Hah, I knew I forgot something - the green water! Oh well.
Bleached all the plants in one bucket. Note to self: do it in batches, the floaters got hopelessly mixed up with squashed bits of plants.
Grand donation total for the New York Aquarium: $189! Seriously! This rocked. Thanks everyone for donating stuff, bidding, and Albert for doing the talking, which I fail at. I will send it along shortly.
I have way too many plants now, I cannot thank you guys enough. I'm gonna use my .5 gals to keep them alive since I have enough stems and floaters to decorate my tank thrice. My betta (Wisp) is in love with the moss. He's using the java as a hammock. The MTS have already buried themselves and will probably be lost in there forever. My turtle loved the brine shrimp. She was VERY content afterwards.
It was nice seeing you all again. I had fun at the auction and got some great deals on some IAL and a sponge filter. For those of you who are interested, I should have emersed grown HC, Hydrocotyle sp Japan, and more DHG belem available at the next meet with some other plants.
