Ditto Rich815

If you need to find lots of mosses you could try AFA in CA. They have a great selection and shipping isn't too bad.

I would go with that is just a rumor.
are you sure it's aquariumplants.com might be confusing freshwaterplants.com freshwateraquariumplants.com and aquariumplants.com

I ordered plants. They ranged from being in okay condition to melting. The order took 10 days to ship. The website listed all plants in stock. Nope, and they made a substitution that was nonsensical -- a back of the tank plant in place of a foreground plant. When my order arrived I looked and they were still showing all plants in stock.

I will say the plants were very well packed. But do you really care how well packed your plants are when they are mush and were obviously nearly mush when packed?

I complained. No response. I will never, ever do business with them again.

LIZ Thanks and that stinks, are there any other places to get good size plants from. the LFS are so expensive around here. 6.99-8.99 for a pot of crypt lutea, some times I get lucky and find it for 4.99. but the pots only have 6-9 leafs... I have any fish so I'm needing warm water plants. also limited on cash when I only get a my check once a month.

Thumbs down Re: Aquariumplants.com?

I'll never be ordering from this place again. Ordered at 9AM on a Monday morning and didn't receive my overnight shipment until Thursday. I realize shipping doesn't include processing time, but these guys really need to get their times down. When I called for a status check on Wed. they couldn't even tell me for sure when it would be going out.

One of the items I ordered was listed as in-stock on their website, but wasn't. They ended up subbing 2x Limnophila Americana v. Baewensis for 3 bunches of some horrible looking red plant (thinking Nesaea Red or a type of Ludwiga). ALL the bunches were infested with green algae. Would be nice if they'd at least tell you wtf they subbed with..... All the plants were soppy as hell from excess H20 in the ziploc and wraps. Even the potted HC I ordered was already deteriorating on one side.

All in all, totally unsatisfied. What a waste of money. Gonna be strictly dealing with private purchases via the community from now on.

All the plants in my aquaria (except one) are from APC and I've purchased 3 UV sterilzers, two regulators and whole lot of other stuff from them! I've been buying stuff from them for almost 3 years!

I really think that their electronic regulator is absolutely the best regulator you can buy.
I have not had any real problems with APC.

On the down side, they frequently are out of stock on items. I usually call and place my order over the phone and check if items are in stock.

I guess that I am just lucky.

Thumbs up Re: Aquariumplants.com?

It was with a little trepidation that I placed my order this weekend after the mixed reviews. My order shipped yesterday by 2nd day UPS and I got it early today. It was a small order for a nano tank. The plants were nice and healthy and I am very pleased. I will very likely buy from them again in a few weeks when I rescape my 60P.

2nd shipment was just fair to OK. The 2 HC mats looked like it got mushed and the middle part of it looked like it was in the early stage of melt. Not planting these.
