I'll go. I'm a little light on plants at the moment, but I have young kribs, cories, and multies if anyone is interested.

What are you looking for? Any albino cory's?

Glad you're going to make it.

Riparium-type plants and Crinum species, I suppose. Things have been too busy to think about tanks much.

The cories are peppers, including a male with high-fin (not longfin) genetics.

What kind of plant cuttings do you have? I'd love to have more types of plants!

That's a good question I have a very nice either ludwigia (most likely) or hygrophila (very possible). It has 3 inch long narrow leaves, light green, good grower with CO2 and low light, that prefers to grow horizontally to spread out, but isn't adamant about it.

I had both some ludwigias and hygrophilas in the tank as tiny cuttings when I started it. After several adventures involving melting, before I added DIY CO2, one species began growing very robustly. It is that one, the green plant below:

Yes, I agree, but there are several varieties of that. I don't have any idea which variety this was supposed to be, but it does look like the basic plant. I won't bother bringing any cuttings.

I like that plant in my spare tank. Fast grower and competes out most of my algae. Though it doesnt help that I have like 4wpg on a small little tank. LOL shrimp love it.

Not to be a party pooper, but H polysperma is one of the few aquatic plants that are illegal to distribute even inside California. I don't recommend distributing it, and cuttings should be disposed of in a way that doesn't run the risk of the plant getting into waterways and causing millions of dollars in damages.

I've added a list of fish for sale on the SAPS site that I can bring to the meeting.
