What plants are you looking for I might have something after a trimming soon. I've got RCS on the way from a TPT user next week. I hope to breed them, but that wont help you now.

Mainly looking for something that can be used as a background plant. I am looking to replace my vals. But am always looking for something cool.

If you don't mind me asking, who'd you get the shrimp from?

I've got 50 RCS on the way from Johnny313! I just got a few stems of giant hygro for my 55, among a random assortment I just picked up this morning. I've been trying to get my Cryptocoryne Balansae to fill out, I know a guy at my lfs that has a bunch of it in one of his tanks, he is bringing me a couple nice plants tomorrow. I've also got a few stem plants that need trimming soon, I can let you know when I do that.

So I know it's been a bit, I totally forgot to let you know how the RCS worked out. They all arrived alive, well packaged, most pretty small. Now that they've had some time to grow they are all still doing well and have colored up very nicely! I've now got 4 or 5 females , at least, berried.

Did you ever find any tall plants? or Shrimp?

Hey, I did finally get 20 from a guy on here and they're doing really well. We're still waiting on the females to berry as it should be very soon. I'm not sure who's is more impatient me or my son...lol

I never have found the tall plants. Do you have anything?
