I'm hoping to have a tank setup by the meet. I'm planning on getting a 25cm cube for my betta. It's going to be low tech. Looking for the following plants. E. tennelus
dwarf sag
Some kind of small crypt(suggestions beside parva)
And maybe some rotala and ludwigia red.
Keeping it really simple, no hard scape.

That's it for now. In late February, I'll probably be setting up a high tech tank with HC. But that won't be for awhile.

I'm sorry I don't have anything to trade as far as plants. I may bring some equipment but I have to go through my stuff and see. Still in boxes.

Now lets hope in not working that day!

Forgot to ask, is it ok if I bring my kid (only 1) to this. No one is drinking heavy or gets overbearing (other than me) right?

I see lots of peeps I don't recognize, so I'm throwing this out there: if anybody has brilliant ideas for goldfish proof plants that do well in low light without supplemental carbon dioxide, suggest away and I will buy.

Stuff she has eaten:
Pennywort
Vallisneria
Duckweed
Water lettuce
Water sprite
Hygroryza
Hornwort
Emersed plant roots

I do not think she actually ate the salvinia or frogbit, but both did very poorly in the tank.

Stuff that is sort of working:
Java fern (under attack from algae, I could use more)
Moss
Anubias (melting! Ack!)
Cryptocoryne wendtii
Marimo balls

P.S. edited post of stuff for peeps on page 2 holler if I missed you since apparently I don't always notice PMs!

Not a problem as I bought my 4 year old last year to one of our warmer meets. Just be mindful of the cold temps tho.

Hi Em, i have large water sprite that i'd like to give you. I gave most of my duckweed to flo a week ago but pm me if you want some. I suspect there is a bba problem in your tank that will need to be addressed. We can discuss offline.

Giant salvinia (Salvinia oblongifolia)
Asian watermoss (Salvinia cucullata)
Pellia (Monosolenium tenerum)
Hydrocotyle sibthorpioides (this is what it was sold to me as - the leaves have slightly larger lobes then what I see in pics - but I am not growing it with CO2)

I may also have some other cuttings by that time.

Other items:

Manzanita log (~8" long x 3" diameter - give or take) - can snap a pic if someone wants to see it
10" pair of tweezers (wider ends - 1/4" or so, not pincer type) - they are a little stiff - but may break in.
Bag of "natural looking", brown aquarium gravel
I could also start a couple of microworm starter cultures

Looking for:

Brazilian micro sword (Lilaeopsis brasiliensis)
Ammania sp. 'Bonsai'
Assassin snails
Duckweed
Tiger shrimp (wild type - nothing fancy)
New feeders or food for nano fish
Added quite a few things to my list (both wanted and available). PM me if you want/have anything.
