Anyone in the Orlando/Windemere area?

I thought I'd copy the other two posts and find out who is near Orlando.

I bet, it's a hard landmark to miss haha.

Know any good places around here to pick up some free driftwood for my 125 gal?

Edit: Also trying to get Malaysian trumpet snails.

I have some MTS, not a whole lot though. I have a bowl full of pond snails and there are a couple of MTS in there. Once you get a couple, it is enough to start the cycle of endless snails. I do have a few trapdoor snails I collected locally that I need to rehome since I am breaking down their tank and do not want to overload my other two tanks. No help on the wood, I buy mine on the forums. Hit me up if you are interested though in the snails. I also have a colony of red cherry shrimp that I will start selling in the next few months once I am sure I have enough to continue. I will be doing some trades as well to keep the gene pool diverse so if you are into or consider it let me know.

I live in Palm Coast. About an 1 1/2 hours north of Orlando (a little more from Windermere). If you are ever my way, I can give you some. Them buggers breed like mad, but are hard to fine in the daytime!

Oh easy way to get them out.. I would drop an algae wafer in the front of my tanks and within a half hour you have a roiling mass of snails all trying to get at it.

Hey guys, I am doing some tank maintenance and collected a bunch of really nice floaters.. eared watermoss and another type which is tank grown 2nd generation stuff. The original eared I picked up from a forum member and the other water moss I collected at the springs last spring and has grown nicely and multiplied. I let it grow out of control for six months then pull a bunch out and let the cycle repeat. Really easy stuff to maintain, the fish like hiding under it and the shrimp forage in it all the time. Let me know if you are interested, it's free you just have to pick it up. It's the dirt tank in my sig and is super healthy all natural, no chems or ferts added so nothing to be worried over.
