I missed the part about the Betta

In addition to that, I guess I filled the tank up waaaay too high, because I had 4 fish jump out in two days. I sent out a search and rescue team but only recovered two bodies. The cats got the other two.

drewsuf82 I'm ready for some baby bn if they still need good homes

psych If you're willing to ship some of that wisteria I'll gladly take it off your hands. PM me if you are and we can set something up?
01-21-2013 08:11 PM
Sandz To bad you don't want to ship. I would take as many as you could get in a flat rate over to me. I have plenty of tank space for BN's. PM me if you end up considering the option. I would take any and all remaining so its 1 shipment and done.

I have one or two sprigs of wisteria left and a decent amount of crypts (bronze variety). There might be a few tiny shoots of green crypts also.

I have a 10 gallon full of baby BN plecos, varying in size from microscopic to nearly full grown. I'll be around this weekend if somebody wants to make plans to grab plants and/or fish.

GraphicGr8s - yup, they're happy in the new tank.

I just took 95% of my wisteria and a lot of crypts over to Marine Warehouse, so I don't have much left. Let me see how much I'll need to stock the new tank and you can have what I don't or won't need.

I kinda doubt it, I'm hoping to have everything moved into the new tank and decommission the old one by then.
