reefcleaners.org has halophila... probably limited supplies at the moment because of the recent weather though.

Anyone have an updated list as to sites or people that sell macros and seagrasses? Most of the sites on the first post dont work anymore.

To quote Gates:

But note, it's winter in Florida and much of the macro algae is beginning (or already has) died off. Spring and Summer are the best order times.

I did just order from them and got a monster pile of C. prolifera and a bunch of pods.

Might want to research online for reviews for aquacon before ordering. They are notorious.

I just ordered from http://live-plants.com/ and was very pleased when my Caulerpa and Red Sampler Packs came in yesterday. The bags were generously packed with 5-6 different types of algae per bag.

The USPS does not deliver emails, so why bring up the post office? I have had great delivery from the post office of live fish and aquarium products. It is usually individual experiences and local idiosyncrasy that color our opinion about any delivery service. I remember the FedEx guy leaving a box of fish perched on a snow drift in the middle of our front yard, but that does not mean all FedEx guys are like that.
