themetalchurch I'd give Worldwide Aquarium & Pets in roxborough, they may buy from private breeders

On that note, if anyone local has peppered corys they're trying to get rid of give me a shout. Looking for a crew of 3-4 to keep my guys company.

German Blue Rams available

Hi all,

This is my first post on the forum, but I am a long time lurker. I was wondering if anyone would be interested in purchasing some german blue rams that I have been breeding. I got the parents from a quality breeder about a year ago and I am currently exploding with fry. I have hundreds of them all the way from wigglers to 4 month old juveniles. I am located in Chester County, but I frequently visit both Delaware and Lancaster Counties as well. I'm not sure if I'm willing to ship them; I would prefer a local buyer. Is anyone interested in a pair (or a few) or does anyone know of a LFS in the area that will buy from a private breeder? Thanks. I can post pictures of the parents with fry if anyone is interested.

Fishies_in_Philly Yay! Lol

Btw, I will have some rotalas, some alternanthera, ludwigia, and downoi to give away at the meet.

Fishies_in_Philly Very cool. Brad, I may take that light off your hands. I still have those 2 24" tanks that need building.

themetalchurch I'm definitely planning on stopping by for a bit, I have that 24" planted+ and a Aqueon 100w adjustable heater I'm planning on bringing.

marley77 I think you can put Roxanne and I as a tentative yes for Sunday. I say tentative as she is traveling this week on business. We do plan on stopping by though.

That water lettuce you gave me has exploded. I have about a 12" x 12" section with deep 2-3" roots someone can have. I also might have a few assorted stems as well.

I have a spare AC 70 and a Fluval 305 canister I haven't used in a couple years. need to see if it still works.

Fishies_in_Philly Hey folks, since the swap meet is scheduled for this upcoming Sunday, I was hoping to get a rough head count so I know how many refreshments I need to buy.

Also, if you are attending and have equipment or similar you are bringing to unload, post it so people can get an idea of what will be available.

Fishies_in_Philly Same here. I had my wife holding boxes while I used my phone flashlight to read labels. Lol I'm glad I did that though. It gave me the opportunity to see which ones were brown.

The Trigger Wow was in there today and noticed them too. It was so dark back there I could barely read the packages. i would have picked up some UG if I had a high tech tank to put it in lol

Fishies_in_Philly It wasn't too bad, I suppose. $13 for a tissue culture. They go about $8 online, but I guess after you factor shipping, it's comparable.

I'll keep you updated on our little bit I planted. The rest is growing in an emersed grow tank until I get my 20L set up.

marley77 Hey Bill,

I'm thinking about monte carlo for my 20 long. Was it pricey at Hidden Reef? I'm interested to see how yours does.
04-02-2016 09:08 PM
Fishies_in_Philly So I just left the hidden reef. The spent a lot of $ to bring in tissue cultured plants, and where do they keep them? In the dark, inside boxes. 6 tubs of hc 'cuba' we're all brown. It was horrendous! Still bought some UG and micrantheum 'monte Carlo' though.

The Trigger Since this thread has higher traffic.... Anyone in the philly or south jersey area who wants a free whites tree frog send me a message. The frog is about 4 years old and fully grown adult

KingPlakat Hey guys, I have tons of dwarf chain sword I recently purchased from aquabid. Looking to get rid of a lot of it quickly. Literally have hundreds of plants. Open to trades for anubias species since those are my favorite types of plants and if you have any ancistrus (bristlenose plecos) that would be awesome. Open to other trades as well for equipment, plants, etc. Just want to get this stuff off my hands before it dies in the bucket. Cash is always acceptable as well. $10 for 50+ plants.

Shoot me a text or call 610-592-4450
