furnfins You should do the rescape! I know whenever I get the itch, I end up doing it. Make sure you post pics![/QUOTE]

Ya, I should just do it Saturday and stop talking about it! I'm looking to get rid of most of the Chinese Ambulia I have, it's like a jungle in there!
It'll look a bit sparse but that's ok

No problem. The Hydrocotyle and Subwassertang are doing well. You gave me a lot, too! The Hydrocotyle definitely give some brightness to my tank, which is a good contrast to the dark moss and subwassertang. Subwassertang is some weird stuff!

Thanks furnfins! It was nicely planted before, but the swap definitely got me to where I wanted to be.

furnfins Shloken everything looks beautiful! Love the DW and plants look great!
You have a super nice tank, makes me want to rescape my 75g now.

shloken38 Just wanted to show you guys what my tank looks like now....special thanks to those who brought plants for me. I pretty much re-scaped the left side of the tank, the piece of driftwood towards the front being new. I bought that for the coffeefolia. I can't wait till everything grows in. And Albert, those hygros....I can see them growing in already! You weren't kidding when you said I would have bushes in no time!

Let me know what you guys think!

Just left feedback for everyone I traded with....hopefully some of can do the same. I also sent out some friend requests (still have a few more of those to go). Not sure how much that really means on this website, but hopefully you guys accept.

furnfins [QUOTE=shloken38;2444186]Yeah, there definitely was a buzz there. When I met up with eeng and furnfins, we were hanging out in the back. eeng was whipped out a baggie of fissidens, and people were looking at us like we were dealing "something else".....hahaha. I will deifintely leave everyone feedback.

You should have seen some of the looks people were giving us in the back when everyone was swapping their stuff, lol, it was very funny watching the looks on peoples face Glad I was able to make it and meet some new people.

Glad to hear the endlers are ok Albert. I was super worried because of the cold. I had heatpacks in my backback, but i was still paranoid. Definitely keep me posted on how they do.

acitydweller Its my pleasure all. btw, im going to leave postive feedback for those whom i traded with and would encourage everyone to do it for each other. Its not mandatory but something nice to do. I had 100% success rate with all live stock and with all the deliveries made. What a great swap it was.

I didnt realize how much buzz we caused at wholefoods. but then again, the place was buzzing before we got there... It truly was the perfect spot to meet.

bereninga I had a great time for my first NYC Swapmeet! It was a pretty big turnout IMO.

Btw, those Sundadanio axelrodi 'blue' that they had at Pacific were pretty awesome. I wish I had the space for them!

Thanks for hosting, acitydweller!

Awesome! I was worried because it was pretty cold yesterday. I had heat packs in there, but still worried about it.

The females will double in size. You should try and check some of them out a little closer. I know I had seen some that were saddled.

Aaahhhh....no more from you Oz! I stopped at a store this morning to buy a piece of driftwood for the coffeefolia I got from Gordon yesterday, and almost bought some fish. With all that conversation yesterday, I have that itch to buy more fish. It's all your fault.....hahaha.
