New people yay! Hiiiii! HUGS!

I meant details on ferts, Albert! You guys don't want to hear about how stupid me went back to work too early, lol. You know, AGAIN.

But I am reading the details and ... uh. Because I don't use KNO3 I can't make up the macro solution. Whoops.

I do have extra KH2PO4 and Miller microplex. So, for instance, I can offer 20 or 40 gram packets of the Miller for those who want to try it out instead of CSM+B for trace elements, to be added to 500 mL or 1 L of water (advised to add a little Excel/Metricide or keep in refrigerator to prevent mold). The extra phosphorus can be weighed out for anyone who wants some.

Flo (is that right?), if you're talking about the powdered calcium carbonate for reptiles, I use it to raise water hardness. It only makes the water cloudy for a few hours, unless I dump in too much, and even then it's clear by morning. With my particular tap water, it will also raise pH along with KH and GH. So use with caution, but I like it better than adding different KH and GH boosters that will also add sulfates and sodium to my tank. (I am going to try and find a source of potassium bicarbonate, actually, which would be awesome as bicarb seems to get sucked out of my tank like whoa.)

I have one liter bag plus drip line up for grabs, and one 250 mL bag plus drip line. Nice for doing drip acclimation.

From looking at aokashi's beautiful tanks, it's clear to me now that I need more plants. :/ So I am in the market for large quantities of water sprite. It seems to be the one thing that really does well in my goldfish tank, yet is not illegal for me to own.

That's pretty much all I have to offer, other than large quantities of mixed duckweed. Will start pm-spamming peeps whose goodies I want soon!

Celano is selling water sprite. If you work it out with him, let me know and I can pickup ffor you. I'm like a 8 minute drive from him. I think the miller is more interesting to me than CSM+b

I was assuming it would grow quickly, I got some from Matt, too! Not quickly enough. I'm hoping that if I stuff the goldfish tank, it will start sucking up more of the excess nitrogen Dart produces. Got enough to fill a 20 gallon tank? That's roughly the amount I'm looking for ...

Most likely I do. Mostly the broad-leaf version though.

If you left the ferts as dry and put portions into bottles to let everyone add distilled water themselves it would be a lighter load to carry.

I don't have much to offer but here it goes:

- Aqueon 5.5g with a small leak in a corner. It's been subject to the elements for a good year or so. If anyone wants it, feel free to have it. If you want to just pick it up, that's fine too.

- 10 gal tank divider by Penn Plax, box included.

- Marina .5 betta bowl w/ one Nutrafin package of Betta flakes, Nutrafin Betta plus, Betta Plus water treatment.

** If anyone does/is interested in oil painting, I have A LOT of supplies. PM me for those.


Nico approves, I think.

Too late I mixed it already. And plus its too complicated to divide kitty's proportions into little 4 oz bottles

Also it will be more accurate to once the powders are in solution, you're not guaranteed an even distribution when you mix solids. I will leave mine dry since it is not a mixture.

I am getting water sprite from celaeno via Albert, but will gladly pick up more. Then I can do the same to the shrimp tank and the quarantine tub. Hmm, I should find some KMnO4 ... otherwise they will get bleach dipped and I hate monkeying with bleach.
