Ebay plants?

Recommended Posts

I want to get really nice plants for my fish, but none of the shops I have access to carry nice (or even healthy) ones...

I checked ebay, but I worry about getting nasty things into my tank ... SO my question is:

Would a bleach dip (1 part bleach / 19 parts water) be enough to kill anything undesirable or would it take more?

Here are examples of what I have found so far:

My fake plants are just depressing ... :doh11: Thanks in advance!

So bleach dip + quarantine would make it safe enough? How long would you recommend? :D

I think 4 weeks should be plenty. Two might be enough, but it would be good to hear what others think :)

You're right, it would be interesting.. I have an empty 10 gallon tank that could receive them... Hehehe

did you check out this site? http://www.shop.plantedaquariumscentral.com/Live-Aquarium-Plants_c6.htm

Many of our members (including myself) have ordered from them many times. All the plants I've gotten have been in great condition. They even have an anubias variety pack with several different types :) And sometimes they will throw in a free plant or two randomly (not always).

just a thought ;)

I have the same problem as you! Most places won't ship to Canada because of our customs :( But I found a wonderful LFS which always has amazing plants so I can finally get good plants :)

And if they do ship, the costs are too high ... Great for you! Still searching lol.

Exactly! What sucks tho is that I live in a tiny little town. The only time I can go to a pet store of any kind is if I go to Edmonton which is 2.5 hours away. Not just a short shopping trip lol
