GCCA Parking Lot Swap - February 16th


Figured it's about time to get this thing rolling... little over a month and a half away... who's ready?!

Please post any WTT/WTB/WTS ads in this thread
If posting any WTT/WTS/WTB ads, please use BIG RED BOLD LETTERING in the first line to distinguish it from other posts.
Be sure to exchange contact info prior to the event in case someone shows up late!




Map of parking lot:
Going to try to use the same spot as usual, but we've seemed to be creeping closer and closer to the doors the past few times. Just keep an eye out for a group of people standing along the back row of cars there.

Just because it's dirt doesn't make it low tech

PlantNewbster,

There usually is a shrimp vendor at the Swap who has a whole variety of shrimp. His RCS look very nice (very red) and only $1 each. Also, the cichlids you listed may also be available for purchase from some of the vendors at the Swap as well. When it gets closer to the date, GCCA usually posts all the vendors who will be there, what they are bringing, and how to get in contact with them to pre-order from them. I'll keep the main Swap Meet thread updated when I see it up on their site

Bump for this to the top and possibly saving a spot for WTB or WTT.

Default WTS: Bunch of equipment/stuff

Have a bunch of fish stuff laying around my storage room that I'm hoping someone else might be able to use. I'm not sure about pricing, so if it seems high, the price is negotiable on most items.

1) Polished aluminum reflector (~3ft worth - needs to be cleaned) - $10

2) Bottle of Greenlead liquid nitrogen (Little less than 500ml) - $10

3) Coralife 18 watt, 9 inch 50/50 Sunlight/Actinic CF bulb - $5

4) 5 Bioballs - Free if you purchase something and ask for the bioballs

5) Brand new, medium piece of mopani wood - $10

6) brand new Lifeguard 1/2" bulhead kit - $7.50

7) Amersham Pharmacia Scientific Peristaltic pump - $50 (I can show you how to use it)

8) Small Mag-clean glass cleaner and thermometers - $5

9) Topfin Powerhead 30 (95gallon/hour) - $10

10) JBJ Nano-Glo Refugium LED - $25 (These are BRIGHT. I retrofitted this over a small bowl and it was plenty of light for the tank)

11) Workhorse 5 Electronic Ballast w/CF endcap prewired - $10

PM me if you're interested. I can send pics of any of the stuff if you're interested.

I will also like have some plants ready to go when the swap rolls around, so will update this post.

WTB
Red or Pink Ramshorn Snails

I'd love a few red or pink ramshorns if you have any to spare.

WTT and/or RAOK
- Hornwort (ceratophyllum demersum), lots of it.
- Leopard Spotted Ramshorn snails.
- Mini Ramshorns.

I'm looking for Windelov Java Fern, or the above-listed red or pink Ramshorns, or Anchor or Christmas moss.

Just a heads up... I was at PetCo about a week ago and they had the $1/gallon sale. You could get a brand new one for $40!

Thank you! And I'd love a few MTS, too. Although probably not too many MTS since I obviously overfeed and have made my tanks snail nirvana.
