While I can't guarantee that we can get every rare species, I can guarantee that we'll have a premium stock and that the packaging, et cetera will be done properly by people who know what they are doing.
I don't know if we'll ever be able to match all the rare plant variety that is in say, Hong Kong (mostly due to rigid import restrictions on anything alive coming to the US and specifically Texas - there were some updated ban laws on 'invasive' species that include quite a few aquatic plants, so obviously if it's listed there we can't sell it).
I do know though, that the planted section is going to be pretty wild - we've got three panoramic holding system aquariums that contain 180 gallons of water each and are 96 inches across. All 100% dedicated to plants. Future plans also include emmersed grown options and some pretty rockin display concepts for those! We just got the lighting in this week for the system - all LED lights. In addition to normal stock, we'll probably get the oddball trimmed plant or rescaped plant varieties as extra that will be in there (for example if we redo one of the planted layouts and decide not to use any of those plants again, they'll most likely go in the holding system for sale).
So, I'll let your imagination run wild for just a little bit longer - not to make any promises, but if you have special requests, we can probably get them when we get that system completely up.
As far as the "new product line" is concerned - I can't say what it is yet, but you'll love it. You won't have to worry about snails or algae hitch-hiking on these.
