Look on craigslist, there's a guy in KoP selling shrimp and a ton of different plants. He's a great guy and he charges a very reasonable amount for everything.

I'm right in West Chester University, I can hook you up. Just gotta wait until I go home again to pick up some plants for ya. I got anubias, java fern, vals, chain sword, s. repens, glosso, amazon swords, java moss, etc.

Just shoot me a PM with what you're looking to spend and I can make you a plant package, or just ask me for individual prices on things your interested in.

I second this suggestion, Bob is a really nice guy. Everything I pointed at he said $1 or $2. I bought 20+ shrimp from him too and they looked pretty nice. I haven't seen more than 3 at a time since I put them in my planted 30 gallon though. There isn't any predators in there that would eat them, so I hope they're just hiding in my driftwood haha

definitely check on bob. he has great plants. depending on what you are looking for, i can throw you a bunch of plants if you don't mind driving into philly. i have like 6 rhizomes of narrow and standard java fern i am just gonna toss if no one wants them.

forgot to add.....my wife works in secane, so if you want anything, i might be able to talk her into taking stuff to work with her and you can pick up from her.

Secane is minutes from where I live. If the new guy doesn't want them. I'd be interested. Definitely don't toss those java ferns in the trash. I have a bunch of narrow leaf already, but adding more just fills in my tanks some more
