To the world of live plants! I ordered some live plants & snails from canadianaquatics, and they arrived today~! They gave me tons of extra hornwort! So, these are all 5 of my tanks with recently added Vallisneria and Hornwort. Some frogbit was thrown in too :D Indian Almond Leaves are in there as well. No tannins yet.

How much are plants in general? I buy my plants from Big Al's (sometimes from PetSmart if they're not cover in algae and look dead), and it's really expensive spent $200 on plants. >:
Well, the selection isnt great, but if you've got high lighting it would be fine. The hornwort and vallisneria were $25 together, $1/stem for the hornwort (15 stems, I got way more than that), and $3/plant for vallisneria (more than what I ordered too). Not expensive at all IMO. They arrived in great condition, I just threw them in the tanks and didnt see much brown.
