HC in the Chicago Area


Trying to acquire some HC in the Chicago area. I'm willing to order online or from my usual LFS, but would like to get some locally (impatient) if possible. Any ideas of a store that may have some? If not best places to order from for both shipping costs and quality? Thanks for your help!

Liveaquaria.com is very good. I bought mine from there.
