I'm going to label things and hand out pieces of paper with the corresponding numbers. And some pens... people just hand in the paper~

I'm pretty sure the swap meet will be long enough for everyone to try it~ other wise i can pass around chipotle cups with a sample of each in it...

All packed up for tonight, see everyone tomorrow!

Deep Blue Solar Flare Mini Gooseneck Clip - $15

I really won't know how much of everything I have until I trim my severely overgrown tank, but I will likely have:

Many


Leopard Val
Frogbit

Few

Althanaria Reckii

Just One

Kliener Bar Sword

In keeping with the theme of the event, most of these plants (except the Vals and floaters) have interesting emersed forms.

All my plants have ramshorn snails, so dip if you don't want snails.

I'm also giving away some variegated Lindernia samples.

Looking for

Rilis
Ember Tetras, if anyone has any they want to rehome

Otherwise, I usually give my stuff away, first come, first served.

FOOD SAMPLES (always free!)

YFS Soft Spirulina
YFS Soft Krill
YFS Color Bits

HBH 8 Flakes
