When I went last, they had 2 10 gallon tanks with plants. Most of them were crap, but I got lucky and found an anubias nana for only 3 bucks in perfect condition. I imagine they just got it in and it was in the tank for less than a couple days. I considered telling them to stock more plants, but I was in a rush to leave and get home. So it's either going to be hit or miss when you get there as far as plants go. I'm definitely going to get another large piece of driftwood from there though. I believe it was $6 per pound for the driftwood. I want to get another large piece for my 75 gallon tank. I imagine it will be around $40-50 dollars, but that's reasonable for a huge piece that would fit in a tank that large. The wood is clean and sinks within a few days.

Chomped, I live in NJ, not far from CC. If you don't find what you want, I have some nice big and small driftwood. How big is your tank?

i'm looking for some pencilfish Mortenthali (red Coral). If anyone has any, let me know. I might be willing to part with my School (14) full grown white tip Rosy's. (Pink with red fins tipped in white with the shape of black phantom tetras)

Also, I want to give away 3 gold dust Mollies (1M,2F) that i used for algae control...i just hate mollies and regret having them.

Does $30 sounds fair? I believe it's mopani and it has lots of characters on the other side (good for attaching plants). This is a very heavy piece (not the typical wood that requires soaking to sink or deteriorate over time)

I have lots of other pieces as well. Pictures here.. some are sold (honestely can't remember which)
