PLEASE! Don't throw away plants folks!
New to this forum, but I've been in the hobby for almost 50 years, the last 12 have been knee-deep in saltwater. I just tore down a few of my SW tanks in the fishroom with the firm intent of getting to about a 60% FW and 40% FW mix by summertime.
My first FW tank just got filled with water, the cycle starts this weekend, and I just put the first few plants in there yesterday. There's a 180G peninsula in the family room with access from the fishroom that's getting filled with water over the next week, and I'll be building my own tanks to replace the SW tanks I removed. Yes, it's been busy to say the least, and with family stuff of immense proportions in the last year, it's been slooooowwww progress.
I have two kids in college in Philly at the moment and since it seems like a good number of you are from that area, please don't throw away plants! You'll have a ready and willing buyer in the near future. My son plays baseball so I'll be down there on a pretty regular basis in March, April and into May.
I've been away from the FW side of the hobby altogether for about 12 years so be gentle, lol! I'll certainly be picking some brains here.
