pool filter sand
flora max black

Plants

Hydrocotyle tripartita 'Japan'

So got some plants in from aquariumplants .com not real happy with the plants , when they got here were all mushy and paying $16 for 2 day shipping kinda disappointed but the Japan is coming back but I don't think the renekii isn't going to make it . They said if I had chosen the one day shipping would have replaced them but can't see spending $35 for shipping for $8 worth it plants.

Blech! I ordered from aquariumplants.com once. I ordered some kind of moss and what I got was a patch of brown, deader than dead moss. When I called and complained, they told me to shut up about it and not say anything. I'm paraphrasing, but the person I spoke with may as well told me to shut up.

That was over 6 years ago and they're still peddling dead plants. Some things never do change. Sorry you got ripped off.

One of the plants came back to life and it was the one I really wanted so not to mad but there shipping prices is to high for 1 day shipping $35.00 on something that weighs 8 ounces . I work at a car dealer and we overnight stuff all the time that ways over 50 pounds for $40 .

Never have had an issue with aquariumplants.com with next day delivery.
Even got a double order once, and called to see if I was gonna get billed double and they replied,,"Our mistake enjoy".
Just placed a $150.00 order this morning for my re-dirted 80 gal and hope for similar experience as in the past.

Ya I understand that with next day order they would have replaced them but paying $35 for next day on 2 plants that way 5 ounces is kinda steep . And the customer service kinda sucked I was told I would get a call back witch never happened , I work in the customer service line and if you tell a customer you are going to cll them back you do even if it to tell them you cant do anything .If I had ordered $150 worth of plants i would have no problem paying high shipping . Next time I am just gonna stick to Pets Mart for my plants no shipping and get more for the price . They have a good selection of tissue culture plants but didn't have Hydrocotyle tripartita 'Japan' , lucky for me that's the plant that did survive .

Not a fan. Makes the water look dirty. But only thing that matters is if you like it.
