I asked about them a few months ago, and was directed to the Bucks County Aquarium Society. They're illegal to ship across state lines, so the online market has disappeared.

KingPlakat I have some greater and lessor duckweed available to anyone who wants it My goal is to separate the greater from the lessor so it's manageable in my tanks. Currently it's mixed together. Also willing to part with a handful of stems of water sprite plants about 8 inches in height.

Free to those who want it. Would be interested in Java moss as a trade if you had some.

Fishies_in_Philly Hey, thank you. The plants are acclimating nicely, and the fish are playing all over the tank

There were some gorgeous tanks in the aga competition last year.

marley77 Dropped off the stems and fish with Bill Sunday. Thanks again Bill. Now I need an inspiration for my new cory/oto/RCS tank. Time to dig through the tank journals.

KingPlakat I'd be willing to donate some old penguin style HOB filters for the new guy. Only get on here so often, but I'll check my message box over the next few days. I'm located in Roxborough/Manayunk area.

And my kids also love taking care of something like this. So... I am ready for the big league.

I Don't have a big budget, but around $100 to start a 55 gallon planted aquarium.

Is there anyone willing to sell their aquarium with all the furnishings for around $100? Maybe you are moving and need to get rid of the aquarium real quick?

Please PM me if you have a decent setup. I am not in a hurry, but looking for a good deal to fit my budget; so even if you read this message after 3 months, I might still be looking for one.


If you still need equipment, let me know. I have quite a bit just laying around I would more than willing to 'donate' for the kids' enjoyment

marley77 So Moseschi1 and I are working out a time/place to give him the plants.

Bill, If you want the fish I am around Sunday. Maybe we can meet halfway on Columbus/95 somewhere?
