Both stock tropica plants, which aren't cheap but are the best quality. Unfortunately now greenline has gone under, there isn't really a place for bulk buy cheapo plants. The other online shops are pretty crap. Java-plants get OK reviews but avoid 'plants alive', I had no end of trouble with them.

EDIT - if you live near an MA most stock the Aquafleur range of plants which if you get them on the day of arrival can be decent quality and price. If you are friendly with them, you might even be able to put in a specific order.

Thanks guys that is much appreciated. Just looking at a place called uk aquarium gardening has anyone any thoughts on this place, does look expensive though, and yes sad about Andy at Greenline that place will be missed.
