    Hey Tom I was wondering if you sell your plants in smaller portions. Would like a mixture of these plants:

    Rotala Mini Butterfly
    potamogeton amplifolius
    Red pantanal

    Also if you have any of these:
    tonina lotus blossoms
    Red Ludwigia

    Please let me know

    Hi Tom,

    I am new to the forum and was brought here by a few members of some other forums and by some friends from an LFS here in Toronto. I have an 80 gallon tank that I have been trying to perfect and has been suggested to me that the addition of some driftwood would be good. I have been reading this forum today and have noticed that people have been ordering box sets of Manzanita wood from you. I have no idea where to source this kind of wood here in Toronto and wondering if you could provide me with a decent set of driftwood (15-20 pieces) or if you have any idea where I could find/buy some up here in Canada.

    I would just like to thank you so much for your great contribution of knowledge and skill to this hobby/aquatic world and helping to live on the dream of Mr. Amano. Hope to hear from you soon!

    Hi Mr. Barr. I'm sensitive to the fact that you must get bombarded with questions owing to your expertise in the hobby. I feel like I've looked everywhere though and I'm just hoping you can help. I'm looking for some lava rock that's more or less columnar in shape. You seem to have access to some crazy hardscape materials and have even journal'd a 60P with more or less the kind of rock I'm after. Do you have idea where I can source this kind of thing? Otherwise I'm stuck endlessly searching Ebay for someone selling an occasional piece along these lines. Thanks man! I'm grateful for any help!

    Hey Tom, Im currently making a 120gal planted tank and I'm stuck on the lighting. it 24" high, I'm have a light fixture that hold 6 T8 bulbs (of various types and colours) and also incorporating 6 T5's within that setup (also various types and colours). what lighting system and setup do you have with your 120?

    Hello Tom,
    I'm interested in your driftwood after seeing it featured on several other people's tank journals. Is there any chance I can see them or something?

    The 45 $ box is just a representative sample, it is not those specific pieces. Ship is included there, shipping is not included in the other items. That will add to the cost.

    Thank you for the info. So if I understand correctly, I can choose a $45.00 box which will include assorted pieces AND shipping OR I can look at the individual pieces you have displayed and then I would pay the price listed AS WELL as shipping? The very fist picture is representative of a $45.00 box and the remaining pictures are the individual pieces for sale, right?
