I like the idea. Saw you are in WC now. Trip to AFA?
I did make a trip to AFA when I got back up here, but all of the items I used for this tank I've had for months. Got the stones (and a bunch more) for my 75 from AFA, but changed my mind when I got my hands on some Unzan stone for it. Glad I finally got to use a few of them.
Wow, those plants look like they are in incredible condition. How long did it take to ship from UK to CA?
It took 4 days. The plants are in great shape. If you do decide to do it, don't over estimate. You get so much more plant mass in a TC pot than in a standard rockwool pot. I have an extra UG and an extra #45 (SR) pot left. This happened to me the last time I did TC plants.
From what I understand if the plant is TC it is able to be imported legally. So far I have had 2 shipments of TC plants and both have made it with no issues. (I'm not a lawyer and this is not legal advice)
