I am interested in the CBS if you still have them, and I live in austin proper. Let me know if you would like to meet!

MikeWalker what part of town are you in?

Mike Hawk Alright, good luck with the sale man, take care.

Edit: I have 4 erio parkeri's if you change your mind.

larryvt I have a few tanks (3-10's and a 20) with shrimp and they are pretty much loaded with plants. After looking around, I don't know what I would do with another plant. The shrimp seem to like moss as well as anything.
It looks like I have 5-6 mature CBS and at least as many CRS that I would like to cull. Not sure how to post pics but I will try tomorrow. These shrimp are a minimum grade A/S and I would like to get $3 ea. I think I could ship for about $8.

dunehole If you have any left after your trade, I would take some as well.

Mike Hawk Thanks chibi, on a side note i can include photos of the plants if you like.

thechibi Poor lil guys. Well. All yours. I totally understand how sad that is.

Mike Hawk yea it took 8 days for the fenbendazole to come in the mail, in those 8 days i lost over 50% of my crystals. leaving me with 2 CBS and 8 CRS, it was a sad week.
06-01-2012 03:52 AM
thechibi Curses! :P Hehe, no worries. Poor crystals. Maybe you need them more than I do. I'll wait, I think.

Mike Hawk would you accept some Eriocaulon parkeri as a trade for the shrimp? they sell from 7-11$ each. They are a great plant and are the only Eriocaulon sp. that does not need Co2 to live, they can live in medium light, root fertilizers are a plus as they are heavy rooters. I also have one downoi plant and a few stems of ludwigia sp. red plant if your interested but those do like high light, co2 and fertilizers. I live in central austin so i can get to all of austin. Let me know if you want to trade and how many plants you want i have a few. My Crystal got some hydra a few weeks ago from a plant seller and i lost a good bit of my stock so this would be great. Anyways let me know if you want to trade Thanks, take care.

Edit: here is a list of plants i got up for trade and my value on them. the prices are on the very cheap side, I paid over 25% more for them ea.

Ludwigia repons 5 stems .75$ ea, I paid 1$ea
ludwigia sp. red "hybrid" 3 stems 2$ ea, I paid 3$ea
erio parkeri 2 plants 8$ ea, I paid 11$ ea
Downoi 1 plant ROOTED 7$, I paid 10$ ea
water sprite 1 big bush 10" tall 3$ Cant remember what i paid
stargrass 5 stems .50$ ea, I paid 1$ ea

I don't know how much you value your CBS & CRS at but this is just a ruff guide on what i value the plants at. let me know what you want and maybe we can work up a deal. Thanks.
