Where to find Christmas moss in SoCal stores?


Does anyone know where to buy
Christmas moss in SoCal? I'm trying
to make a good low maintence carpet,
and people told me java moss is hard
to work with. If no one knows of a place,
what would you recommend for an outdoor
tank, no co2, and no fertilizers? Also,
I can't order online sadly.

CK Aquarium (I believe in West Covina) and A+ Tropical (Temple City) are two stores that you are likely (almost guaranteed) to carry (or get) Xmas moss. Now remember that planted tanks stock up based on what sells - moreso than other kinds of pet stores (or stores in general).

I suggest that you call whichever store is closer and ask them to order some (make sure you ask for the price before you ask them to order some in). I fear that if you were just to visit the store, they may not have it at that time.

I'm looking for a little closer because 30 miles
away is pretty far. I live in Anaheim. Any other
suggestions?
