Yeah, that's always a bonus GG.At least at your lfs you can see the plants first hand and pick the healthiest ones.
I had a bad experience with buying a couple plants at my lfs, one had bearded algae the other had MTS. Lucky for me I spotted the snail before putting the plant in and the algae was just on that plant so it was yanked and tossed.
Its to bad cause they are so close but Buce Plants have been very good for the most part.
Cool adventure ehhh
I think i irritate the staff at my LFS sometimes 'cause i like to take my time when buying plants. They stand around and get all fidgety and so i wait a while and then finally say, "its ok, i'll let you know when im right" and they walk off all pissed
I always do a Hydrogen Peroxide dip before placing the plants in the tank.
Although, i was that keen to put this new plant into "its spot" i just put it straight in the tank without treating (5 mins later, oh s**t, too late).
