Fishies_in_Philly If anyone is interested in expanding into the dart frog hobby, my collection of darts is also up for sale. Pm me for details on those.

Also, my 125 is available for the right offer. [emoji3]

midlife_hobbyist I will try not to be too obnoxious promoting our non-profit club but if no one claims, you could donate to the club auction which is this Saturday May 14.

I'd think either or both (fish/lotus) would go well. If interested, let me know and I possibly could pick up if you cannot attend.

I keep pencilfish (not sure which species) but my 29 is fully stocked. They're great fish....Far more personality than I originally thought.

mastro Does anyone else here keep pencilfish? I have 2 male brown pencilfish (Nannostomus eques) that I'm looking to rehome. I purchased a large group from the Aquarium Center about 3.5 years ago as adults. The group has been passing slowly over the past year and a half, and our last female recently died. Since then, one of the males has become aggressive and has caused some damage to the other's nose and caudal fin. I'd ideally like them to go into another a group of pencils, which I think would mellow the aggressive one.

I also have a large tiger lotus if anyone is interested.

Limejoker Looks for shrimp and/or snails. Prefer MTS but still debating which ones. Looking for a local pick up. PM if anyone has anything for sale/trade. Thanks

themetalchurch I'd give Worldwide Aquarium & Pets in roxborough, they may buy from private breeders

On that note, if anyone local has peppered corys they're trying to get rid of give me a shout. Looking for a crew of 3-4 to keep my guys company.

German Blue Rams available

Hi all,

This is my first post on the forum, but I am a long time lurker. I was wondering if anyone would be interested in purchasing some german blue rams that I have been breeding. I got the parents from a quality breeder about a year ago and I am currently exploding with fry. I have hundreds of them all the way from wigglers to 4 month old juveniles. I am located in Chester County, but I frequently visit both Delaware and Lancaster Counties as well. I'm not sure if I'm willing to ship them; I would prefer a local buyer. Is anyone interested in a pair (or a few) or does anyone know of a LFS in the area that will buy from a private breeder? Thanks. I can post pictures of the parents with fry if anyone is interested.

Fishies_in_Philly Yay! Lol

Btw, I will have some rotalas, some alternanthera, ludwigia, and downoi to give away at the meet.

Fishies_in_Philly Very cool. Brad, I may take that light off your hands. I still have those 2 24" tanks that need building.

themetalchurch I'm definitely planning on stopping by for a bit, I have that 24" planted+ and a Aqueon 100w adjustable heater I'm planning on bringing.

marley77 I think you can put Roxanne and I as a tentative yes for Sunday. I say tentative as she is traveling this week on business. We do plan on stopping by though.

That water lettuce you gave me has exploded. I have about a 12" x 12" section with deep 2-3" roots someone can have. I also might have a few assorted stems as well.

I have a spare AC 70 and a Fluval 305 canister I haven't used in a couple years. need to see if it still works.

Fishies_in_Philly Hey folks, since the swap meet is scheduled for this upcoming Sunday, I was hoping to get a rough head count so I know how many refreshments I need to buy.

Also, if you are attending and have equipment or similar you are bringing to unload, post it so people can get an idea of what will be available.

Fishies_in_Philly Same here. I had my wife holding boxes while I used my phone flashlight to read labels. Lol I'm glad I did that though. It gave me the opportunity to see which ones were brown.

The Trigger Wow was in there today and noticed them too. It was so dark back there I could barely read the packages. i would have picked up some UG if I had a high tech tank to put it in lol
