    Hi

    I am looking for some plants to put into my display tank. Anyone know if Mermaid's Fan Plant(Udotea sp.) and Shaving Brush Plant(Penicillus sp.) are available in the country?

    Thanks

    they are on special order, the problem with them is:
    a. they get eaten quicker than they can grow
    b. the ship them on racks and makes them more expensive then corals

    @sean_koekemoer not sure you saw the above post.

    Most of the CT fish markets tanks have these structures. No we do not look after them.
