Good Deal on Pinpoint pH Controller by Arnim
First the disclaimer: I have absolutely no vested interest in this other than I have been obsessively searching for a good pH controller at a reasonable cost as I plan and set up my planted tank. I finally settled on the Pinpoint because I found a killer deal at Premium Aquatics, Inc. It...

I have been to quite a few pet/fish stores in the area and the plant selection is limited and the quality poor. I am looking for some low light plants for a small aquarim. Anyone have suggestions for shops or plants to sell? I would rather not have to buy online. Thanks, Chris
