Side note, just got 2 very nice golden dojo loaches from the PetCo on Serene @ Eastern. They're so little; I am looking forward to watching them grow.
I have cobra endlers (not entirely sure how pure my strain is, so most likely hybrid guppies), tons of babies if you want some. Free to a good home if you want! (Please take some!!)

I also have water sprite not a ton, I just sold some and am growing it back out. I can give you a baby node if you want to start growing your own and don't mind waiting (grows fast)

I'd offer some shrimp too, but I'm still building up my population. Btw, if you are thinking of putting the guppies with shrimp, they will eat baby shrimp, and possibly adults.

TeteRouge Last week, TropAquarium had cherry and blueberry (blackberry?) shrimp. Atlantis has cherries sometimes, have also seen bee and black. Call either one up, their staff will know whats in. As an update, as well, Petco on Spring Mtn/Rainbow had its aquatics all redone, and it has sadly suffered, though they still get a few nice things-some of their plakats are beautiful. Enjoy your tanks!

Thanks for the info! I've been considering giving it a look, now I know I will be!

Elppan Blue Reef Aquariums I think it's called in North Las Vegas just increased the size of their freshwater selection, and lowered some of their prices.

toddg Assume F.I.S.H. on Bruce went out of business? Went there Saturday 11-17 and it's now some type of Dollar store. Phone number listed is disconnected. Anything else new in Vegas?

combswillie I vouch for TexTical...I got a lot of plants from him.

TeteRouge Thanks for the offer, texTical

Vermino yeah i just bought from AZgardens (about a week ago) so i'm set.. actually they were supposed to ship dwarf sag but seems like i got a different ID of plant. I have some DHG and flame moss left if you like. If I get my 12gal rimless long I would love to have dwarf water lettuce (love that floater)
07-21-2012 12:04 AM
texTical If any of you guys in vegas want some free plants i usually have a good amount from my 2 small tanks. I just give it to trop aquarium so if you guys want some just hit me up. I usually have a good amount of pennywort, dwarf sag, dwarf water lettuce, subwassertang, christmas tree moss.

im working on HC and repens 49 so ill have clippings from them in a bit. Shoot me a pm if you want some. I do have some snails just fyi on my plants. Got them from some guppy grass i got from someone.

But regardless if you want to meet up ill give you some as i just chuck out a lot of it about every 2 weeks.

It was my first trip to Trop, not really too impressed, prices were pretty high imo. They did have some very nice tanks though for a decent price.


EDIT-UPDATE

Went to the PETCO on N Rainbow today and found some DHG. They actually had a decent selection of plants.
yeah i might need to check out the other PETCO's. I usually don't trust big chain stores because they dont know jack-squat and usually have low quality. Wish the weather would cool it so we can order online
