Peter I got some duckweed... had a few stems hitchhike on some moss I purchased. I can give you a bit. Won't be much but it reproduces worse than rabbits :\

I was there yesterday they have some good species for planted tanks. All looked really healthy, and of good quality.

No specific holidays that I'm aware of, although as long as you call at least a day before, we can usually schedule something around our service calls and livestock pickup.
As far as the corys go - those were the last of those C. paleatus I'm afraid. Plenty of c. habrosus left. I'll be getting more paleatus in but I'm picky about my cory sources so I'm not sure if it will be "soon" -- I'd rather have no cory's than crappy ones.

ps - I will NOT be in the shop this weekend, but we should be getting some new plants in on Friday. The list includes:
Anubias sp 'nana'
Dwarf baby tears on rock
crypt. spiralis
Tropica sword (Echinodorus parviflorus 'Tropica')
Ludwigia repens
Bacopa australius
Aponogeton longiplumulosus
Pygmy chain sword ( Echinodorus tenellus)

I'll update things once I get the order unpacked and settled in.
I also put away some nice dwarf lily plants last week.

OK. I'll be making a stop in tomorrow to grab a couple more habrosus, and check out the plants.
