• Welcome to ScapeCrunch!

    We are a friendly, online community of people interested in planted aquariums. We support and help each other learn and grow. It is our sincere hope that you will join us and find our tight-knit community valuable and fun!

    ScapeCrunch is different than Facebook Groups. Here's how:

    • It is a place where you can make long-term friends in the planted aquarium hobby and have long, multi-day talks on specific subjects.
    • Unlike social media, online communities like ScapeCrunch are much better at curating collective knowledge and in fostering deeper relationships.
    • They lend themselves better at long-form discussions.
    • You can maintain a thread on your personal aquarium with pictures and details. Other members can comment, help and ask questions. You can do the same with their Member Tank threads.

    Where Facebook is more like a large city-wide party, ScapeCrunch is more like your neighborhood bar "where everybody knows your name. And they're always glad you came." It's always fun to go to large parties but it's at the local bar that you feel people really know you. The great part is that you can and should go to both!

    Please consider joining to become a full fledged member of our growing community of planted aquarium obsessed enthusiasts. Let's grow together!

    As a public service, why don't we start a list of quality retailers where hobbyists can purchase aquarium plants? This should help all of us when we need to go plant hunting.

    Please reply to this thread with your recommended aquarium plant seller BUT please see the rules below first.

    • You can only recommend a retailer that YOU have purchased from.

    For the Canadian crowd:

    ABC Plants
    SKA Shrimps & Nature Aquarium (Facebook Only)
    The Aquascape Room

    I'd like to shout out JC&P Aquarium too for picking up live plants, and having a good selection at decent prices (y) (I've only bought lighting from them in the past, but will likely look into placing a plant order).

    For those few in Australia, I can recommend "Aquarzon".

    I've purchased from Aquarzon several times now. They have a great range to choose from, as far as availability of species in Australia goes, and their plants are always very healthy. Delivery is quite fast, price is very competitive, customer service is outstanding, and they often include extras. As a repeat customer, they usually throw in an extra species to try in the order also.

    I’ve purchased from Aquariums West, Tails and Scales, Angelfins, Aquascape room, ABC plants and The Plant Guy … satisfied with all the purchase.
    ABC plants is great, but it should be noted that they're moving their production from Montreal to Maine(USA), so I'm not sure how the ordering process will work for Canadians in the future.

    +1 for Angelfins, Aquascape room, SKA, and The Plant Guy. The Plant Guy's in-house TC stuff is particularly nice (usually has some Erios, and a few of the 'nicer' Rotalas available ) and is economically priced. The Wet Leaf is another Canadian retailer I've had good experiences buying from in the past.

    For the first time I made a purchase to APF and wow, what a selection of plants! Their list is truly one of, if not the best in the US. They have many plants that would be hard to find from other retailers and almost everything is in stock. Hopefully when my order arrives I’ll be just as impressed 👍🏻
    Mine have always come in in good shape. Just mostly emersed and a few times they sent me the wrong plant but refunded them immediately.
