KingPlakat I'm looking for hygrophila people! Anyone have some? Preferably willow or regular temple. Need something that grows fast that can populate the back corners of my tank. I bought some willow hygro in its emersed form but it's not shooting off yet. I'm impatient haha I'd just like to fill it all in now instead of waiting for it to grow and split the stems.

I may have a couple. Do you have any Red Cherry Shrimp you'd be willing to trade for them?

If I remember correctly that fish place had a ton when I was last there. 2 weeks ago, but they did have a ton. You can call and ask if they have them in stock before making the drive. When I bought an apistogramma once I called to see if they had em and they went and checked for me first.

Aquarium Center in Clementon NJ has Assasin Snails sometimes. I bought a few from there.

I know its a bit of a drive, but I know some of the Petcos in the Lehigh Valley carry some.
Their price matching policy can also potentially make it worth the drive.

The more you get the better they shoal. I started with 30, then bumped it up to 45. I also noticed after I do a water change and turn AC70 filter off they really school very well. I think they don't like much current in the tank. Just enough to the keep water moving. Same thing with the angels I have in the tank. I have a canister filter running with a spray bar which stays on. The HOB is just for extra filtration, but I don't think the fish appreciate it. I may look into adding another large canister filter on there to replace the HOB.

If you mean small small, then I still have that toms rapids mini. I just got transferred to the Kensington Office of my job. Should be interesting haha I'll hope on 95 and come up one of these days for another swap meet if we can rally the troops. I'm looking for some willow hygro to use as a background plant in my 75 gallon tank. Or maybe siamensis hygro if i got that name right. Just something easy that will blow in the current of the filters. I thought about jungle val but that stuff melting too easy and I don't want to be cleaning it out all the time.

On another note:

I have some stuff I'd like to sell to make some money for larger pieces of driftwood.

Medium size driftwood
HOB power filters
Heaters
55 gallon black aquarium stand with 2 magnetic doors
Other aquarium stuff that I don't feel like typing haha
I wish I lived closer. I really want those corys but i dont think i have the time to go over there from fishtown
