I finally got a few of the plants I`ve been hunting for. I got a huge mat of HC, some narrow leaf Java fern, glosso......All thanks to a kind soul who sent it to me for free.

Yes we Canucks have Tropica plants but not many retailers will sell them so we`re not much further ahead, and given the population differences of Canada and the U.S, we have very few hobbyists to trade plants with. This is a big score for me!

Just thaught I`d share my joy.

Nice! I had to get glosso off aquabid (it was nearly dead by the time it arrived and it all faded away shortly after).

I was waiting until spring to order a mat of HC from aquabid as well. $25.00 USD for a 4" x 2" mat. Does that sound about worth it? Hopefully it holds up through shipping.

So, good find for you, you lucky devil:-) It is harder for us plant and even fish wise.

That reminds me Christine, I checked about the heat pack, and my little buddy didn`t have any. I`m going to pick up some fish from another guy I know on Saturday (as long as the lady of the house agrees) and I`m sure he`ll have some. I`ll be spending a couple brown bills so maybe he`ll give me a couple. I`ll keep you posted.

No rush:-) I'm just glad that I can get some after a long search. The longer you wait, the better the weather will be. It was darn near blizzarding the the other day...

Sounds neat. Do you have pictures? I dont know what HC is. I am imagining some sort of sod for aquariums.
Filter and heater $80
65 gallon aquarium $280
Gazing at your Apistogramma for hours on end.....
PRICELESS!!!
