For Sale or Trade "local"
 
I thought I'd start a thread that would be easier for us here in Hawaii to get together to trade or sell. Anyway, I was gifted some Blyxa Japonica from Nokturnalkid when I started my tank. Needless to say, it is flourishing well, maybe a bit to well. If anyone locally wants it LMK I got chee-yoke. Free. If no takers I'll bring it in to one of the LFS and see if they want it or want to trade for some fish.

I could be interested in a couple of plants :-) Looks like moderate light requirements, what does it like for temp. We don't have AC so my tanks in the 80deg range. drop me an email ben(at)oceanben.com or give me a call 782-1734 and I can come pick up ...

My tanks run warmer than that. No worries whatsoever.

I got 10+ stems of Lagarosiphon Madagascariensis free or trade if you got something to trim. Lmk, pulling it out today.

Re: For Sale or Trade "local"
 
Ok, so at some time soon, I'll be doing a semi re-scape and pulling up some of my HG. I've never done this yet and am kinda apprehensive about it. What would you recommend for the best way to uproot the HG with little to no damage?

Just pull it out of places that you don't want it. If the rosette is connected to somewhere that you don't wanna pull it out of, then just snip right there.

Re: For Sale or Trade "local"
 
Hey, I've had a pretty tough start to the "re-do" of my tank, but I'm finally ready to start planting!!!
Just wondering if anyone has these plants I'm looking for, I'd much rather get it from you guys than a pet store....

-H.C.
-Jungle vals
-Ludwigia Cuba
-Crypt Becketii
-Rotala Rotundifolia
-Utricularia Graminifolia
or
-java ferns

Let me know if you have any of these, I'd love to take them off your hands! =) (or if you know any cheap stores that carry them)
THANKS!

Re: For Sale or Trade "local"
 
also waiting here for anyone who's giving away HG

Travis.808 07-31-2009 02:00 PM

Re: For Sale or Trade "local"
 
db8 I'll let you know when the HG is ready should be mid-late August.

Re: For Sale or Trade "local"
 
If anyone is looking for subwassertang, christmas moss, java fern 'narrow leaf', elatine triandra, rotala sp. 'green', or e. tennellus.....Let me know. I seem to end up dumping my trimmings of all of the above plants. I'd rather do trades for some stuff I don't have.

PM me if interested.

Travis.808 08-02-2009 03:12 AM

Re: For Sale or Trade "local"
 
I may have to hit you up for some moss when I get around to the Manzanita portion of my tank. I'll pm you when that time comes and hopefully you'll need to trim around that time.

Re: For Sale or Trade "local"
 
I have some jungle vals growing in a 55 gallon plastic drum at my mom's :)

I am also able to collect some plants from the wild::cool: Regular vals (dunno what species, there are in the pics of my tank in the thread in this forum) and Bacopa monnieri. I also remember collecting some corkscrew val somewhere when I was younger...need to ask my stepdad to see if he remembers.

Oh yeah, I have 100+ Nimbochromis fuscotaeniatus fry :shock:, so if you know anyone looking for any...

S-KGray 08-17-2009 05:52 PM

Re: For Sale or Trade "local"
 
Also I am looking for nice, healthy sailfin mollies. Black preferably, but will consider other colors.

nokturnalkid 08-17-2009 08:42 PM

Re: For Sale or Trade "local"
 
Got some R. Colorata and some L. Aromatica(running a lil high on the nitrates so it's staying a bit green) if anyone wants to trade.

db8 08-24-2009 11:05 AM

Re: For Sale or Trade "local"
 
just got a free 5.5gal tank with lights and substrate. want to buy a mini canister filter. also looking for dwarf hairgrass and/or HC and some other moss (singapore moss) to get the tree look. thanks!

Felf808 08-24-2009 11:32 PM

Re: For Sale or Trade "local"
 
A zoomed 501 would be perfect for that tank

i called petco for a price check, $68 @[email protected] it should be just around $30-40. i could get the rapids mini canister filter from ebay at roughly $40 shipped. any local place selling the zoomed 501 for cheap? i don't mind buying used also, so i'm searching local forums hehe.

