55 gallon breakdown - plants and fish in N. Tampa/Lutz
 
I've grown tired of my 55 gallon setup. I feel like I've been neglecting the fish, the plants and just the overall maintenance of the tank. The fish still seem happy as evidenced by my BN plecos repeatedly breeding and the plants are doing well enough considering I rarely fertilize or prune them anymore.

I'm not pricing anything, but if you want to give me a donation to go towards my next project, that would be cool. Give me what you think is fair.

PM me if you want to come by and check out what I have. I definitely don't want to ship any fish, but I might ship plants.

Fish
13 Glowlight tetras
2 Dwarf Flame Gouramis
7 Columbian Tetras

10-12 BN plecos left (keeping the breeding pair...for now)

Plants
Various crypts
Temple - withered away, threw it out
Amazon sword - also withered, threw it out
Anubias (I could be convinced to cut off a chunk or two, but keeping most of it)
One wisteria plant left

I'm keeping the following: filter, powerhead, inline heater, driftwood, rocks.

The aquarium itself is beat to hell, with TONS of scratches and a decent sized crack that I messily patched back in 2001. It's been holding for 11 years...I believe I got the tank back in 1995. If somebody wants it for whatever reason, feel free to take it home when I'm done with the breakdown process.

The stand is a decent AGA pine stand, I'd like to get some money out of it. The canopy is a hastily crafted, yet functional piece and really doesn't have any value. I'll be keeping the light.

Yeah, pretty much. Whenever I throw in a cucumber slice, they appear out of nowhere.

Awesome I'm waiting for a DPG sale and then I will be setting up two 20 L shrimp tanks so I should be able to find a home for at least 10 of your BN's :)

BTW your redonkulous grow plant looks to be like wysteria but I can't tell from the pic I'd need a closer shot

How soon are you looking to have the fish re-homed

doinkmobb 12-24-2012 03:32 AM

Wisteria, you are correct. It's going nuts.

I'd like to break down everything in the next month or so. I'm going to dismantle my 10 gallon in addition to the 55 and downsize to a single 17.4 gallon Mr. Aqua.

drewsuf82 12-24-2012 04:34 AM

Hmmm if the rumors are true that should be enough time :)

GraphicGr8s 12-25-2012 05:17 AM

Don, did you get my PM?

drewsuf82 12-26-2012 02:57 PM

And BTW I will def be interested in re-homing some of the BN Plecos I just need to get the homes set up and running for them thats why I asked how long you were keeping them for

GraphicGr8s 12-26-2012 09:53 PM

Resent

Have you found homes for your bn yet

BraveBuc 01-02-2013 12:31 AM

I'd be happy to pick that 55g up if you just want to get rid of it.

Sure, I'll let you know when it's empty and ready to go. Probably won't be for at least a few more weeks though.

Only you and GraphicGr8s have expressed interest in the plecos. I'm noticing more and more tiny babies hiding in the wisteria.
