Any amount of frogbit to start with would be fantastic. Hopefully, I can grow additional from that!

I'm not in any huge hurry. I'll be happy to work with your schedule.

I finally stopped in at Petworld in Boiling Springs this week. Nice, old-fashioned store that actually has individual tanks with isolated water. Not that recirculated, infection-spreading system used by most stores now. A little elevated on some items (shrimp $$, as mentioned), but if I need stuff and he's in shouting range of mail-order pricing, I'll use him! I did get an earful on the new healthcare law while I was browsing, but a nice guy.

Thanks, I had not thought about Gastonia. I tried Fintastic in Charlotte when I had to pick up someone from CLT airport. Neat store, some very cool, but slightly overpriced equipment. Fish prices were ok, not outstanding but they had a good variety of species. The staff I spoke with were not well-informed. No floating plants when I was there.

I live in Greer and Work in Spartanburg (about 5 miles from Petworld), so we can either meet up or I'll send it to you for $6 to cover shipping. Let me know! Also, are you on SCAA yet?

honestly there aren't any good stores for plants anywhere. most sale the same old same old. there is a lfs in my town and one in hickory that will special order anything I want as long as their supplier has it. other option is going to fish club meetings and getting plants and trimmings from members.

Tried to join, but keeps rejecting my "answer this question" answer. If you can, please let the SCAA forum admin know he/she needs to check the registration question.
