chevyguy8893 When I have more submerged stuff in the future I will let you know also.

Here is a new picture of the plants, not the best shot but it works. I added java moss, limnophila aromatica, rotala rotundifolia, and some HC. I think I may try some of these in a riparium to see how they do.

PlantedTankLover I maybe interested in the future as well, once they are submerged. I'm in Crown Point.

chevyguy8893 Thanks! I actually set up a new tank for most of the plants in that tank, and I got some new humidity domes with single T5HO's for growing some more emersed plants .

I may be able to do something in the future since I do have a bunch of submerged plants growing. They still need to fill in though. Once my sump/refugium is hooked up I will be able to have a place to transition these which is pretty easy with these.

chevyguy8893 Thanks, I am going to be shipping to someone in California, so I will see if it goes well. If it does I may reevaluate shipping the plants in the cold .

Gauging interest in trimmings (NW Indiana)

I have a basic emersed plant setup growing ludwigia repens, moneywort, cryptocoryne wendtii "green", alternanthera reineckii "cardinalis", an amazon sword, and some leftover HC (the last two won't be ready for a long time). All of these have been growing in miracle gro organic choice potting mix. Most were actually in my 20 gallon before it was taken over by BBA. This was the perfect way to salvage the plants that I took out of the tank.

Also, I may have trimmings of brazilian pennywort and regular riccia sometime soon from my 20 gallon. So, I am wondering if there is any local (NW Indiana) interest in any of the trimmings when the time comes. I would have put them up in the sale part of the forum, but I don't want to attempt shipping anything in the cold.

The crypts and alternanthera are from the packages at petsmart. The crypts in the pots have not been put into an aquarium yet. Depending on how many I actually have, I may have some malaysian trumpet snails if there is interest. It is hard to count them since they aren't out often. So, if anyone is interested, let me know. I have put the alternanthera and crypts in my tank, and so far the transition hasn't effected them (pressurized CO2 and EI dosing). Here's some pictures of the plants I have.

The riccia is on the suction cup shelf

Here are the crypts a week after starting them, now 5-6 weeks in. I started with two pots with two plants, and they it is now 1 pot per plant. They are starting to run out of room again.
