If you would be interested in this sale, please let me know by posting. I want to see what people want to buy before I break all the tanks down.

I wouldn't have broken down by tanks until April, but my pet bunny needs to be spayed, so this will pay for her surgery! She gets precedence over the tanks ;)

Thank you

Various anubias, most are A. nana.
I think a fair sale price is $3 for the nice ones and $1 for the couple that have just one leaf? They all are losing their old leafs but almost all of them have lots of new leafs.

This is the driftwood I have. I have a couple more pieces aside from these.
I'm thinking $4 for the medium size pieces and $1 for the little pieces. There is an iphone there for reference.

There was a kuhli loach hiding in the wood when I pulled it out!

Next are the crypts. I forget what all the species are....
Is $3 per crypt plant reasonable? Little attached babies go with the mother plant.
Dwarf sag plants can be $1 each.

I have a few C. balsanae. They grow so slowly for me, but I've had them for about a year and they were lovely over the summer. Nice long leafs.
And I think the wide-leaf crypts are C. pontefolia or something along those lines. Please excuse the mulm that got kicked up onto their leafs/

A few C. parva and about a dozen dwarf sag plants.

About a dozen C. wendtii. They grow great for me.

I also have about 6 small java ferns. Their leafs have brown spots. $1 for two. They are free floating. HOWEVER, one of the pieces of driftwood above has about 3 java ferns attached to it

ALL plants are kept in a VERY low light tank. Water is ph 8.4, very hard, temp is 80 degrees.

Livestock are up next.

1 male kribensis $2 He looked magnificent until my female beat him up last month!

1 neon tetra. Free. He's rather big and has been through EVERYTHING. I neglected his tank once and he survived. I'm so surprised at how hardy he is.

1 black neon tetra with a crooked spine. I bought him that way ;) Free.

4 kuhli loaches $1 each.

pygmy cories. $3 each. I think I have 4 of them. I havent seen them in a while so... maybe I have 4 ;)

Any ramshorn snails I have. Free.

A baby brown bristlenose. Free.

1 adult female brown bristlenose, shortfin. $1. Very hardy girl.

This is a platy, under 1", it was sold to me as a teacup platy off Aquabid. Pale yellow with blue eyes. Free, since it doesn't look as vibrant or healthy as it used to be... but by all means adopt it and feed it up!

This is a hefty piece of driftwood with java fern well established on it. The java fern itself looks not so good. Java fern just doesn't ever ever ever grow well for me. Anyways, $4 for this heavy medium piece of driftwood.

Subwassertang. This grows well for me. It is kept at 62 degrees, very low light, and it is mixed with a little willow moss and java moss. There are RCS shrimplets in the subwassertang, or there were last week.
There are 2 larger shrimp in the subwassertang. You can see a male on an oak leaf above. There was one juvenile too.

The two shrimp will be free to whomever takes my two bristlenose plecos!

The subwassertang can be $2 for a healthy golfball portion (when squeezed of water). If there are shrimplets in the clump you can have them!
And remember, there is some moss mixed with the subwassertang. And ramshorn snails, maybe.

I also have 3 jungle vals that recently melted because I moved them around. Leafs are short, less than 12", and a little longer, just over 12." $1 each.

Anubias, crypts, dwarf sag all sound interesting. Is the round leaf plant an anubias as well? Please let me know what isn't spoken for yet. I am in the Ithaca area and would be more than happy to pick things up. =)
