    Just thought I’d let you know that I’m placing orders for aquatic plants from Singapore these days. If anyone has been struggling to find that rare and unusual plant you’ve always wanted, PM me and I’ll see if it’s available. My suppliers stocklist has over 500 species so there is a fair chance I can source it for you.

    Cheers

    Is the current stocklist in a copy-and-pasteable format Jared?

    I’m suprised BlueDave hasn’t ask any Q’s here as he loves plants /smile.gif” style=”vertical-align:middle” emoid=”:)” border=”0″ alt=”smile.gif” />
    A question which needs to be asked these days is, Do you know if they’re being treated with any form of anti-snail treatment as it will kill inverts and many of us are into them, snails, shrimps, lobsters

    Here’s a basic list. I’m off to Ayreshire shooting for a few days and will have limited net access, but will answer any questions as soon as I can. Most are available as single plants, bunches, potted, some on bogwood and of course bulbs.

    They are not treated with anti snail remedies, and thus should be quarantined (Like all plants purchased before been introduced into your main tanks to minimise the risk of snail infestastion. Not that many people ever do this of course!

    oh and as to quarantining plants – thats what the clown loaches are for – might be little buggers and dig up the plants but they do munch the snails!!

    Hi everyone,

    I’m not very good with plants in aquarium, i can only ever seem to grow java moss and hornwort, which then gets eaten by my geophagus brasiliensis. Oh and i know just about nothing about them! /thumbs_up.gif” style=”vertical-align:middle” emoid=”:thumbsup:” border=”0″ alt=”thumbs_up.gif” />

    [I live in Hamilton, Ontario and have been ordering plants from Malaysia recently. I have been pretty lucky so far because the supplier marks the plants as “tank ornaments,” otherwise, the LFS tells me that its harder and harder to get plants due to new laws in Canada prohibiting any plants/dirt crossing the border.

    I’ve been able to get things like dwarf anubias and amazon swords, but christmas moss, rubra nymphae, and marimo I ordered all online.

    It’s great to know there are other options out there <img src="style_emoticons//smile.gif” style=”vertical-align:middle” emoid=”:)” border=”0″ alt=”smile.gif” />
