Sorry to hear that Bill, I always enjoyed your posts, and hope you stick around the forum awhile. Where in Philly are you located? I'm in NE, in Mayfair.

the 20 longs are 30" long and i think 12 deep and 14 high or so. i only have one of them left. i will hold the 305 for you

-I am about to set up a 20 long dirted tank(maybe two)…I would definitely like any of the crypts, anubias, etc. Much like Van said I don’t want to be a hoarder or a glutton. I’m currently low to medium light so nothing too difficult to care for or too expensive.
- if you can’t get a fair price for the Eheim 2213- send me a pm. I’m sure with moving you could use the cash more than the equipment sitting in a closet. I don’t NEED it at the moment but was looking into Eheim anyway as I’ve heard good things & you can never have enough filtration. You may need to wait till end of month for this half of the deal(cashflow).
gotcha covered. don't be afraid of hoarding. get it while it's available. especially the crypts. the rare ones though, i am going to put an ad on the swap and shop for them.

TPT says I'm an algae grower... I'd like to think of myself as one hell of a Cabomba farmer.
