Not at the moment - going to try and work it into an order later this month (I'm trying to rotate thru different foreground plants, decided to get the HC this week)

Hmmm The HC sounds tempting. How big are the portions?

I don't know yet - there had been a request for "dwarf baby tears on rock" so that's what I ordered. I'll be unpacking it later tonight.

Grabbed your last hidden C. paleatus and 2 off the c. habrosus, a crypt, and 2 b. Australious. Your plant tanks looked real good rich. I liked the tears on rock too. If you have them next Saturday prob grab one.

I just wanted to say this thread is a fantastic idea. I'll definitely make the drive out for any South American biotope plants, small swords in particular. Since our Southie water is so soft, I've been dreaming about trying some Erios out but I know they're extremely demanding. I'll definitely email next harvest time! I've also noticed that its very hard to get decent foreground plants in stock from most LFS's.

Thanks for asking Rus - hope to see you at next BAS meeting.

(I might setup a slightly alkaline tank for them and some cool Pseudomugil or Iriatherina rainbowfish)

Gah !
The desert gobies I ordered didn't come in - instead we got peacock gudgeons (which I love but wasn't expecting)

I took home a trio (1m2f) but there are still at least a handful left.
they are young but colored up nicely - red/blue bodies, yellow trim on the fins of the male I grabbed. No yellow bellies on the females yet.
