Buying Help

    Hi there! I just posted and now I am posting another thread so I hope this isn't breaking the rules :p.
    Anyways, I was looking to see what websites you guys use to buy plants and live fish. I want a trusted website with experienced owners obviously, thanks!

    I've bought plants and shrimp from a member on here (once you have 50 posts you can buy things from people in the Buy, Sale, Trade, Free section). I bought two bettas off EBay.

    What kind of fish and plants are you looking to get? That may help. :)

    I have ordered plants from Buce plants along with their all in one plant food. I am a plant newbie and what I got came looking amazing and is doing well. The plant food is working too. I definitely recommend them.

    A whole bunch of people on here are selling both. What grade of cherry shrimp are you looking for? Or does it not matter?

    Stick around for a while and post on some of the 'fun topics' too and those 50 posts will come like nothing. :)

    Aquatic Arts is the best. They have some very unique stock, and great costumer service. Their shipping is a little on the pricy side, but it's super fast and has very few DOAs.

    Haha, cherry shrimp sound perfect then! Do you have a community tank or are you planning one just for cherry shrimp? :)

    I'am starting a 20 long community tank and I'am very excited :)

    Awesome! Just remember for cherry shrimp that they're pretty small and lots of things view them as lunch. If you get enough and heavily plant it it shouldn't be too much of an issue, though.

    They are awesome, I love their tetras and rasboras.

    Iam planning on having small pvc pipes wrapped in moss for them to hide in along with the other plants and driftwood
