You can take them for $10. I just don't want them anymore because I feel like they eat my red teacup platy fry.

Probably won't have enough to sell until early summer. I have a group of about 12 right now. Originally I only had 6, but a few females dropped only a couple fry each that have survived to adulthood and a couple adults died of old age and one getting stuck behind a breeding trap...won't be using those again. They originally didn't catch my fancy so I never had them in their own breeding tank, but they are the reddest fish I've ever had in my fishroom and teacups are not easy to come by so I'll be giving them their own tank soon enough.

I would sell you some right now, but I've grown attached to them and they look awesome against a green background/fully planted tank. They also don't spit out hundreds of fry like guppies do, so I'll be needing more of them to reproduce into adequate numbers.

Lol....it's nature at work. Even with a 75 gallon tank full of java moss, the swords tend to find the slow fry and eat them.

Hey gang. I put in an order last week for about 40 anubias plants of various species. I don't have the species list and I won't know what Im getting until they show up Wednesday. I got a crazy deal on them which is why I ordered so many. I'll be posting them for sale in the classifieds here but I thought I'd give the local group a shot to pick some up at good prices or even trades. Most likely pricing will be around $5/plant or 3 for $12. I have to see what the sizes end up being. If you are looking for plants in mass quantity ever let me know. I have a wholesale account with a plant distributor so I can get really good pricing and pass along the savings. I'll post pics when the plants show up...

I used to be a Power Seller on here but got away from it when life got a little crazy a few months ago.

Define "mass quantity "....I know more than a few, but is there a minimum?

No minimum really. One of my suppliers doesn't have a minimum at all so I could order anything. Obviously with shipping and large order discounts the prices get better with larger quantity...
