I put in an order with Bob's Tropical plants for a medium mat of Java Fern, some java moss, Vallisneria Spiralis aka Eel grass, and an XL Marimo balls.
This is the first time I've dealt Bob's and so far my feelings are bit mixed. All the plants were mixed together in one zip lock bag, annoying but not a deal killer. The medium java fern mat was a good size but about 1/3 of the leaves where yellow or spotty, the eel grass was smaller than I expected but they were only $1, the marimo balls were excellent, green and large, overall I'm happy with what I got at the price.
I put in about 1/2 the Java Fern mat, java moss, the eel grass and 1 Marimo ball last night. They were looking good this morning before I left. The softball sized marimo was untouched as expected, the java fern was untouched and only a few nibbles taken out of the eel grass.
