Hey GekkoGeck0,

Try this guy out on aquabid.com
http://www.aquabid.com/cgi-bin/aucti...Thegreenplanet

Around five dollars a piece for A. 'Petite' less the shipping.

I have seen him before and I appreciate your help, but as I noted above:

I emailed him and all he will take is electronic payments.

I'm not sure if those are true Anubias barteri v. nana 'Petite', he calls them 'mini', no?

That's odd, it says on the item description:

I accept Paypal, bidpay and moneybookers.
Do not hesitate to ask me if you have any questions.
I believe those are really A. 'Petite' judging from the picture provided.



You could always send him an email for confirmation.

Opps! I must have read your post wrong; thought you meant he didn't accept PayPal.

Anyways good luck finding the plants you need.

You should consider moving to Toronto, Ontario. Lots of LFS /w plants from Tropica and the rest of the world.

Yep, that nana "mini" he is offering looks exactly like the "petite" I have.

Alberta has some great clubs, too, I understand. Hey, a killer fish/plant club is as good a reason to move as any, huh?

I've been talking with my fiance for 3 years now about moving to Ontario. We're just starting out, so when it comes down to time to buy a house, we'll probably start looking in the GTA area.

I just wish there were more mail order suppliers in Canada of this sort of stuff. Either that, or for my LFS to stop giving me the run around and give me a yes or no on whether or not they'll get a plant in from Tropica for me in the next Tropica order.

Does anyone know if Canada Customs has issues with sending plants over the border? I'm pretty sure this stuff is easier to get in the States...

Well, I got lucky today. Heard the LFS was getting in a plant shipment from Tropica, and I went down there two hours after they had put the plants out for sale.

I grabbed H. polysperma (I need some taller stem plants to fill things out), Monosolenium tenerum attached to some sort of rock, and Hemianthus callichtroides 'Cuba'.

I'll just have to keep going back every time they get a shipment and try to get what I can, and hope they get in some Anubias barteri v. nana 'Petite'.

I Don't Know If This Will Help Or Not My Favorite Is Aquarium Plants .com In South Dakota. They Have Just About Everything. I Bought Pc Bulbs Just Last Week 19.99 Each And They Are 55 To65 Each At My Lfs. As Far As The Border I Do't Know But They Are Great People There Send An E-mail Or Call They Will Answer All Your ? They Import Plants From All Over The World So I'm Sure They Would Know All The Rules.

If you don't mind me asking GekkoGeck0, how much did the Monsolenium Tenerum cost? The LFS here in Toronto charges $30 for that particular plant.

I got a deal on it. A small lava rock with a 3"x3" portion for $10. They call them "plant rocks" and they are normally $19.99.

They usually have a few of them there, all on lava rocks. They refuse to detach the plant and sell it seperately, although after my purchase I discovered they are attached with a hairnet and certainly haven't been on the rock long enough to establish a good hold.

I took the hairnet off of mine and rewrapped it with fishing line. I don't care for the rock, but it will be sufficient until it establishes and I can take clippings and start putting it where I want it.
