You should do each with a different difficulty level, label them as low light, low-med, med-high, high light plants, so theres not so much confusion on what they are buying and can keep. And its a good way to upsell and school lights. Try to get some above water growing plants too, the aquaponics scene is picking up around here. And Aluka that's Rich from Unique Aquaria in Woburn.
If anybody wants to trade in some fissidens - please let me know, I'd love to get some in stock (that's another one where the wholesalers send us a cup of brown goo and call it a plant)
Thanks Drewsplantednutz, I agree completely - that was my plan with the 4 tanks -
One High light, two med, and one lower light, with mostly potted anubias in the bare bottom low light tank.
The 400w of T5 VHO on the show tank helps too

We lucked into some riparian plant cupsthat suction cup to the side of the tank, which I've been trying different plants in (some do well, some don't). They're a great way for us to merchandise our terrarium plants where people can see them

I'm a goby nut - working on getting some gudgeons and gobies into the rotation. Had a local source of C. eremius but just heard that he had a house fire (rumor is that there was a Stealth heater involved ).

Last time I ordered them they didn't sell to great, but gonna try again.
Just ordered an undescribed Brachygobius sp - hoping they will be freshwater but suspecting they will be brackish, in which case I'll probably take the whole order home and put them in a brackish tank there

Well it turns out that I'm only 20 minutes from you guys when I'm at home.

A little bit of a longer hike from my school, but its doable

I have a little riccia in stock - unfortunately it got overwhelmed by some duckweed, but with a little gentle grooming it might be salvageable. I'd gladly toss it in as a freebie with any other plants.
Unfortunately, blyxa, riccia and bolbitis are dreadful from wholesalers. I'll get back in touch with my local bolbitis source, he brings me lots of cool plants and is moving away soon. My best local source of blyxa was bringing me japonica, I don't know if I've ever seen auberti in person.
Right on, i'll stop by this weekend.

@redpaulhus

Do you carry any freshwater snails at unique aquaria? If so can you let me know what species/price? I visited your shop soon after you opened but was looking mostly at saltwater at that time. Cant remember if i saw any freshwater snails there. I do remember being amazed by your planted show tank though. The size of one of the anubias was unbelievable to me. Thanks for any info.

I know we have "mystery snails" (Pomacea bridgesii) for $2 each.
I had some nerites in ($2) but I think they may be sold out - I'll dig thru some tanks this weekend and see if any are left.

No Badis badis at all - they are kinda drab.
Some Daria dario in stock (Scarlet Badis) but no females.
Trying to get more but they have been out of stock wholesale.
