Im going to buy my plants and I did post a ad on wtb section here but just oncase that doesnt pan out I was hoping you all might be able to tell me whats the best place to order online?
What kind of plants are you looking for? I sell trimmings from times to times. I highly reccomend you swap&shop section of plantedtank.net. I'm a member there and I got all my plants from other members- much cheaper than any online vendor.
And to answer the other question- no, plants are nowhere as expensive as corals. The examples above are very rare plants (think of them as black tangs of plants) or ones just discovered, hence the price. Expecct to pay $10-25 shipped for a plant pack.
