Joon, Most floating plants do better with less water flow. So if you have sponge filter tanks (which I know you do) that's a great place to grow floaters. Sometimes Water Lettuce will melt pretty bad when you transfer it from tank to tank. I've no luck shipping it so I stopped trying. If it melts all it takes is one piece to survive and you'll have more than you know what to do with shortly. No special care is needed. The more nutrients you have in the water, the longer the roots will grow.

Friend of mine went to Reef today. He said they have CPDs in stock if anybody is looking for an amazing nano fish. $7/each which isn't a terrible price. I might run over there Wednesday and hope they have some. My male died before I had a chance to breed them. Left with 3 females...

Yep...just give it light and nutrients and it will spread like duckweed. In my opinion it's not picky at all. But like Joe said...sometimes the output of the hang on back filters pushes it around too much and causes it to flip over but if you have the water line all the way to the top then the current just pushes it around.

Also, most of the microsword (macrosword? It got pretty tall emersed...) and 3/4's of the DHG is up for grabs (container with both is 15"x10").

And 3/4 of the HM (5"x8" container).

I'm basically just keeping enough for myself to start new trays.

Not sure who all was at the meet - send me a PM with what you want and i'll split it up as evenly as I can between everyone who wants it.

Please let me know by Wednesday night if possible. I may ship Thursday. Friday at latest.
just dropped the packages in the mail for those who wanted something. let me know if they arrive ok.
