Wasilla

I have a 55 gallon planted low-tech and a 45 gallon bowfront planted low-tech. Nothing fancy in them, but regular trimmings... Crypts and vals doing well and need thinning periodically... Some snails in the tank. Would be willing to post here when I have extras to give away...

Okay so I got the store a new wholesale account with Jermack out of New York. We will no longer be ordering plants from segrest farms. Segrest was able to supply me with decent plants but was always out of what I wanted. Here are some pics of the current store plant tank:

Hi Logan, I live in Anchorage! I don't currently have a tank but am going to set up a small planted tank with a few fish in the near future. I am interested in a planted tank group, although I don't have any trimmings to swap currently.

Right on Logan, looks like your recruiting is working! Wish I was closer to stop in more often. Fishin' is too good to leave the Kenai! Looks like my 40B plans are amuck and will be planting another 75 instead ..... Oh darn. Maybe looking into more fish and eco complete than originally thought. Still looking for breeders on the keyholes and apistogramma bordello. Found one guy in Washington, how has ur search been goin since we last talked??

Keep us all posted , and as always, it's nice to finally have some plant freaks in AK. Been waiting for a few years now. I'll bring a bunch of trimmings and a whole ton of emmersed HC. You got a tank ready with CO2? If not at the store it's all yours,

Best fishes everyone!

Tank is looking pretty good, finally got the spray bar at the right angle so its doesn't over power the fish, and noise.

Both of the 40b at the store run co2. More hc is always nice! I am able to get all of the fish you requested. If you can get me a heads up on when you will be traveling to anc I will then order them.
