amp Larry I could send you down some clipping if you cover shipping, probably be about 8 bucks. I have a good amount of Sunset Hygro, Bacopa Caroliniana, Ludwigia Repens and a few Narrow Leaf Ludwigia clippings. I will probably have a small amounts of some other stem plants too that i will throw in also (I really need to trim my 10g today, its way over grown). Shoot me a PM if your interested.

Florida_Larry cool a third, BTW chris did you ever sell that 10gal?

Both tanks are ready to rck here finally, you where right the aa guy very good, just went in asked if he could get me a price, and 1 day later he gave me the price an had ordered in 4 bags woohoo, went dont a bought them, went to POW for the rest, so not the 55 and the 50 are up and clear, both at temp.. and baseline numbers established for both tanks.

He had a pretty thin selection of plants, so thin i had to ask if he had any... lol and i was standing in front of them when i asked.

Nice guy there though, admitted he knew nothing of ECO Complete, but would find out.

so now all i need is to start planting, anyone got some clippings they would like to part with?

and Chris i might take that 10 and white clouds off your hands if you still are looking to dispose of them.

demonbreedr16 guys are scary knowing the petstore I go too when I get a chance! LOL! Chris are you still selling the 10gal and the WCMM's?

chase127 hahah <--- buy it there. in your 55 you would need 4 bags, idk about the 50 cube. probably like 5?
pros- packed full of nutrients, plants just love this stuff. you might not even have to dose the water column if you have low light. it buffers your water to soft and acidic, which plants thrive in. its just the best substrate for a healthy planted tank.
cons- theres an ammonia cycle that you have to go thru once you first get it, but its def worth it. and its kind of fragile, so dont beat the crap out of it.

Florida_Larry advantages / disadvantages? ( now i got another thing to look up and research... thanks )
01-19-2009 10:07 PM
chase127 yeah i think it was the same price when i picked up my last bag from him. if i were you i'd go with aquasoil instead of eco for that price.
01-19-2009 10:05 PM
Florida_Larry ahhh ok, i know that place, never been in there, it's just down the road for me, i live just off peachland down at the Homer depot end.
will have to stop in and see what he would charge, POW wants 27.00 for 20 lbs
am looking at close to 200.00 just for the substrate for both tanks.
gonna have to stop by there tomorrow and check them out.

chase127 yeah they have some crypts and then random stem bunches but nothing too amazing. the FW fish selection isnt the best ever but ive never had a fish die i bought from them. AAA is in the peachland publix strip mall, closer to the taco bell, right off of kings highway. again, not the best selection, but really great customer service there. getting things special ordered from him is really easy.

Florida_Larry AAA is that in the strip plaza by that Amer. Eagle post? just off 41?
or the Winn Dixie Plaze down past Midway.
either or will work, i have gone into the petowners warehouse right on 41, was there today, they have 3 20lb bags in stock, not overly impressed with their FW assortment, But they got plants.

chase127 go to AAA pets down on kings highway, tell the owner (i forget his name, but hes the british one) that Chase sent you. ive got some $5 off $25 or more coupons from AA pets you can have. he doesnt have any Eco comp in now but hes real good at ordering it, and it'll be here by friday if you tell him by thursday. finally someone who lives in charlotte county!

Florida_Larry just re-setting now after a brief absence *mumble 16 years mumble*

Wife had the idea to get me a 55g aga for xmas, then unknown to me, my daughter (stationed in Iraq) got me a 50g acrylic corner tank also for xmas.

So now im sitting pretty with 2 brand new tanks just iching to go.
Just completed the stands this past weekend, and last coat of paint is drying as i type, on the hood for the 55. both tanks have been leak tested. so should be able to get started setting them up this week.
gonna have to clean ut the lfs for the eco complete, and wait for more to come in, which should work out just about right.
01-19-2009 06:36 PM
chase127 lol nice what tanks are you keeping?
01-19-2009 06:29 PM
Florida_Larry yep, there are a few of us... OK maybe just me.
