Does anyone have any extra scuds or walter worms they can sell me? Or trade? I have daphnia monia or Pogostemon stellatus to trade.

You never got back to my pm. I thought you didn't want to sell or trade anymore?

I don't have enough moss to trade right now.

Anyone else have scuds?

Pardon me I know I am very late to this thread. I finally read everything and I didn't at first because I didn't really expect being able to make it to these meets. My schedule is hectic lately but after reading this I want to try to make it.

As to the topic of the meeting, I have been using EI ferts and PPS pro for a few years now. I am not using a different method where it is a hybrid inbetween both where I no longer need to do water changes. I haven't changed the water all year. I would love to discuss some of my findings if you let me.

@Fuze, use a digital bathroom scale and weigh yourself before and after holding the ferts. It works for me. I have a milligram scale but I don't think it would work for lbs. but it will work if you need to scale out for PPS.

@congee, please do bring some green water with you. If you don't mind I would like a sample and I wanted to see under a microscope to what species you have. I want to see what native single cell algae NY has. Also I can lend you my UV sterilizer. Its moded so you don't need to attach it to your filter. Its a hang on UV unit.

I have microworms if anyone needs. I can give out a few starters. Only catch is that in case if I lose my culture in the future, I may need your sub culture. lol

I have these to trade,

Pogostemon stellatus
Cabomba furcata
Eichhornia diversifolia
Limnophila aromatica
Start cultures of
vinegar eels
daphnia moina
grindal worms

I am looking for scuds/gammarus specifically the one that grows 1/2" or larger.
walter worms
banana worms
briggs/mystery snails
tonias or any red plants
And of course, I'll pay if I don't have the things you like to trade for.

Hope to meet you guys in person

No water changes huh? Interesting...

I actually don't have a bathroom scale, looks like I will be eyeballing. I will probably bring the whole thing and just part it out to people, I now have 3lbs accounted for.

I know we talked about doing a raffle briefly. Would people be interested in a raffle, proceeds donated to hurricane relief at the NY Aquarium?

Fuze, I have a scale that'll do up to six pounds, but it requires an electrical outlet, and I'm sure people will be more than fine with approximate amounts. By the way, what kind of floaters are you talking about? I love floaters, no planting necessary, hehe.

Before this hobby, floaters had an entirely different connotation. Lol I think the raffle with funds going towards the aquarium is an excellent idea.
