cholla wood availble locally?

Hi all,

I'll be spending several hours this coming weekend to work on tank maintenance. Wanted to add Cholla wood to the tanks to hopefully revitalize the tanks and start anew. Wondering if anyone has seen this available at any LFS or if anyone has any locally for sale?

also will be looking to pickup 2 ottos. should have picked them up at WIN last night but didnt want to risk it since i was working late last night.

much obliged!

Albert

Free is the best kind of deal

Let me know if you need any of my plants on RAOK and we can trade.

Do you have any types of bacopas? Just need a stem or two.

Re: Large Duckweed - do they grow down like Frogbit? I hate having to trim those guys every week.

Hiya, sorry I don't have any bacopas. Don't even kniw what they look like. The Large duckweed only have short roots. In my raok photo, I flipped one of them upside down to show this. Let me know if you're interested and I can bring a sandwich bag portion for you.

Definitely nothing to trim on these guys. The roots do not extend past what is in the photo. Its actually the preferred floater if you don't want to deal with long roots like frogbit and the water lettuce, or regular duckweed.

Music to my ears! Sandwich bag for 3 cholla pieces? I can meet (same place) anytime next week. I'm also doing a trimming this weekend and can bring some items - feel free to discard if you don't like.

aquabid always makes me a bit nervous. hearing horror stories with livestock purchases but i guess cholla wood wouldnt be the same. thanks for the tip!