Re: For Sale or Trade "local"
 
Amazon.com and Ebay also have the Zoomed 501

db8 08-25-2009 12:30 PM

Re: For Sale or Trade "local"
 
any difference between tom rapids and zoomed 501 (size etc)? i notice from the pics that tom rapids has more biological media and i guess no carbon filter and zoomed has fewer biological media to leave space for the carbon filter. they both cost roughly the same shipped.

nokturnalkid 08-25-2009 04:25 PM

Re: For Sale or Trade "local"
 
Pet's discount has the zoomed, not sure on price though. The zoomed is a little better built than the toms, imo. More flow also. Oh yeah, aquascapes has the zoomed too but I would guess it might be a bit pricey there.

S-KGray 08-25-2009 04:43 PM

Re: For Sale or Trade "local"
 
Yeah, I know we always have tough choices here in Hawaii, high local prices or high shipping costs. :p

What I have decided is:

1. Try to get good used stuff cheap locally (like on this forum)

2. Get online if price + shipping saves you alot over getting locally

3. Buy locally if online price + shipping will save you only a few bucks (support local business)

db8 08-25-2009 05:50 PM

Re: For Sale or Trade "local"
 
yup, lurking the local forums for a used one hehe

edit: lucky ^^v found one on craigslist used for $15 and it's in ewa beach too. gonna pick it up on my way home today.

Re: For Sale or Trade "local"
 
If anyone is still looking for a co2 setup I found this on CL today. Come to think of it, this prolly belongs to someone on here. :biggrin1:

The Tom Rapids Mini Filter is known to break at the input and output spouts on the housing(I've broken one myself). I can say that my zoomed 501 is extremely sturdy and durable.

This is the cheapest place I could find (price + shipping). Put in the code 7GGT5G for 5% off.

Yeah, I have been looking at that, you guys think that is a good deal? I'm waiting on my brother to let me know if he wants to sell me his CO2 tank that he has for filling paintball tanks.

yeah, is that a good deal? i just might get that, if S&K isn't taking it. anything we should watch out from it?

Travis.808 08-26-2009 04:33 PM

Re: For Sale or Trade "local"
 
I'd ask what kinda regulator he's selling and find out why he suggests getting it hydro tested IE is there a possible leak you should know about. other than that seems pretty cheap.

Does anyone have Eleocharis Belem or Eleocharis Parvula? I need a lot...

anyone have glosso? is it an easier substitute to HC?

Glosso is more invasive and tends to attract algae more than HC so I wouldn't recommend it if you think HC is hard to deal with

db8 08-29-2009 04:07 PM

Re: For Sale or Trade "local"
 
oh i see. i have no idea on their difference as i haven't seen them side by side. if anyone's familiar with the Aquascapes store, is HC the one on the ~18G tank they have on the corner next to their emersed plants and is glosso the new tank at the window (currently starting and growing algae badly)?

Felf808 08-29-2009 06:27 PM

Re: For Sale or Trade "local"
 
I know the tank next to the emersed plants has HC in it but I'm not sure about the other one. You can tell the difference between glosso and HC by the size: HC leaves are about the size of a grain of rice and makes really thick mats/mounds vs Glosso leaves might be 2-3 times that and has very visible runners the creep along that gravel.

Re: For Sale or Trade "local"
 
Yes, that's HC growing in the tank in the corner of Aquascapes. Try asking if you could buy a portion from it.

db8 08-29-2009 11:24 PM

Re: For Sale or Trade "local"
 
thanks! haha, i doubt they'd agree to that but maybe i should try. been wondering why they don't grow those themselves since foreground/ground covers are very popular and in demand...

b15ser 08-29-2009 11:58 PM

Re: For Sale or Trade "local"
 
A few months ago, I asked for rotala 'butterfly' when he was growing it out in that same tank, and I got a few stems before it went on sale. I'm growing out a large patch of HC emmersed to sell in the future :cool:

Keeping with the thread, anyone got Tonina sp. to sell/trade? I already have 'Madeira', 'Belem', and 'Fluviatilis'.

db8 08-31-2009 08:55 PM

Re: For Sale or Trade "local"
 
let me know when you're gonna sell ur HC. i want some. my dwarf hair grass won't be shipping til this weekend.
