Hey guys, 7pm would be too late. My parents don't like people over past 6:30pm...it sucks I know. I got everyone's money today, I'll send the money through paypal tomorrow to my supplier and double check that he will be shipping Monday. Plants are coming from California so hopefully it doesn't take more than 2 or 3 days.

I still don't have my car yet, but I'll try my best to get myself over there. I'll know more next week.

Just sent the money for the anubias order. I threw in an extra $15 for some java fern just to check out the quality. I'll keep everyone posted.

Emailed the guy to double check that he was shipping out tomorrow and he said there was a week delay from the nursery. Doesn't look like we'll be getting our plants this week. I will keep you guys posted as usual. If there are too many delays I'll push for extra plants to compensate and see what he says.

Here's the update guys. The guy told me he would ship today. I did get an email from paypal with tracking information so that's always good. He didn't send me a personal email though. Guess we'll see over the next couple days if USPS gives me an estimated arrival time and I'll let you guys know. If I have my car by the end of the week I'll bring everything up to Jimmy's place. If I don't then you guys are more than welcome to stop by my place and we can salivate over the plants here and possibly do our own little swap meet. Still need to spruce up my 75 gallon though. I did set up more thanks on the breeding rack though

i was gonna do that Jimmy, but i have seen awesome growth from the anubias i have in my drystart tank, so i think i might end up doing another dry start in the 125. just gotta come up with a hardscape idea.

I would be scared to kill my anubias in an emersed setup. I did end up making a small emersed setup for the glosso you gave me Bill. It feels like I started it about a month ago and it's just now starting to take off. It's just a little 2.5 gallon tank with mud in the bottom and a glass top. Didn't bother to cap it at all because I figured if it went to hell I could recycle the dirt and use it in an actual planted tank. So far so good.

According to tracking information, the package is out for delivery. I don't know why it didn't update until this morning. If anyone wants to swing by today let me know. When the box gets here I'm basically going to do a count to make sure we got what we paid for and then I'll go through the tedious task of counting individual species.

Just got the package guys. Everything is nice and labeled with number counts on each bag. I took pictures on my kitchen table with it all laid out haha. Plants are nice and green as you would expect from anubias. I put everything back in the box for now. I gotta think of a way to count and separate everyones order. I'll likely just count each species first and then separate them into separate ziplock bags for each person. I'm gonna need to fill up one of my 18 gallon totes so I can keep everything wet while working with them. Wish I had the tracking information sooner so we could have arranged a meet for today I sent Bill and Jimmy PM's with my number. Just give me a call or PM.
