I was afraid at first, but once talking to Athena her great communication and attention to detail was amazing and made me feel quite comfortable. All my items arrived fresh and on time, actually came early. Prices are also cheaper then basically all local shops which is a total plus. She carries a plethora of hard to get, rare specimens. I highly recommend this place. Will definitely be a repeat customer. Great buying experience.

This place is wonderful! My plants arrived in perfect health, customer service was great and not to mention good prices. I'll be buying all of my plants here from now on!

Every order has been perfect and exactly what I wanted. If something is out of stock she works with me to get a perfect replacement and find something that will fit my needs.

Finding a good plant supplier in the Rocky Mountain region isn't an easy thing to do. Rooted tanks is at least on par with the other online vendors that I've used in the past. In a lot of cases they are better than most of those vendors. The staples of planted tanks are all there, but what really shines to me, is the selection of rarer, harder to find plants. The only plant that didn't thrive in my tanks has been Scarlet Temple which I bought on a whim, and knew that I didn't necessarily have the lighting for them. Because I have the option to do local pickup and their selection, this is the first place I go when I'm looking for something new.
A note on the pic... Everything but the nana petite, one of the water lilies, and the floaters was bought at Rooted Tanks.

Great communication before, during and after my purchase. I will definitely order again. The plants were healthy, packaged well, and better than expected. They are growing in my new tank set up. Thanks Rooted Tanks!

In setting up my first planted tank, I was nervous about ordering plants online given so many horror stories about customers receiving poor quality plants, or plants dead from shopping delays, or worse, customers never receiving their orders.
Some folks recommended Rooted Tanks on Facebook and looked into them. Reached out to Athena many MANY times regarding her plants and best way to set up my tank. Athena was always super understanding and responsive to my questions. Eventually decided to take the risk and buy, knowing I'd be shipping her plants across the country in blazing summer heat.
Plants arrived after 2 days, earlier than expected, and in great health. They looked awesome, were well-packaged and labeled, and even had some extra stems thrown in! What a great experience with Athena and Rooted Tanks - definitely recommend and will be buying from her again! 5* customer experience!

Outstanding customer service! Her response time through facebook was very fast, and she messaged me back and forth for a few days.
Athena was very informative and patient, and more than happy to offer me advice outside of which plants to get. She went out of her way to help me solve some problems I was having with my planted aquarium, and was very flexible in arranging a pick-up date as I was local (and practiced safe social distancing practices) and had to change the time last minute.
Her plants are very healthy and very cheap for what you get! I paid easily $200 at Petco/Petsmart for the quantity of I got from her for around $50. Unlike the tiny, sad looking plants that I have gotten elsewhere, her plants are healthy will lots of leaves, and some even had roots! Not too mention, she does not ship live animals (such as fish or shrimp) like other companies, which made me happy given how stressful shipping is for live aquatic animals.
She is incredibly knowledgeable and honest about what she sells. I will recommend Rooted Tanks to anyone I know looking for plants! I only wish I found this company back in December when I easily spent $250 on sad-looking and dead plants between department stores, Amazon, Ebay, and craigslist.
Buy your plants, aquarium supplies, or fertilizer from her! You will not be dissapointed!
