Yea, I'm about a half mile past mcdade blvd on 420. Thanks for the offer though. I'll think of a way to make it work.

hey fishies in philly, r u still living in Far NE (chalfont)?
i can probably give them a good home. setting up my daughter's tank tomorrow. i'm still in the ne, tacony. haven't lived in your area in about 20 years....lol

Anybody want a de-rimmed 2.5g setup? Comes with 13w cfl and red sea nano filter plus nano diffuser. Cheap sale or trade for plants.

Haha...it would be sweet to have some blue pearls but the more I think about it, I dunno if I should haha. I got cherries in my 30 planted and the only other tanks running right now are my 75 and a 20L. The 75 has SAE and tons of java and the 20L is just set up barebottom with about 3 feet of anubias rhizome that came from a guy breaking down his tank and it was in bad shape. I heard on here that SAE like to eat shrimp?

I guess I'll just take the crypts and let someone else grab them from you since I wouldn't give them my full attention. Unless I set up a tank here at school and risk getting caught once again hahaha

oh, forgot to mention. malawa won't interbreed with any other shrimp.

if anyone wants anything out of my 125g, please let me know before the meet. everything is up for grabs, with the exception of my rare crypts. that includes the fish, minus the gbr's and kuhli loaches.

Depends what was in your 125... Did you post it in this thread somewhere? I'll take a look.

Does anyone want DHG, Microsword, Ludwigia Red or a ton of Rotala? Don't want to bring it to the meet if no one is interested. Unfortunately I don't have much other than plants I have other common stuff if you need something to get you started.

Here's what I could use if anyone has it:
small HOB filter for a 7.5g - I'm scaping it so I don't want an in-tank filter.
1 or 2 small powerheads for circulation in my plant growout tank.
A few real nice cherries to diversify my genetics.
other decent quality shrimp (pearls, yellows, whatever) 10ish shrimp.
Maybe another small rimless tank if someone has one.

The 125 is mostly crypts.......wendtii, lutea, spiralis, retrospiralis, ciliata, blasii, parva, dwarf sag, a nice sized amazon sword, and 3 apongeton plantlets that i have saved for you dan.
I shoukd have some pearls for you if you want them. I had a major catastrophe with my cherries and malawas and lost almost all of them. I rescued a couple of berried malawas, so hopefully they will be back on track in a few weeks.
