NY Swapmeet 2013
The Next Swap Meet will be on Saturday Feb 2 @ 2:30

Location: Whole Foods Market
95 E Houston St New York, NY 10002‎

Foot court. I encourage everyone to be a consumer there to avoid being accused of loitering. We are likely going to be there for no less than 30 minutes to talk/swap then head towards the walking tour of Pacific/123/WIN/Aquastar.

Feel free to post what is available to swap/looking for and let the festivities begin!

Those who wish to meet early for lunch, please speak up.

don't know if ill make it out to the city... but i have a bunch of powerhead most likely suitable for the 55g as it came with it when i bought my tank

dont know its value / or what plants i need

Wicket_lfe 01-17-2013 06:07 PM

If I can make it I should have...

Red tiger Lotus - varying sizes, not sure how many, I owe ppl some RAOK.
Dwarf Sag - a few plantlets
Java fern- I have a giant plant, I'll just trim some
Willow fern? - does this even exist? its some kind of fern with trident looking leaves
Marsilea Minuta - I just bought a WHOLE bunch of this and probably won't need it all. I'm planting this weekend so will have an update: UPDATE: its in transition phase so a lot of it melted. :( I dont mind setting up another time to meet when its recovered. I know a lot of ppl have asked about it.

Looking for:
Sunset Hygro
Simple stems for low light
micro sword
suggestions for a midground plant?

frrok 01-17-2013 06:14 PM

I have nothing. :( lol. But will be looking for some hand me downs. Not sure if my tank will be set up by then. Hopefully!

shloken38 01-18-2013 12:11 AM

I am interested! NY or NJ is cool with me. If it is NJ, I have a mini van and would be willing to pick 5 to 6 people from the PATH train in Hoboken. Not sure about doing LI.....I can be convinced though!

All I have to offer....

-black bar endlers fry/juvies(NOT hybrids, would classify as Class P)....juvies may or may not color up by this day
-guppy fry/juvies....nothing special, but the parents are very nice looking
-red cherry shrimp.....again, nothing special, but some of the moms are a real nice red (might have a lot of these to offer!)
-Ken's fish food. I can give out baggies of premium flakes, veggie sticks and algae wafers. I also have betta micro crumble, which I actually use for my fry and they love it!

I'm still waiting for my plants to grow out, so I can't really offer much as far as they go. Looking forward to this!
