And 3/4 of the HM (5"x8" container).

I'm basically just keeping enough for myself to start new trays.

Not sure who all was at the meet - send me a PM with what you want and i'll split it up as evenly as I can between everyone who wants it.

Please let me know by Wednesday night if possible. I may ship Thursday. Friday at latest.
just dropped the packages in the mail for those who wanted something. let me know if they arrive ok.

The more nutrients you have in the water, the longer the roots will grow.
Yep...just give it light and nutrients and it will spread like duckweed. In my opinion it's not picky at all. But like Joe said...sometimes the output of the hang on back filters pushes it around too much and causes it to flip over but if you have the water line all the way to the top then the current just pushes it around.

GitMoe Friend of mine went to Reef today. He said they have CPDs in stock if anybody is looking for an amazing nano fish. $7/each which isn't a terrible price. I might run over there Wednesday and hope they have some. My male died before I had a chance to breed them. Left with 3 females...

John, if you didn't already figure it out, we take care of our local folks. if you need tank stuff, one of us probably has it, and will hook you up. i mean look, steve was so kind as to give me a huge case of herpes!!! (duckweed) LOL
Hahaha...I didn't have time to pick out each piece of dwarf lettuce so I just scooped the top layer of my tank instead. No doubt I'll have it covered with dwarf lettuce and duckweed again in a couple weeks.

jreich i really apreciate the generosity of every one at the meet, everything that was given to me looks great, the plants filled in many of the empty spots in my tank, and the tank looks great again. I love my cpo's, seem very healthy. Yea gitmoe atleast u didnt have to drive home with that pitcher in your lap in that crazy rain. Glad all your pasangers made it thru the trip. Hopefully next time around i will have something decent to offer to the group besides my good looks. But i think the meet went well, it was nice to be able to talk about the hobby to people that didnt just look at you funny and have no clue what your talking about. I enjoyed myself, it was nice to get out. Thanks again every one!

No problem. I've got no room at the moment anyway

ThinkTank Hey Guys,
Very sorry I didn't make it to the meet.
I'd still like to give the plants I was going to bring to everyone who showed. I'm going to find some big padded envelopes and sent everything to you guys regular mail. Should be fine since we're all in the area. I'll ship at the end of the week at my expense (only a buck or so a package).
I know Bill wants DHG and a Cardinal Plant. Joe - DHG and Microsword....not sure if anyone else wanted anything.
I'm doing a big trim tonight or tomorrow and i'll post a pic of the stems I want to get rid of as well.

If you were at the meet send a PM with what you want and your address.

@Moon - I know you didn't make it to the meet but this is open to you as well.
