I can make a Saturday morning meet. I work at 4 on Saturdays so if it was in the morningish time that would be awesome. I need to be home by 3 to make it to work by 4. I can't make Father's Day if you guys were still thinking about that. I'm too lazy to go back and read all the pages I missed... lol
Hey joe!! Been wondering where you've been!! Need anything for mom's tank?

Just need to know location, date and time. Live in NJ and work in Central Philly. If meetign is near the convention center, I'm in.
Welcome to the forums tt! We have been meeting on sundays at jimmy's (joon) restaurant in the northeast. It's right off the bridge st exit of 95. Very easy to get to. Still trying to get a concensus on what date is good for another meet. Stay tuned
Otherwise, feel free to join in and there's no rule that says you have to wait until a meet to trade with other members

It comes with a hood and one t8 light, I can throw in an extra brand new bulb for it also. Just shoot me a pm if your friend is interested. Thanks!

Of course I'll be grabbing some stuff for her tank at the next meet assuming I can make it. She wants all guppies. When I stopped laughing out loud I told her pick again. I'll be filling it with Angels more than likely. I have enough plants floating around to get her started. She needs a better light before I really stock the tank though. Here's the start right after I filled it...

I have a couple plants I really like that just wont grow for me submersed and i'm hoping this will fix it.

Dan,

I have 20oz paintball co2 bottle if you want. They are $10 filled. I believe the test seals are good for another year.

Well, i took those 4 burnt nubs you gave me and they are now 8 . 2 of them are still nubs, but they are now starting to recover. The other 5 are growing nicely now. I'll take picz of them tonight. I have them in the "icu" section of my 60g with a few other plants i have been working hard on resurrecting from the dead
Save yourself some $$ on the pb setup by getting the tank from van, get a remote trigger set from dick's and a needle valve from home depot. I think dicks sells a full pb setup with tegulator and bottle for $60, add a $10 valve from h.d. and you're set.
I was gonna offer up mine, but i think i'm gonna give it to my wife for her tank. Maybe i can get her to work it off in trade.....lol

The probable reason it is melting for you is because it is a true soft water plant. It also prefers high light and a buttload of co2. And it is a slow grower. Almost as slow as downoi.
