Default Free Bag O' Shrimp

I hope this is in the correct section.

I am looking for plant clippings of all types. I will be testing many of the species i carry for their potential to eat plants. I am willing to trade a bag of 10 Asian Algae eating shrimp to anyone who will send me an assortment of their clippings for testing.

Email me your list of clippings to make a trade. Or just post them up here.

Mike

Hey Mike, I'm looking for a couple Caridina gracilirostris, around 3 to 5. Do you think I could trade some of my clippings for those? By the way, there is a For Sale and Trade forum, which this thread will probably be moved to.


I have:

Rotala sp. "Green"
Rotala sp. "Colorata"
Rotala macranda "Green"
Blyxa japonica
Bacopa caroliniana
Bacopa sp. "Colorata"
Hygrophila corymbosa angustifolia
and one or two offshoots of Lindernia sp. India

This is a great deal for folks. I would jump on it if I had some plants to trim.

Mike of freshwaterinverts.com is an excellent shrimp keeper, breeder, and seller.

Welcome to the Forum Mike! I'm glad you found it.

Thanks John N,

I am trying to get many new details for a book on aquarium shrimp. I need to do all of this testing first hand to make my info valid. I get feedback from my customers on things that happen but need first hand info.


I need to say that for this deal i will pay shipping on my end so you must pay yours on your end. So it boils down to a little time pruning and about 5 dollars for the shipping of your plants equals a bag of shrimp to your door.

Hello Pedro,

Sounds good. I also must mention that I will need all plants sent to be labeled. My plant ID skills are less then satisfactory. I have a feeling I will be schooled by this forum witch is great!
