Anyone have high grade cherry shrimps? Looking to start a nano tank with cherries, pygmy cories, and other schooling nano fish that wont eat the baby shrimp.

Also looking for the following plants to start up another tank:

Hygro Augustifolia(willow hygro)
Jungle vals, prefer gigantea, but I'd be happy with anything really.
Water sprite or Wisteria

Can pay or trade for equipment/tanks/plants. I currently have anubias and dwarf chain sword to trade.

Hey guys,

I'm looking to do a big revamp of my 20 long. If anyone is interested I am pulling a few stems of Limnophila aromatica , Bacopa Carolina , Wysteria , Ludwigia Repens (I Think), a softball sized java moss, and a very healthy red dwarf lily.

I am also looking to re-home 6 rummynose, 10 neon tetras, and 2 albino bristenose plecos.

All plants and fish are free. I can include pictures of the tank or any of the individual plants or fish tonight.

I'd like to arrange a West Philly (near Upenn) exchange for an evening this week.

Thanks,

Bill

Hey bill,

If you have no takers on this by the weekend, I'll take the fish and plants. I have plenty of room in the 125 and i'm looking to improve it. But i won't be available until Sunday.

Brand Spankin' New - In need of an aquarium

Hi Guys,

I am not only new to the forum, I am fairly new to planted aquarium. I started with a 5 gallon aquarium with a betta fish, but added 3 ghost shrimp and started planting the small 5 gallon with 9 plants. I really enjoy doing this. And my kids also love taking care of something like this. So... I am ready for the big league.

I Don't have a big budget, but around $100 to start a 55 gallon planted aquarium.

Is there anyone willing to sell their aquarium with all the furnishings for around $100? Maybe you are moving and need to get rid of the aquarium real quick?

Please PM me if you have a decent setup. I am not in a hurry, but looking for a good deal to fit my budget; so even if you read this message after 3 months, I might still be looking for one.

Thanks!

So Moseschi1 and I are working out a time/place to give him the plants.

Bill, If you want the fish I am around Sunday. Maybe we can meet halfway on Columbus/95 somewhere?

I'd be willing to donate some old penguin style HOB filters for the new guy. Only get on here so often, but I'll check my message box over the next few days. I'm located in Roxborough/Manayunk area.

Dropped off the stems and fish with Bill Sunday. Thanks again Bill. Now I need an inspiration for my new cory/oto/RCS tank. Time to dig through the tank journals.

Hey, thank you. The plants are acclimating nicely, and the fish are playing all over the tank

There were some gorgeous tanks in the aga competition last year.

I have some greater and lessor duckweed available to anyone who wants it My goal is to separate the greater from the lessor so it's manageable in my tanks. Currently it's mixed together. Also willing to part with a handful of stems of water sprite plants about 8 inches in height.

Free to those who want it. Would be interested in Java moss as a trade if you had some.
