Pheonix moss and Crypts needed!!


Anyone have some pheonix moss and/or crypts of varying species to spare? Honestly I'm on a very tight budget for the 100g scape but hoping to work with someone more local than just try to find something on aquabid. If you check my YT channel for the "I got Wood" video, you will see just how much pheonix moss I hope to find, as id like to start a small amount on each limb of the driftwood to carpet it. As for crypts im not being to picky, I just want more variety than red and green wendtii which is all my LFS have as of late. I will be starting the scape of the 100 hopefully within the next 2 weeks. PM me if any questions or you have something and wanna work out a deal.

yes pheonix is Fissidens fontanus, PM me and im sure we can work something out, even a golf ball will get me started right now, i can farm it from that until the tanks is ready.

I am painting the stands interior tomorrow night, staining rest of it night after. I am also needing to check if the back glass is tempered as I may drill the tank. I am consilidating slightly and goin to use my current dirted 30, as a sump for the 100. Move the fish and plants into the 100 from 30, to save some funds and allow me to now have to invest in another filter setup for the 100 and reuse some other equipment.

I frequent Something Fishy in clio but they usually dont have as much variety as I am hoping for here, seems every time they only have either spiralis or red wendtii on hand. Of which I want both, just havent had tank space to hold any until i get the 100 rolling.

Well thanks to Idex, I should have some Fissidens in my mailbox tomorrow. I went on a small shopping spree @ Plantedaquariumscentral.com and picked up glosso and various crypts. I ordered an in-line CO2 reactor today so hopefully that ships and is here promptly so I have better full tank CO2 dispersion.

Here is how it looks currently after also installing the weirbox and drilling the tank after waiting over a MONTH for the diamond hole saw to show up....

Other than the CO2 reactor that is enroute from DrsFosterSmith, and the future plan of adding some angels and maybe a couple more small species. Here is the finished project as i let it sit and begin to grow =D http://youtu.be/-toUf0b8mek
