Thanks to the crew at the Co-Op. I have placed a couple of test purchases over the past two weeks and everything has arrived in a timely manner. Just recently purchased two Jungle Val and they arrived properly packaged and the plants appear to be in excellent condition. Unfortunately the weather in Virginia has become cold again and the plants were a little cold, but they are in their quarantine tank and look good. Thanks again!!!
I recieved this in a timely manner, love how it was packed and is looking great in my tank!!
My Jungle Val is growing 2 inches or more a day after a month. I use Easy Green Fertilizer, and Easy Green Root Tabs. No c02 but all my plants are pearling it is amazing. All plants came in perfect shape, portion size made me very happy. Thank you Aquarium Co-Op Team!
Ordered 9 pots of various plants and some other misc. dry goods. Everything went smoothly with shipping and the plants looked wonderful upon arrival. Wrapping each plant in wet paper towel before bagging it ensured that the foliage didn't dry out during shipping whatsoever. I am thoroughly satisfied with the attention to detail and the fact that they take the time to convert plants before selling them. That's just not something I've found at many retailers.
After receiving my order, I got the plants unwrapped and put into a tank as quickly as I could. My logic behind that was to allow them to acclimate to my water and get their strength back before deciding where to plant them. I believe this process paid off, resulting in less stress for the plants - or at least mediating that stress over a longer period of time. I havn't experienced any melting back after almost 2 weeks time, and don't expect to as all of the plants have sent out plant-lets/runners since being planted or did while still in the pots.
I highly recommend Aquarium Co-op.
Thanks for reading!
Plant came in big an healthy. Opened the rock wool and was able to separate into 5 portions. Really looking forward to how it's gonna look once it takes off.
