Best place to find plants in STL?

I bought some hornwort from AquaWorld the other day (it's growing but it was only half green and I had a lot of die off from it) and am interested in finding some Java Moss or other kind of easy ground cover for my low-light nano tank. Does anyone know the best place to find some?

Also, where is the best place to buy freshwater cherry shrimp?

Tropical World Pets has always done well by me. They have a decent selection of plants if you catch them right after they've gotten a shipment. Almost always have java moss and java fern.

They also sell RCS for $3, some of the other types of shrimp for $8-10.
They also offer a 10% military discount, the first pet store I've found that does that, so they keep my business pretty easily =)
I just bought eight nice cherries from them too. $2.99 each and two were berried and one has already given birth. A tiny piece of hornwort will turn into more than you can ever use in a few months. I'm throwing the stuff away all the time. I have a vase that is choked full of it and had to move my shrimp because they kept getting their eggs snagged on the stuff.
I didn't know about AquaWorld on Gravois... Can't believe I've been driving out to Watson (I live in the Tower Grove area) when such a great place is a little over a mile away! I met Chris and she was awesome! Answered any question I came up with and was happy to talk to me. Their plants all looked great and they have quite a large assortment of freshwater fish and accessories. Really liked the place.
