Yup. Although i don't use excel anymore (i use a glut mixture i get from gitmoe), heir price is about $2 cheaper than anyone around. I won't buy chemicals anywhere else. I should try to sell them some plants, maybe if they saw how quickly good plants sell, they would have better quality stuff. How long do you think rare crypts would last there? Lol

That's a great idea lol. And your crypts wouldn't last long at all if people like you or me or anyone else on this forum walked in there

Yeah, what happened? They had all these plants in different tanks, then they went back to the same two tanks they originally had. Did they bail after they weren't selling massive amounts overnight?

Well, they did have 4 or so tanks filled with swords. Guess pond season didn't do well for them. Plus, everytime i went in, the plants looked worse and worse. Just dead stuff everywhere. Sad really

Yeah every time I've gone in there recently, everythings looks melted and brown. I've gotten lucky a couple times and have walked in there the day they got there shipment and everything looked great. Captain Nemos in east norriton used to be my go to place for plants hands down. But since theyre now owned by pets plus, that has also gone down hill. There was a kid my age named Jason who handled the plant orders and he got some great stuff. One day I walked in and he got in Downoi, Florida sunset crypts, ammania gracillis and a couple more. Those are plants you rarely see in a LFS. Usually only in the forums sold by other members

I would have snagged up every stem of downoi they had....lol and that florida sunset has been scarce since f.a.n. developed the strain. Seems that they can't cultivate it quickly enough. I've been trying to get some for months and i always seem to miss out when it hits the sns
