Plants from eBay?

Sorry for bothering everyone again.

I've been trying to find a place in town that has Java Moss but the only places that have any have bad snail problems and the tanks look too dirty for me to trust.

I've looked online and everyone is charging 10$ for almost nothing for Java Moss.
my only fear is it would be unhealthy or full of snails.

Anyone know where I can get good java moss online? Or can anyone sell a reasonable amount for what they are charging?

I just got some Java Moss grown on black slate for $7 on eBay (that includes shipping). I know he has more for sale. My package should arrive sometime tomorrow or Friday. I can let you know how it goes.

This is my first eBay plant purchase. I hope it goes well. I tried to get some Hornwort on AquaBids and it did not go well.

Just sent you a PM. Let me know if you don't get it. I'll come back here and let everyone know if it arrives safely.

I was lucky to get it for so cheap.

As promised a picture of the Java Moss. It's a little more brown than I'd like but I'm hoping it'll perk up.
