    Shops with Plants?

    I need a few plants for a 20gal. tank and can't find much at Petco or PetsMart. Looking for multiple varieties short and tall and something that does well as a floating plant to provide some cover for shy tetra species. I've been to multiple branches of the above stores and just don't care for the selection...which is always minimal.

    Are there any Atlanta shops that carry more than the chain operations? Yes I know, I just missed the Spring auction. :)

    Thanks.

    premier aquatics Has a nice selection. June meeting it also coming up. And I can say that there will be some myriophyllum mattogrossense and maybe some Cabomba caroliniana.

    I am finding that the buy/sell/trade sections of fish forums like this one is a good source for nice healthy plants. Just make sure the person you are ordering from has experience shipping if it is not a local pick up. I have gotten some really nice plants lately that have been difficult to find online and nearly impossible to find in local stores.

    Online places like trinsfish, aquatic arts, even amazon seem to have a better selection than the box stores.

    I have only been to Premier once a couple weeks ago for the AAAA barbecue. They did seem to have a good variety of plants so you may check them out before searching online and paying shipping cost.

    Thanks Sensed. I found a nice assortment of plants at Premier (better than anywhere else locally) but still no floating plants. I've found my Tetras really feel comfortable and more lively with a little something floating. I'll check this out.

    There was all kinds of frogbit and salvinia at the mini-auction (not so mini with about 150 items) after the meeting last week for a about $1 per bag. I think there was some water lettuce and duckweed that was pretty much given away. I bet if you post on the facebook page, someone would be willing to just give you some. Once that stuff starts growing, you never have to buy it again.

    I think the next meeting we will have one of our club members, Jeff Miotke (Mot on this forum), speaking about aquascaping. Google search him and see some of his work. It is spectacular so we should learn some good stuff. And maybe pick up some good stuff at the auction after??
