Help getting Moss in Inland Empire/OC California?

So I'm having a hard time finding a store with Moss for my tank in this area. I live in Corona but anywhere reasonably close would be worth the drive for me since getting it online seems to be the more expensive option.

Anyone live around here that can tell me where a fish store worth its name is? All the ones I've crashed into are... less then awesome.

Well I've been looking all over. I'm in East RIverside/MoVal. I've gone as far as Murrieta/Temecula and haven't found any plants worth buying. Its a shame that being in a state that is known for its agriculture you get to the IE and unless its citrus you can't find anything.

Yeah it's driving me crazy. I can find a few things that look healthy and nice but moss is apparently a dead zone :/

I think the best bet is just to find something online. Its the only way to get most things since mom and pop fish stores dont exist around here really. Petco or Petsmart and that is about it. Or Walmart if you're really desperate but I might as well just poison my tank while I'm at it.

some petsmarts around me .. have started getting moss in .. they are in little white cups like how they keep the bettas .. some petsmart's have them and some don't .. i'd definatly call around .. also if your willing to drive .. there's an aquarium in brea that also has moss and a good variety of plants .. it's http://www.yelp.com/biz/tongs-tropic...nd-pets-brea-2 .. but call them first to see if they got a new shipment of moss before heading out

Found a place!! Well sort of. Store is located in Moreno Valley right next to the freeway so not too far. "Exotic Tropical Fish of the World" 951-485-0999 they said they can order java moss whenever it is available. First time there, they have a pretty small set up. half the tanks are empty and 1/4 are housed with preordered fish and then a few other tanks with a small variety of salt and freshwater. Seems like they are mainly a special order store. Their supplies are a slight cheaper than petco or petsmart. The lady said she can order any plants we want so I'm guessing its the only ordering option for the area since there are no other LFS around.
