Looking for specifically some Hornwort but would prefer a sampler mix of clippings (clearly I am not expecting a mix of full grown plants) including hornwort.

Working on establishing a true planted tank... currently only a couple plants in it.

Have some clippings from Spinne coming and some Java Moss from Junaid368, and some Jungle Val from Jerzeedevl from separate threads.

I want to thank all who are helping me set up this tank with both RAOK, advice, and low cost purchases. You all are highly supportive to the hobby and should be commended!

So I am seeking this last mix to flesh out my first truly "Planted Tank."

It is also my shrimp tank so hoping to not only provide food but nitrate removal as well as give comfort to the shrimps!


Thanks in advance for any and all offers! Running out of pocket money so the most bang for the buck with widest variety would be obviously appriciated as I really can only afford one more say, 10.00 shipping fee or my wife will have me "sleeping with the fishes" as it were......

"Bandit",
Hornwort is one of the least expensive plants you can buy. Go to your LFS and you'll get plenty for less than the $10 you say you can pay for shipping.

Problem is.....every time I buy plants from the LFS box store, things go wrong with my tanks. Fish get sick or I get mysterious creatures growing to just a sudden snail infestation.
So I don't trust them anymore.
The local mom and pop doesn't really deal in live plants.
So I am reduced to asking on here :bounce:

In this scenario, it's always good to put them into a bleach solution. At least then it will help remove any unwanted pests.

Oh and I have some telanthera reineckii. I'm in the process of moving so I have to combine my tanks and I have wayyyy too many plants. The boss isn't going to let me move all my tanks. She said two at most :-(
