Should I get this?!?! :D

I've had horrible luck finding live plants for my cycling aquarium, so until I find some good ones, I've resorted to silk plants. I've been looking around a lot of different petstores, but there aren't any of the plants I'm looking for :P But, you won't believe this; I found a group of live plants from sears.com, and it has some of the plants I want, and some that look really cool :D

http://www.sears.com/shc/s/p_10153_1...No=2&blockType=

It's a bit expensive, but it's the least expensive of the three options that came up from this : http://www.sears.com/shc/s/s_10153_1...17=java%20fern , and it looks like it has some great plants. Once I scrape together enough money, and I get the tank cycled and the fish and shrimp settled in, do you think it's worth it? I'm hoping if I decide to buy it, that the plants will come in good condition, but there's no garentee.

Nice find! The price (with shipping) seems to be on par with what's being offered on aquabid. Plus you can probably contact Customer Service and return it if you're not happy with them.

Hermit paws: good point. But, I was looking around, and some of the stuff they ship is from different brands, but still a good price.

Random Fish: Thanks. I'll probably look into buying this just a bit more before making a final decision

Hermitpaws that IS true, it is an appliance store, but if you go to the link and see the SELLER it is NOT being sold by sears, a company is advertising their products on sears. You could take a look at the company's website JKfish and see if reviews/ratings are high and if it is legitimately reliable. Remember it is NOT sold by sears.

I highly recommend this site: http://www.plantedaquariumscentral.c...-Plants_c6.htm

The plants always come very well packaged, you will be surprised by the amount of packaging used. The plants are of a high quality and the seller is such a nice lady! She will usually give you a little extra, too. :)
