Initial CO2 Bubble Rate by The Kenosha Kid

Good place to buy java fern? by Dan J. S.
I need to equip my new 110 gallon tank with some java fern. Anyone know a good online store that delivers a nice quantity for the money? Most places show you a nice picture, but in reality you get two or three stands with 1-2 leaves on each strand per bundle. Anyone has good recommendations?
