why don't you get some crypts at the next aquarium meeting, let me double check this (it's my first time going), it's September 2nd at 7:00? and at Kuhio Elementry School? Can someone please give me their site with the directions

When in doubt, take it out!

Won't be making the meeting AGAIN, but I was planning on sending some plants with a friend. I got some wendtii floating around and some varieties of Java fern too. I got some extra Tonina and Eriocaulon to dispose of too. If you treat them right, they will grow in low light conditions...

Zach,

I got some extra Cryptocoryne beckettii "petchii" sitting in one of my tanks if you like. It doesn't grow very big or fast for that matter. It gets maybe two inches in lenght if you are lucky. It's color is sort of olive green maybe with a little more tan color. If you want some and are going to the meeting, let me know ahead of time so I can bring it.

Zach,
here's a list of plants that I have collected here on Oahu:

Vallisneria sp.
Sagittaria sp.
Echinodorus sp.
Ceratophyllum demersum
Najas sp.
Anacharis
Riccia fluitans
Bacopa monnieri
Ludwigia palustris
various unknown mosses
Riccardia sp.
Hydrocotyle verticilliata
Hydrocotyle sibthorpioides
Ceratopteris thallictroides
marsilea villosa

There is a native Potamogeton that is supposed to be really nice but I have never been able to find it.

There are lots of floaters too but who wants those?

Sorry but I sold all of my extra Toninas ans Eriocaulons for now. I am sure that T. sp. Belem will make an appearance at the auction though.

Seriously (ahem) -- is there a HAS meeting this Friday (9/2/05)? I should probably go, and pay my renewal, even though I only show up once every year or two.

Eheim Pimp #70!

20G long: dwarf cichlids, sparkling gouramis, and a couple of kuhli loaches. 2 x 24W T5, DIY CO2, Eheim 2213.

Well Mr fishy, I think with your pimp'n skills you'll manage. We had our share of shady characters at PP when I worked there too...

There is a meeting this friday but it's going to be pretty boring. I suggest waiting for October, I here the program is going to be pretty interesting and the guy who is doing it is cool too

In all seriousness, if you do go to the meeting tomorrow, the board is going to have the membership vote on whether or not we are going to have an annual show. They are being really pessimistic about it and I fear they are going to sway the club into voting against it, which would be a shame. I don't really want to go into more detail but if you do attend the meeting, please vote YES for the annual show.

And regarding the Dicrossus, keep them with softer water as it makes all the difference. Using ADA aquasoil or Red Sea Florabase works wonders in softening our water here.

Sorry Zach for hijacking and pulling the thread off topic.

no worries, i have hijacked many of thread in my time here.

Does this mean I have to wait to get clippings from the auction for another month, or is there an auction every month?
If you ever feel like going collecting give me a hollar. I always need some more time underwater.

I went to the HAS meeting for my first time, I was the new blonde white kid, I didn't get anything but after the meeting someone was nice enough to give me a Tonina as soon as I got home, I put it into a .25 gallon betta bowl, and put over it 27 watts of light it'll be staying in that until my 20gallon tank is up and running

When in doubt, take it out!

Hey aanderson09,

I must admit, you did stick out like a ! Just kidding . Next time I see you I will introduce myself. I saw you bidding on a couple items with a blue junoir plate if I am not mistaken. Does this mean that you joined the club?

The same goes for you. If you ever want any plants that I may have, just let me know.
