You do know that this company

Pangea America - https://www.pangeaamerica.com/

Doesn't sell live plants right? Those are replicas

Didn't realize that to be honest. Removed that from the list. Thanks.

I thought they are protected. Haven't seen any star or paddle grass for a while.

I would also add algaebarn.com. They have a larger selection of macro algae and are planning on expanding their selection in the future.

I'm looking for shoal grass; if anybody knows of a source, please let me know! I can't find it anywhere, but hopefully some will turn up between now and June

I’m looking for some type of algae that roots for a part of my sump with sand if anyone has any leads. Looked through the places mentioned here, and looks like they are out of stock of the ones I like.

Florida Pets dot com sells shoal grass. They were hit hard by the hurricane last year, so they haven't had it in stock, but keep an eye out.

Caulerpa prolifera roots in sand. It is available online, here and there.

I was also thinking mangroves, but I’ve heard about many people’s failure to adapt them to reef tank salinity levels.
