Hey, I'm from Satellite Beach and going to school at UCF (Orlando). I find myself driving between the two every couple of weekends.

Cool, sorry for the late response, Forgot about this thread.... If we can get a few more people we could have a little trade circle going around! That would be pretty sweet!

Nice, I have some extra christmas moss on a coconut shell cave, along with giant hygro, ludwigia repens? and probably some water sprite. Does anyone have dwarf sag or some kind of short grassy plant they would trade? I am also looking for a breeding pair of some smallish nice fish (dwarf cichlids?) for my 18 gallon tank.

I have an almost mint 25 foot Python up for trade too.

good to hear another person in brevard! Im on Merritt Island BTW

LOL 25' Python...WTH!!! lol. Bet it eats a lot.

Anyway. Trading circle is initiated! I am currently breeding gold rams and if any survive I could trade you a few no prob. The parents look pretty nice, especially the male. It will be a little while though since they just started hatching today.

As for plants I pretty much just have a lot of wisteria (Hygrophila difformis) if interested.

The python isn't nearly as hungry as it is thirsty, but it can still eat alot. http://www.drsfostersmith.com/produc...fm?pcatid=3910

I am DEFINITELY interested in the gold rams, I think they are exactly what I was looking for. Keep us updated on their growth.

I've got a pair of kribs that are in the process of making babies right now! I'd be happy to get rid of them once they grow. Although, the last group didn't make it so well. My plants are lacking at the moment and i'd love some christmas moss. If you want to sell some, let me know!! I'm gonna have a ton of feeder guppies here soon. I'm running a little experiment breeding them with endler/guppy mixes to see what kind of colors I can get out of them. I will be over run with them soon. So, if anyone needs some well cared for feeders or just wants some very colorful guppy mutts, then let me know!

BTW, I posted in the lounge but will post it here too. The Fish Store in Rockledge is going out of business. They're selling off their tanks. They're selling a 20 gallon with a glass top and filter for $20 if anyone needs one.

Hi, I am in Sebastian, Indian River County. Obviously not Brevard, but close enough I hope. I am just getting into planted tanks. I have had other tanks for years, but I am just starting my first planted version. If anyone has any plants or fish they are willing to sell at reasonable prices that would be great as I do not have anything to trade. Yet.

tinah, kribs are pretty sweet. I'm not sure if I should do rams or kribs, I'll make that decision once you guys have had successful broods.
I don't have too much christmas moss right now, but I can spread it out in my tank to grow it faster. I think my coconut shell was already claimed through a private message.

rbielefeld, I would love to give you some clippings from all of my plants. If you ever find yourself heading to East Orlando or Satellite Beach, let me know. They aren't worth making a dedicated trip for, but if you're already heading here it'll be cool.

Sandman, thanks for the offer. I am not sure when I will be heading that way. I will keep you in mind and I really do appreciate your willingness to let me have some cuttings.

Sandman, I've got baby kribs. They seem to be doing quite well and they are in the tank with mom and dad only at this point (they were beating everyone else up) I'll let you know when they are ready.

That's great tinah!

Just yesterday I was giving someone some christmas moss and saw that he had a tank of kribs, so I got 3 juveniles. Are yours standard kribs or a different coloration? Depending what they look like I may be interested anyway.
