I'd like to add rcs t my 39 gallon tank but need to buy some java moss. Is this a good choice, and who sells it?
If you have other live plants moss isn't absolutely necessary. However I recommend buceplant.com, all plants I've purchased from them have been very good quality with one exception (I live in Florida and plants don't do well in the post during summer).

Greetings Fahn, all I have are plastics. I live a little farther south, Puerto Rico, do you mean that java g won't do well in the tropics?

No, it'll do fine, just plants don't handle shipping well in hot or very cold weather.

Not sure what's available in Puerto Rico, do you have an local fish or pet shop you could order from?

There's Petco and Petsmart about half an hour or so from me, but not sure if they have plants.

Check your local classified ads, usually there should be a tab or category for fish stuff and people sell plants for a pretty low price since there are no shipping costs involved.

When you called and asked them, what did they say?

Expecting new shipment this week, may include RCS. Petco.
Petsmart seems to have a problem with their phone. Will retry later.

Ebay has tons of seller for java moss. I got mine from ebay.

Also, I would also get some water lettuce. Their root system is extensive and it also absorbs nitrate crazy. shrimps are sensitive to water parameter. So nitrate should be kept as minimal as possible. Also shrimps love grazing on the root.
