Boston Aquarium Meeting Monday 9/16/2013 8 pm - Planted Nano Tanks!


Hey guys!!

It's another monthly reminder for our tpt members to go to the BAS meeting this Monday 9/16! Don't miss this one! its going to be about Nano planted tanks! Its one of the rare times all the New England fish people talk about plants!! The talk will be by Karen Randall, who is one of the founders of Aquatic Gardeners Association. So don't miss this one!!

There will also be a small fish bowl and a small auction. Bring your plants, fish, shrimps! Or anything aquatic you would like to get rid of!

To match the nano tank theme, i'll bring some of my cute least killifish =)
and some HC probably, and all these random java ferns (lace, needle, trident) i have sitting around.

Come Come come =) This time instead of talking about my bga (all gone now! killed my erio cincereum tho), we can talk about my new BBA in my blyxa/endlers tank (tips please!) =(

Doors open at 7:30, talk starts around 8 pm. Don't park in the parking lot (expensive). Post here if you have trouble finding the learning lab!

Hey, guys. Might make it over tomorrow, and looking forward to meeting you if I do.

Would anyone coming have any of the following? Quantities I'm looking for in parentheses ... would love to purchase or discuss trade.
  • Regular Bolbitis heudelotii (a few)
  • mini Bolbitis (several, up to around 6)
  • Crinum calamistratum (one or two)
  • C. aquatica/natans (3 or so)
  • C. thaianum (a few, if they've already got good leaf growth)
  • Echinodorus angustifolia 'Vesuvius' (a half-dozen or so)
  • Anubias coffeefolia (one or two)
  • A. "Gasser", A. hastifolia, assorted rarer Anubias (one or two each) – let me know if you have something other than the usual barteri variants ... should mention that I'm not interested in any of the white/marbled cultivars

Nice seeing everyone today! lots of good stuff this week! The talk was pretty good, I Loved all the scapes =) the shrimp part was a bit confusing. I don't think CBS are aggressive? Tho i think what she had was a bumble bee shrimp.
