Fishvet.com is the only other place that has it, that I know of. But you'll pay exhorbitant shipping/handling. Try to get it from Aquabotanic and you'll fare better. I bought it from him and the stuff ships great, looks great and apparently grows faster than other Anubias species. 'Course, we're talking racing turtles here...

I got the order from Fishvet, and was quite happy with it. The shipping was $17, which seems reasonable for 2nd day UPS. I think I also paid around $10 for the styrofoam box and heating pad; are other people cheaper?

Dan, you'll never get ripped off as much as i did.....40 dollars for shipping from AZGardens for a pack of plants the cost of the minimum order ($35)

Me, i thought 40 bucks was normal for overnight....but i'm reading posts from people who paid as little as 17 dollars for overnight.....
so you definitely got a better deal than i

I haven't ordered from them, have not heard anything bad about them, and they have excellent selection- but the website states a $7.50 charge for <$100, plus $11 for packing, then you have shipping. That makes a small order, IMHO, exhorbitant.

Thanks, I think I pretty much have every possible link. Fishvet is the only place that had exactly what I wanted in stock. Well, they didn't have one thing- pelia, or Monoselenium or whatever...

hubba- $40 for overnight is not high; for coral frags by 10am the next morning FedEx I have paid over $60! Mine from FishVet was 2nd day UPS.

I was slightly over $100, so I didn't have the $7.50, but I agree, it probably wouldn't be the place for a small order.

Yes, and I would have to say Fishvet.com has the most comprehensive selection of any online vendor I'm aware of. I don't know of anyone who carries Monosolenium tenerum available in the US. Ghori was selling some at one point, and AB tried it, but I think it went to mush. That's what it did for me, as well.
