Has Anyone Made A Purchase from Aquatic Jungles?


Once I get my tank back in motion I'm hoping to spend about 50 xmas bucks on some Jungle Val. I'm a new guy around here and from what I hear Jungle Val is very beginner friendly. I bought a couple bunches a few months back but it didn't survive due to some beginner screw ups.

On Youtube I've watched Dustins Fish Tanks videos and he runs a website called Aquatic Jungles where he sells 4/5 bunches of val for 7 bucks. I just wanted to see if there was any negative or positive opinions about what this guy sells. The testimonials on the website are all positive, but then again, it's his website.

I bet you'd be fine, but I feel like he charges more than he should at times.

Get 1 bunch, treat it right and it will grow to fill a tank in no time.

This tank started with 1 3" tall val about 9 months ago. Now there are runners everywhere.

if you like his plants...why not go for it..

Shipping is fair but price for the plants..dam! a bit high.

there was a very nice online store that i bought quality plants from and now they have close down for some unknow reason... i love that site! Low cost shipping ($5 no matter teh amount you buy) ...plants were cheap as hell..

the site i know was known as "Sweet Aquatic" ...anyone know what ever happen to it? best price on the net ...

Vendor reviews are strictly prohibited.

Closing this thread, as nothing productive can come from it at this point.
