GCCA Parking Lot Swap - September 30th


Please post any WTT/WTB/WTS ads in this thread
If posting any WTT/WTS/WTB ads, please use BIG RED BOLD LETTERING in the first line to distinguish it from other posts

Map of the parking lot:

For people who are going to parking lot swap... let's shoot for meeting at #2! Be sure to exchange contact info prior to Sunday in case anything changes and we can't meet at #2!

So obviously X is the main entrance to the Best Western Plus where the Swap Meet is at. The numbers could be possible locations for us to meet for the Park Lot Swap.

I would think that the parking lot to the northwest of 2 is done by now so that could be another option if none of these work. Also, if you think other areas in the parking lot might work, please suggest them as well as I'm open to anything. I just want to get this thing started as it's less than a month away and we need to get rollin' on this

Plus, this will be our first Swap at a new location so who knows what to expect really... the day of it might change depending what is going on there already

I vote for #2

I still have the 4 - 20L drilled tanks

Everything in my Whiskey Barrel will be up for sale.



I'll have some Cryptocorynes : Ciliata, Green Grecko, Keei, Wendetti 'Fla Sunset'

Anubias nana

Water Lettuce

S. graminea

Staurogyne sp. bihnar


I'll do a proper Local only sale thread with my famously bad cell ph. pics a week before the swap.

What time do the parking lot shenanigans start? I am gonna try to make it, but I have work the night before until like 4am, so we will see.

On another note, I may have some cherries and L144 plecos to sell if anyone is interested. The plecos just hatched out yesterday, so they will be unsexed and small, but if you really want some, let me know.

I may also have some MTS, and ramshorn snails too.

WTS

***Pending***


MTS - I have more than I need. My plans have changed, I'm building an Aquaponic system vs. planting more tanks. The clay is in, I'll include the correct amy. of Potash for your tank foot print. I do not have Dolomite.

This is with out question the best batch I've made so far. Over a month of aging, at least 7 cycles.

A large Flat Rate box will hold 720 cu. in
And a Med will hold 440Cu In.

The math on your tank needs is L x D x 2"

>>>So a 20L would need 720 Cu. In. or 1 lg. box
a 55 would need 1152 Cu, In. or a lg & md box.

Larger are $30
Med are $18

I might have 4 Lg. size boxes total in my storage drum???
