Some time this week, I'm removing about 50% of the plants in two 155G's. Avail to anyone that drops in. Vals, Caboma, Hygrophilia. I'm shipping an order to Vix in an effort to repay her for my debts... Bill

U know bill I know I said I was good on plants but you've got some I don't have. I might drop by again this weekend to hang out and pick up some if u still have some. I've got plenty of vails and hygros but I would like some variety. If you haven't cleared them out yet let me know :-)

It's really a community that we build online. The hobby has grown leaps and bounds since the internet. Back in the 60's and 70's it was hit and miss with some fish because you could not find info on them in the local library.

Vix.. us Old Timers know all too well what it was like "back in the day"... Axelrod's encyclopedia and TFH bi-monthly mag was pretty much the only source for information.....But, back in the early 70's, I could visit 7 or 8 LFS's all within a 20 minute drive!.. And since they were all mom & pop, ya never knew what you might stumble across! Bill

Vix.. was there enough?...LOL... I crammed in as much as I could and only hoe'd out 1/2 of one of the tanks. Still a lot of house-cleaning to do! Bill

Bill... Those vals I got from you are doing great and reproducing faster than any other plant I have. They keep shooting runners every direction and have grown some nice roots. The cabomba is growing well but its a little strange. One week the heads will be redish, the next they'll be a lime green. They also don't seem to produce much of a root ball. Only a few roots here and there. Not sure if its normal for it to grow 6"-8" a week and only a few roots.

Thanks again for the plants.
