Where to get java moss in Ontario?

I was wondering if anyone living in Ontario knows where I can get java moss. I've looked everywhere to no avail. I'd rather not buy online because shipping costs more than the moss itself. Any tips?

Find out if there's a local fish keeping society in your area. They may have periodic auctions where people sell their extra plants. Some will also have forums so you don't need to wait for an auction. Or if there isn't a society, there may still be local forums. Try searching things like "Ontario fish," and similar terms.

@babystarz: Thanks for the tips! I've tried looking for something like that, but haven't found any clubs in a city near me yet. And the local forums have yielded nothing either. :/

I know, right?! I've even been looking on kijiji and craigslist, but I haven't found anyone selling any close to me. It's always too far away. >.< I hope I find some soon. I really want to start a moss wall on the back of my 5 gallon.

It's too bad customs is ridiculous and slow, or I'd send you some myself. I'm closer to you than most other places in Canada

I live in Saskatchewan and I just ordered some plants from this site. They have very reasonable pricing compared to the pet stores here, and shipping was only $11.00. I haven't received my plants yet but he gets really good reviews and will be getting a new shipment at the end of the month.

EDIT: Anyone in Canada know where to get snails or shrimp online?
