After neglecting my 125, I have decided to finally put some work into it now that my work schedule is stabilized. I'm looking for some grassy plants to complete the natural look of the tank. I'm looking for anything tall and grass like. Val's, C. Spiralis or c. Retrospiralis, cyperus helferi.

I'm also in search of some stems. Preferably 12" or longer cuttings. The tank is currently black water, but I'm filtering out the tannins, so the cuttings need to be tall until the tannins are gone.

I'm still around. I started a pair of vivariums that are growing in nicely. They're much easier to care for with my new job schedule and wife's endless house projects lol

I have a pair of juvenile Amazon swords that are just suffering in my 125. You are more than welcome to them. And if there's anything in the tank you like that needs trimming, I'll throw those in as well. I am in the northeast, Tacony section
