Is that mini bolbitis still with you? I haven't seen it pop up anywhere this past year.
Dude, the mini bolbitis did great. It doulbed it size so I trimmed it and put 1/2 in my emergent setup where it did even better. Then I cooked it a few weeks ago by running my temp up to 95*. Now im back to square one with a few smalll pieces like you sent me about a year ago. Hopefully I can do better this year now that I have a better feel for what it likes

I am waiting for some AS to come in so I can set up a scape with all of the keei. It should be straight badassery if you asked me but im kindof a crypt dork As for the Buce, I have 6 available for trade and two mothers that I love and will keep forever If i can get any trades then I might setup a Buce scape this winter too.

That's gonna be one sexy tank, be sure to post up pics when it is complete. When they start multiplying like crazy I'll have to buy one off you! Man... I wish I had something to trade. I'd love to get some buce, but the price kind of scares me.

Nah, I was only going to ask $40 for mine. I hope to sell them to buy more crypts or go completely the opposite direction and set up a scape with them. They are just sitting for now until someone shows some interest. I am really into the crypts tho and would love to trade or sell to buy more crypts before it gets cold here (which is shortly). I am collecting striolata, cordata 'rosenervig', keei, and hudoroi if you see anyone around with some extras. You could add a few other SUPER rare ones to that list that ive NEVER seen for sale.

That's a shame about the mini bolbitis. Hopefully you can get it to grow well again. It's honestly a neat little plant. I might have to bug you for some in the future

Of course you would be collecting those crypts. They're great stuff! I'm really loving the cordata KR01. I'd get more except all the $ has been spent on new fish hehe.

If your only asking $40 I may see if you still have one my next paycheck!

You might ask Nick if he has a hudoroi to spare.

I got Nicks spare. Twice. I murdered the first one. Kinda. I never got it to take off. It melted within days. I was so disturbed at ruining a rare crypt that I didnt try for another year, this one is going strong but as with any addiction, one is never enough Ill hold a buce for you man, no worries

Well, if you are going to hold one I HAVE to buy it! I'll hit you up next week, Chad! So, are these currently growing emersed or submersed? Rather not try to convert such a rare plant. Shoot me a PM with anything else you might have for sale. I've got collectoritis of all kinds, so there is a good chance you will have something I want!

I dont have any crypts left that id come off of as im getting ready to move stuff around. Ill let you know when I do and there might be some. As for the Buce, they are submergents. They have been in my tank for almost a year now. I havent grown any Buce emergent yet. Im scared, especially now that I cooked alot of my emergent setup

Sounds good, man. I'll throw it in my 75 then! Should I put it in a fairly shaded spot when I get it, or will it do okay in higher light?
