Where to order from?
Hi guys, my tank is all set up and now i'm just about to order my plants.
however, i'm not exactly sure who i should order from

i want to order a large portion of Eleocharis Parvulus (to fill a 30 gallon long 48 x 12) and some fast growers

I live in Southern California and the only place that specifies that they sell Eleocharis Parvulus is However, they are quite far from where i live and i have had no experience with them yet, are they reliable as a retailer and are there any other retailers you guys may want to suggest? (my priority is the hairgrass)

Thank you for your help,

Roy Deki 10-12-2004 10:58 AM has always been very good to me. Vic is very generous and great to work with. If you don't want substitutions then state that when you order. Vic will not bill you until your order goes out. So you only get charged for the plants that you've ordered, not substitutions that you really don't want.

The only other place I know where to get parvulus is from Charley (Lowcoaster on aquabid). He regularly imports from Oriental Aquariums.

I have also have had very good experience with Vic, but I do not think he hase parvulus.

Charley's E. Parvula is healthy and has taken over a 30g tank of mine. He is very reliable. Email him directly and he will sell without you waiting for the end of the auction.

I noticed in his recent auctions on Aquabid, he sells Eriocaulon sp., Elatine triandra, and some other off the beaten path plants.

I'll second or third Charley. I've ordered a few times on Aquabid from him and this week ordered right from him for some things I can't get locally or Aquabotanic.

Very nice guy and he does tell you when the stuff is coming in if he does not have it on hand and when you will get it. He just got another shipment in this week and he did have it on his list.

Other then Charley for harder to find stuff I have always been happy with the handful of orders from Robert is a great guy too. And his' CS is top notch. Never been let down there either. And Aquabotanic does have it listed on his site.

As for the other places, I have no experience with them

I guess I am the only one on the west coast... I have acicularis, and I bet you couldn't tell it apart from parvulus
