Again, as I said in the post; part of the appeal is a 'once and done' way to get started. A 'starter pack' of heartier plants good for high tech tanks.
I'm not at all averse to buying from the forum; it's just navigating long lists of plants I don't recognize. Still researching and learning and trying to decide just what exactly I need anyway! And the problem with a WTB thread is I'd need to know what I wanted! Though I suppose I could just buy that exact list of what's on the Live Aquaria page, fair enough. Would probably cost a bit more paying for shipping for each of these items. Actually, if I ordered one item per seller shipping would cost more than the whole package from LiveAquaria. But I suppose if I look carefully I can crop up a few shipments and keep the cost down. Though looking at the prices+shipping in the For Sale thread, it's certainly not cheaper. BUT, that's okay, I WOULD rather buy from the forum. Though it's riddled with "not responsible" disclaimers, compared to LiveAquaria's guarantee, and LiveAquaria's shipping quote is 2day or next day air, not ground.
