    Default assorted floating plants

    i just scooped them out of my tank and they need to go in the next couple days before they go bad. they are FREE. if no one comes tomorrow i'll move them to a larger container so they can get better light but they will not last long out of descent lighting


    Water lettuce

    duck weed


    salvina natans

    I just went halves on a very large plant order with a friend that will be arriving over the next couple of days. After all is said and done, I'll see what I need and maybe jump at this opportunity.

    what are you looking for in particular. I keep getting new tanks and I keep needing new plants my self. I know a guy that will ship up a very large (trust me) order of plants for $25. You will not be disappointed, I assure you. In the meantime, I might have a couple stems I can let go depending on what you are looking for.

    i'm not too stuck on anything in particlar. what do you have? although i would like some Ludwigia or ratola. mostly i'd just like to diversify
    i have to trade: guppy grass(i wouldn't add to a show tnk but it's good for a tank that doesn't have appropriate plat lights)
    red and brown crypts(different sizes)
    limnophila sessiflora
    willow hygro
    i can pinch off some small peices of my java fern windelov
    some very small plantlets of needle leaf java fern which i understand is hard to come by
    bacopa monieri and one other one i don't know the name for
    a mystery plant i have yet to identify. it has long pointed leaves that are really pretty. it grows and is built like a bacopa so it may be another species of that.

    also, what would come in the plant package for $25? possibly quite interested.

    here is a picture of the guys tank that sell the plant packages. I found him on gta aquaria that you led me to. I tried 2 different sellers on that site, Calmer, Jimmyjim and this guy and this one is by far the cheapest and tripled the others portions. I have gotten 2 shipments for myself and 1 for a friend already.

    you will get an assortment of whatever he clips that week. I'm sure he'll take a specific request if you ask. here is his plant list

    You have probably seen his posts already.
