I've gotten plants and driftwood from www.aquariumplants.com. They ship nicely and I've never had a problem with quality. They'll sometimes throw in freebies too.

I ended up going with sweet aquatics..I dont know why I didnt before,I think I was scared off by how much stuff they had. A few things were admittedly a bit priceier than bob's, but I think theyre going to be of better quality. Bob's sadly didnt deliver at all in that dept, and most of my order was eaten to death by a hoarde of invasive snails and crab-looking things. Urhdfalsdhfj yuck!

I just looked on sweet aquatics and i wish i'd used them. I unfortunately went with aquatic magic and it's been over a week and i still haven't received my order. I could understand if the shipping had been cheap but it wasn't. I emailed them and they said it could be anything up to 17 days for my order to arrive.

Next time i buy i think i'll go with sweet aquatic as they're just up the road from where i live.

Depends On what you want to plant :) gravel and sand work great. If you have bottom feeders, opt for sand our really fine gravel. Using sand limits some of what you can plant into it, though gavel usually when if its rather fine will not.

And how did you kill anacharis?? ^^;
How long does it take to die? If its fine for a while but dies after like a week or two, it could be from lack of nutrients. Try using a liquid fertilizer :o

@Littlebitty Did it melt? I've heard that it will often melt when you first put it in and then it will shoot up with new plants. How much light do you have? Are you using fertilizer tabs?

about half of my anacharis melted, it was my own fault though, I was trying to do a salt dip just to make sure there was nothing that could hurt my boys, and apparently I was having a brain fart day and decided to use really warm water, think I cooked it a bit, lol, my snail enjoyed trimming the leaves for me though. somehow I still have 3 stems with new buds growing, crazy stuff
