Wow, this thread has been going on a long time, lol. Just registered, but have lurked a bit as I'm starting to seriously get into plants over this winter. Well, okay still low tech, low-medium light but wishing...
I'm in New Auburn. About halfway between Eau Claire and Rice Lake. Work in Rice Lake, so I don't get down to Eau Claire that often. Neither place has much for plants.
Of the two, Pets for You and Tropic Waters are about equal for knowledge, I guess. But Tropic Waters has a better fish selection. Pets has slightly better prices, but it's really small. And not much at all for plants. I asked about getting Flourite sand in black, and he couldn't even find it on the supplier list!
Anyway, nothing to trade at the moment except maybe 6 stems of bacopa monnieri, but it has some red algae (or whatever, not good at IDing plants or algae, lol). Getting some amano shrimp this week, so hopefully they and Excel will help me banish it.
