I've grown tired of my 55 gallon setup. I feel like I've been neglecting the fish, the plants and just the overall maintenance of the tank. The fish still seem happy as evidenced by my BN plecos repeatedly breeding and the plants are doing well enough considering I rarely fertilize or prune them anymore.

I'm not pricing anything, but if you want to give me a donation to go towards my next project, that would be cool. Give me what you think is fair.

PM me if you want to come by and check out what I have. I definitely don't want to ship any fish, but I might ship plants.

Fish
[STRIKE]13 Glowlight tetras
2 Dwarf Flame Gouramis
7 Columbian Tetras[/STRIKE]
10-12 BN plecos left (keeping the breeding pair...for now)

Plants
Various crypts
[STRIKE]Temple[/STRIKE] - withered away, threw it out
[STRIKE]Amazon sword[/STRIKE] - also withered, threw it out
Anubias (I could be convinced to cut off a chunk or two, but keeping most of it)
One wisteria plant left

I'm keeping the following: filter, powerhead, inline heater, driftwood, rocks.

The aquarium itself is beat to hell, with TONS of scratches and a decent sized crack that I messily patched back in 2001. It's been holding for 11 years...I believe I got the tank back in 1995. If somebody wants it for whatever reason, feel free to take it home when I'm done with the breakdown process.

The stand is a decent AGA pine stand, I'd like to get some money out of it. The canopy is a hastily crafted, yet functional piece and really doesn't have any value. I'll be keeping the light.

Awesome I'm waiting for a DPG sale and then I will be setting up two 20 L shrimp tanks so I should be able to find a home for at least 10 of your BN's :)

BTW your redonkulous grow plant looks to be like wysteria but I can't tell from the pic I'd need a closer shot

How soon are you looking to have the fish re-homed

Only you and GraphicGr8s have expressed interest in the plecos. I'm noticing more and more tiny babies hiding in the wisteria.
Awesome I def could rehouse a few of them for you I have a new tank that's cycled and has been supporti g shrimp and is now starting to grow some of the dreaded a word so there should be food in there for them.

classes start the 7th so I should be in the Tampa area quite a bit more frequently again how much are you looking for them or are you just looking for good homes?

Alright, just let me know when you can stop by.

I'm not really asking any set dollar amount, but if you wanted to make a donation to help fund my next project, I'd definitely appreciate it.

Still have a lot of plecos and the rest of the fish too. I might take a bunch of plants and all fish but the plecos to Marine Warehouse for credit in the next week.

Speak up if you want something!
Call them first to make sure they want them. Better than stressing them out only to have to put them back in your tank.

I called and the guy said to give them a call back on the day I want to take them in. He sounded like he'd be OK with taking whatever I had, plus some plants too.
