Breaking down tanks soon - free plants

See the latest update on my journal for the story.here -->

I will be forced to tear down two tanks. I want to show my thanks to the people of tpt and the new york aquatic family. So I want to give away my plants. No room where im staying right now to start anything new. My tanks are sort of in stasis right now. blacked out and cold. but amazingly the plants are doing ok. list of plants include,
Rotala Rotundofolia
various crypts, most wendtii and petchii
dwarf sag
jungle val
bacopa caroliniaa
moss mixed with suberwassertang
some ludwigia red
frogbit and duckweed
some blyxa too if its not in bad shape...have to see


Ideally I would like to get rid of all of it at the same time. between work and all the things I have going on with my place I will not have time to meet different people for a few plants. I can meet you anywhere during the week or you can pick it up this weekend after Saturday in sheepshead bay. Im just looking to put the place in a new home I would hate to throw everything out.

thank again

oh dear
maybe someone can pick up the plants from you and divide amongst everyone..

We'll be sure to give your plants back to you when you are ready for more tanks again!

no, that was Bluek24(edit: guess I'm the one with the bad memory >.>)

I think we can get someone (like jellie?) who has a large tank and car to pick it up... and whoever wants plants can share the price of fuel...? and pick the plants up later.

Joe, I would be interested in your crypts. If I can keep them going well till you get your tanks back I can then give you crypts back when you're ready.

Mike, if you are closer, maybe you can pick up the whole lot for joe and meet up with everyone else?

I should have room for most of what you have Joe, but I dont know what I will be able to keep alive for a long time since its a low light low tech tank.

Frrok, I am sending you and all others affected by the storm good vibes.

It is so inspiring to see your graciousness during a difficult time.

Many blessings to you, and all of NYAPS!
