I did a lot of pruning today and took stuff to the lfs.

Then I came home and started to rearrange rather than Do a quick water change. I will ship the radican sword to you Monday. And, some red ludwigia and a couple shoots of that "possible plant". You will probably find a couple of decent Wisteria in there as well.

Are you home all day or do I need to mark it to deliver without a signature?

Megan,
http://www.badmanstropicalfish.com/species-gallery/gallery_main.html/photo-gallery/displayimage.php?album=184&pos= 57

The radican is the one coming to you. it is the one with all the tiny bubbles on the leaf.

you can see a little sprig of wisteria 9the one or two i am sending are much bigger) in the lower left -- between the microsword and the java moss. you can see bigger sprigs in the photos near the one i linked you to.

oh, that clump of stuff floating in the upper right corner of pic 57 is the other "stuff" I am wrapping up with the radican and sending along.

Megan,
Stuff is leaving today. Don't let the weight shock you. Mostly packing and moist stuff so that the plants do not dry out.

Some people are like Slinkies. Not really good for anything, but you still can't help but smile when you see one tumble down the stairs.

Hey Sully, Plants came this morning. They look great, like you had just took them out of the water.I loved the packing job, they weren't lacking moisture at all. fish were so excited about something new in the tank, they all took their turn tasteing and nipping at them. Its amazing what a few plants can make a tank so much more full. and the red ludwigia puts the right amount of color with all the green. I just love them all. Thanks allot, you were very generous!

megan,
glad you like it. i prune periodically (every week) the rotalla indicia is getting thick. next bunches will be via mail--lol. just wanted to make sure that this stuff got there without an issue given the temps at night.

Once we get into warmer weather let me know if you want anything. Do you have CO2? How many watts per gallon?

I am getting a ton of baby amazon swords right now. from a plant that is a monster. I will send you some if you want.

I don't do co2, wish I could but not in the budget especially since ive gotten the saltwater bug.
My lighting is still pretty low, i think its 1 and half watt per gallon. Im gonna upgrade a little but not sure when. I have a amazon sword right now. its slow growing but its doing ok. everything else I have, mostly stem plants are growing really well too.
If these plants do ok in the next couple weeks, then I may see if you have any more red ludwigia.
If they don't survive my low lights, then Id rather see them go to someone who can keep them alive. Im pretty sure they will do ok.
thanks sully

meg,
i also have a lot of that "possible plant". even sent you stem or two of it i think. I got ludwigia to grow with low lights by letting the substrate mature. it tended to lose a lot of the lowest level of leaves. but, other than that it did great. That and i always kept it from spreading out over the top of the tank.
