How Could I get rid of my plants?

Hey guys I have a 72 bow filled with great plants... stems, huge, big, medium, small java fern, tons of anubias, etc... I basically don't want these plants anymore... can anyone tell me how I can get $$$ for these plants? I live in Oregon and can travel to Portland, salem, eugene, washington, anywhere around Portland OR basically...

I can trade them in for store credit at a local fish shop but thought I would check here first... I just want a really clean looking modern status tank... such as the blue discus amano tank like this...

my tanks kind of wild looking... you can look up posts of my 72 bow... anyways...

just thought I would ask.

People often want complete tank starter packages of plants. If you list them as a bundle suitable for 50-100 gallon tanks, I'll bet you can get rid of them quickly. Of course you won't make much money - for that, store credit is the best route, in my experience.

swap and shop here? I'll have to check it out... i have A LOT of java fern tho... A LOT... but if I were to do this... I might just wanna do angels of one kind (would need to get rid of 3 black/silver) I have some roseline sharks too... ahh... got a great setup for a wild looking tank... maybe I just keep it... but an easy setup like the one I showed you guys does look pretty damn clean and nice... simple/clean looking is kinda what I want and I think that layout is very clean looking... I want discus but I don't wanna have to change the water every freaking day... if I kept my 72 and did a similar lay out... glosso... one piece of drift wood with thin leafed java fern and the few stems in the back do you think I could get away with a weekly 50% water change? if I only had like 5 discus for my 72 and some rummy nose... can you keep shrimp w discus?

The daily water changes are for young discus that are being feed a lot while they are growing the fastest. With adult discus, you don't have to feed as much and you can back off the water changes. 50% weekly is fine with adult or sub adult discus. A lot of people keep amano shrimp with discus, but some people have discus that will eat any shrimp they try to put in with them.

If you do want to do angels, I would trade some of my juvenile gold angelfish for some of your plants.
