Looking to buy some guppy grass and small "pest" snails around Central NJ

Hi,

I recently moved back to NJ and am setting my tank back up for some guppies. I'm kind of weird and really like the random little pest snails breeding everywhere and usually just buy a few plants covered in them to get it started, but every aquarium store around I've been to so far doesn't seem to have any. Maybe someone on here has a ton of them and doesn't mind parting with a couple.

Likewise I really like having a giant ball of guppy grass floating around, but can't find any for sale and maybe someone else has an overabundance and wouldn't mind sharing a ziplock bag of it.

I really hate to buy online somewhere because I used to throw both out in huge amounts from my tank every week since they grew/bred so quickly. I'm happy to come pick up and give you a few bucks.

Bill

I don't have any, but if you're local to Monmouth Junction, the Petsmart on route 1 had a TON of bladder snails in their tanks this weekend.

I'm in Freehold, I end up all over the place some days though. If you're in Matawan, I'll definitely pick them up though. Those are my favorite variety of the little guys.

I don't mind picking them up in East Brunswick, both are the same distance. Send me a message on here with the details. Thanks a ton!

If it weren't so bloody hot I'd send you some.

Dilution is the solution for the pollution.

Which? I'm not in a huge rush.

On a side note, I think I called every aquarium store within an hour of me and none have even heard of guppy/naja grass being available on their order forms. I used to live in Wisconsin and they had the stuff everywhere. Is it that weird of a plant?

Guppy grass. I've got a ton. Down here weather isn't fit for shipping until fall at the earliest. I got some plants in a couple of months ago and they were cooked.
