Default Plants for the February Meeting

Since we are setting up a Natural Aquarium for Sean at the February meeting (about two weeks from today), we are going to need some plant donations Here is a short list of plants that should work well in Seans's lower light, non-CO2 tank:

Alternanthera reineckii
Anubias species
Aponogeton species
Bacopa species
Bolbitis heudelotii
Ceratophyllum demersum (Hornwort)
Ceratopteris thalictroides (Water Sprite) - Allen
Cryptocoryne species
Echinodorus species (smaller types like E. tenellus, E. bolivianus, etc.)
Egeria densa (Anacharis)
Hemianthus micranthemoides (Pearlgrass) - Renee
Heteranthera zosterifolia (Stargrass)
Hygrophila species
Hydrocotyle leucocephala
Juncus repens
Lobelia cardinalis 'Small Form'
Microsorum species (Java Ferns)
Mosses -
Myriophyllum mattogrossense
Nymphea lotus 'red' (Red Tiger Lotus) - Allen
Peacock Moss - brynnhilde
Potamageton species
Rotala rotundifolia - Allen
Sagittaria subulata (Dwarf Sag)
Vals

I'm sure I forgot to mention a few but I have had good experience with these plants in lower light, non-CO2 tanks. I would like to start a list of what plants people can bring so we don't all bring the same thing and I will list who is bringing what beside the plant name

Don and Melissa have suggested we add a handful of crushed coral or dolomite to Sean's tank when we set it up.

Would anyone be able to bring a small amount of either to the meeting so Sean doesn't have to purchase a whole bag?

I can bring some CC. I can probably bring some java fern as well.
I'm 90% sure that I'll be there, but if someone else wanted to bring some as a backup, that would be great.

I can bring some riccia, but I don't know how well it would do (I'm not familiar with the Natural Aquarium method). The quantity won't be enough to make a great covering on a 20 gallon and I don't know if you have anything to attach it to.

I can also bring some cherry shrimp if anyone wants some.

For us, cherry shrimp have multiplied like crazy. I've even thought of selling some online like on eBay.

If anyone would like to trade some other variety of shrimp, like a half or full dozen, I might be interested. I like a bit of variety in my tanks, and shrimp are good cleaners in the tank.

I would suggest taking Bolbitis off the list. IMO, this is not a low-light/low-tech plant. I would advise against riccia as well, though maybe once we get the tank setup it will be OK but I highly doubt it.

I can bring some narrow leaf java fern and maybe a golfball size clump of taiwan moss, though if brynnhilde is bringing peacock moss I'd rather not have the two mix. I might also be able to bring some Anubias nana depending on how saintly I'm feeling...I'm quite stingy with my Anubias.

My biggest concern right now is hardscape and I don't know how people 'scape these natural tanks. If I find some good stuff before the meeting at Mr. Mulch I'll bring it.
