I usually purchase plants online and like AquariumPlants.com for quality and service. Avoid azgardens as they are notorious for bad service.

I am a low tech Planted tank enthusiast having gotten started with Diane Walstad's book a few years ago. It has been great fun.

Oh hey!

I saw you joined the Treasure Valley Aquarium Club recently. Chat us up we are pretty civilized

I'm 90% sure I've seen it at Boise's Freshwater. Hang a left as soon as you go in the door and their (small) section of plant stuff is against the wall there.

This is a total reach, but was wondering if anyone was possibly from Kuna on this site.

Just a "shot in the dark".

I usually order it online, but I have seen it at PetSmart by the Town Square Mall and Fish Aquariums & Stuff.

Cynth I know I am probably dreaming for asking this.. but has anyone seen drop checkers at any of the LFS?

I broke mine trying to clean it....
