down in salinas, Pet Fun is a pretty good one. they model their store after large chain stores, but they are privately owned. like most LPS, they will special order anything you want.
they usually have some pretty good deals on plants. i got several bunches of ludwigia glandulosa and rotala magenta from them for less than 2 dollars a bunch. i know its a bit of a drive, but its a pretty nice place.
if you ever go there and buy a tank and fish on the same day, be sure to tell them that you have other tanks the fish will go into. they wont sell you fish if you intend to put them in an uncycled tank.

|Wayne Dwops||I just decided to buy the plants I wanted online but I'm still looking for CPDs! I'm not having luck with my RCS from Dolphin though. I went back to get another six pack but they are closing down on the 15th and had already cleared the RCS/CPD tank, boo! I am thinking about clubs but I am pretty shy so I don't know if I'd be up to it, same with meeting up with people. I did go to Neptune Aquatics a while ago but didn't get anything but I am going back this week.|

You should check out the local clubs if you haven't already.
SFBAAPS is the bay area plant club and has really cool people with many different plants. You can join at sfbaaps.org by joining the forum. The meet dates are also posted on the forum.
Also there is SVAS and there are some people who bring CPD's occaisonally which go for decent prices. Maybe ~$8 for a bag of 3 at times, but it really depends on who is there and if a lot of people want them. They meet on the first saturday of the month. Topics are posted at there website siliconvalleyaquariumsociety.com and I believe that January's is supposed to be an aquatic plant talk given by Tom Barr.
Hope this helps,

Dolphin/Neptune/king aquarium are pretty good. Neptune runs co2 on their plant tanks and has a good selection of driftwood and rocks. Dolphin has more tanks and stands but most of the time their planted stuff has algae. Depends on what you're looking for. Neptune sells aqua soil too.
Cpd are usually around 7$ each at most places.
