Mine has tubes. I wouldn't want to buy any from the tanks there anyway for fear of bring home diseases from the fish.

Mine has its own planted tank setup with its own filtration system and no fish, so there would be no issue there. But still, I'd be more likely to try to sell them my plants than buying theirs lol.

Yeah, mine too. Both petco and petsmart in town sell the tubes. The petco still sells SOME loose plants in their plant tank, but it looks like they're turning it into a coy showcase?

My Petsmart actually just got a plant tank. They have a whole row of them now. That's where I got my moneywort and mondo grass. They have the tubes too, but it's a small selection and they all look pretty dead. The ones in the tank were actually really nice though! I was quite surprised.

Yeah, the ones they sold in the tank were always in really good condition, and if I went the day before their shipment came in, the plants were pretty well picked over. They weren't sold out, but only a few of some plantslike dwarf hairgrass and swords would be left. So they were selling pretty good. It's just weird that they decided to go with the tubed ones.
Petcos in the area still have plant tanks, but they always look kind of gross, and they have a lame selection. I got some of my favorite plants from tubes, actually.
My main issue with Petsmart, like I said, is that I won't be able to get frill plant there anymore, and I've never seen it sold anywhere else.

One of my local fish stores, I bought some plants from and I QT'd them for a couple weeks and ended up with a million pond snails, about 5 MTS (which are going into my newly set up soil tank), copepods, and TUBIFEX WORMS, which totally gross me OUT!
I also bought a huge amazon sword there which ended up costing me $20.

It's about 11" tall and it has about 35 leaves. I wouldn't have bought it if I knew it was $20 before he rang me up.

Mine used to have the really big tank just for plants and snails, and now it's a measly shelf of tube plants.
