These are one of the few types i have never kept so i'm open to these. I have a lot to look forward to tomorrow. Youre a gem Julie.

Though they werent born in my tank. I'm looking to raise these to adulthood. I guess the one from Matt are growing up and im just afraid of the empty nest syndrome. I"ll pack you up some extra plants and some food packs if time allows. Tomorrow morning's going to be insanely busy.

Hope you get well soon Matt.

If you are there midday, a few of us will be meeting at the Essex Street market for a meal. Its on Essex street between Delancy St & Rivington. Its going to be on the Northside of Delancy if that helps any but remember to bring my number. I'll ring you if i dont hear from you by 1:30.

Updated 9:30 pm Friday evening:

Things I am planning to bring:
Aquaclear 50 for Viva
KMnO4, 10ml syringe, spirulina powder for xev
used flourite for xev and aokashi
3, 5, 10 ml syringes for szenic
Lots of powdered stuff, 3 gallon tank, syringe + spray needle for Albert
New Life Spectrum Thera A 1 mm sinking pellets - I forget who wanted these, but I will bring several baggies.
Syringes for lots of people - Please try to remember to ask me for them, because otherwise I will forget. (Do you see a trend here?)

Up for grabs (free if no price listed):
Potassium permanganate, $1 for a baggie
Potassium bicarbonate
Potassium sulfate
Monopotassium phosphate
Miller microplex trace element mix
Calcium carbonate
Spirulina powder

Shopping list (wanted):
Aquarium silicone
Large sword plants (Echinodorus)
Java fern
Elodea canadensis (yes, I am weird)
More duckweed, the goldfish is hungry

I'm still not sure when I'll actually arrive, but now it's looking like I'll have the day off other than bunny sitting morning and evening.

Hey aokashi....can I jump on some of that susswassertang? I know it's last minute, but checking out my tank I just realized I can put that to use!

Here's my list of what I am bringing:
eeng168 - Ken's flake food
aokashi - MTS
jellie - MTS
szenic - Ken's flake, veggie sticks, betta crumble and veggie/algae wafers
homemadepopcorn - red cherry shrimp
acitydweller - endlers

I'm probably bringing extra baggies of different Ken's foods....so if anyone is interested tomorrow just check with me.

See you guys tomorrow! And if I left anyone off or if someone wants something else, just let me know. I'll be checking in throughout the night and tomorrow morning. My post is on page 1, minus the red cherries and endlers. I may also have more MTS besides what I am already bringing.

Does anyone have any assassin snails? Matt was going to bring me some, but since he unfortunately can't make it - looking for another source.


Also, I might have 3 Microdevario nana available. I lost a number due to jumping - and I am still working on getting a tank lid. I might try to pick up a less jumpy species from Frank. If interested let me know, and I can bring them tomorrow if it turns out that is my best option.

That's totally fine with me! Not sure if I'll be tying to mesh or driftwood, but either way any size portion will do.

Thanks a bunch!
