I'll be placing my plant order tonight or tomorrow so last call to get on board. I have a Finnex Ray 2 coming this week as well. I already have the ferts and Co2 junk from my previous high tech tanks. I'm excited to get this new tank fully planted and running...

I added some Julii Corys and a Featherfin Squeaker catfish to the tank today. Needed some bottom dwellers to scavenge...

I've got some elatine triandra for sale. $6 for a 2"x2" patch. it doesn't ship well, but grows well once it takes root. So would like to sell locally.

I know it's not plants but is anyone interested in some free fish? Pickup only, I am in South Philadelphia. I just rescaped a tank and am looking to rid of old stock, I've gotten into microfish but can't set up another tank.

You DON'T have to take all these guys as a group - if you are just in the market for some, let me know.

5 Rosy Barbs (puntius conchonius)- 1 male, 4 female - short/pale-fin variety, chubby and healthy, good color.

2 Gold Barbs (puntius semifasciolatus) - both probably female - one has equilibrium issues that it's had for years. Both otherwise healthy. Last two survivors of what was formerly a big group.

1 3" Chinese Algae Eater (gyrinocheilus aymonieri) - sex unknown - hasn't shown any aggression towards any tank mates but they are known to get at least twice this size and prey on flat-bodied, slow fish so keep that in mind if you want to take it home.
I've had all these fish together for years in a 29 gallon high. That's the minimum requirement for the CAE, although it will eventually need a bigger tank than that. Supposedly they get up to 11 inches, although anecdotally, owners say they rarely do... Mine has a good and varied diet and has only grown an inch in 3 years.

Anyone interested or know someone who might be?

I could be in for some of that. High light / Co2 / ferts required? I just setup a high tech tank so in theory I should be able to grow just about anything. Was going to do glosso carpet but all the glosso I ordered could be used in another tank instead...

Hi All,
I have some stuff i'd like to get rid of.

Please excuse the messy tank - I just moved it from the basement to my office on the 2nd floor and made a mess of it.

Cherry shrimp
low-grade CRS
Xmas moss
Small crypts, wendti red, parva, green
a couple stems of Alternanthera reineckii roseafolia
And
A giant Crypt Nurii pahang mutated - its shading half the 10g and I lost most of my DHG carpet

I also have 10-12 albino cories free to a good home (i'll throw in some cherrys and a couple CRS to anyone who takes them off my hands).

Other stuff:
Sponge filters
Petco airpump
24oz CO2 tank
Glass diffuser

PM me if you're interested in anything.

Pick up only in Collingswood NJ.

Bill! Good to see you're still around. Let me know also what forum your on got worried a while back when you said you were taking a break. Didn't think I'd see you back.

Jesus. Sorry to hear that Bryan. I got lucky and never lost power. Did you have a battery powered air pump on hand?

That's sad news :-( I hope your power returns very soon!! We were very fortunate to not lose power.
