live saltwater plants online?

Hey everyone! I would like to possibly add some plants to my 29 gal. Biocube. Any suggestions on type? I don't want to be over run with a weed type and I have a bi color angel that may eat them which is fine. Also, what online retailer do u suggest?

Besides the macro in my sump I only have some mangrove pods that I'm growing in hopes of having a planted mangrove tank in the next year or so.
Check out this site though they should be able to help you better than I can.

LA Reefs - Specializing in Live Coral, Macroalgae, and Inverts for Reef Aquariums is good, as is liveaquaria.com, whom I have ordered from. Everything arrived healthy and on time.
My absolute best experience ordering aquarium flora online was from Gulf Coast Ecosystems (www.live-plants.com). Excellent selection, though most varieties are seasonally available. I orered their "Halimeda Sampler Pack" (which would be better named Calcareous Green Algae Sampler Pack) with an emailed request to not get any Halimeda since I already had some. The pack is supposed to include 5 plants. I got 3 shaving brush, 2 mermaid's fan, 1 pine cone, and about a half dozen small C. Barbatos. Quality was superb, quantity was well above what I paid for. Strongly recommend them!

I'm looking into it. I got a handfull of macro algae from my LFS. He doesn't even sell it, but gave me some out of his refugium which was inundated with pods! Bonus!!
