Free to someone with a large tank: Blyxa aubertii "Kimberley"


I got a few of these plants from a friend. Turns out they grow way too big tall for my tank (4 feet TALL is what I've read and been told in my thread and what I've read). I really want to give these rare plants to someone with a large tank, minimum 75 100 gallons. Please don't take these plants if you don't have the tank space for them.

Thread here:
http://www.plantedtank.net/forums/sh...d.php?t=326562

More info here:
http://www.aquaticplantcentral.com/f...lyxa-id-4.html

Shoot me a PM if you're interested.

Edit - If you're PMing me to ship you a plant, I have only two requests:
1) You pay for the shipping and I am in no ways liable for lost, stolen, or delayed packages. Also I'm not responsible for plants that are DOA since I normally don't ship plants.
2) You PM me with a link to your tank journal or a pic of your setup.

Priority goes to those who are local btw...

Edit: One pending... two left.

From what I know about this plant, the 48 inches won't be your problem. It's the 12 inch width and 21 inch height of a 55 gallon that will do you in.

I've got a 135gal that I'm in process of replanting (actually a complete overhaul except substrate). I've requested donations and have one who offered up some large swords. I wanted something that would reach up & provide that "drape" effect for me.

This would be perfect ! I'll PM you...

Would you ship if I paid? I am in the process of setting up a 360g and am looking for plants that match the large scale. Upstate though so way too far to pick up in person...

I was at work all day so I haven't been able to respond to this thread. Added some more terms to the original post.
