As of now for low lighting I'll have about .......
(5) Java Ferns
(5) Bronze Crypt Wendtii
Guppygrass (man this grows like crazy)
Rotala Indica (rotundifolia)

More plants but they will require more lighting (R. Magenta and a few others)

I could use some glosso and maybe some Clover if anyone has some to spare. Also looking for some endlers. See ya Saturday.

I would love 2-3 stems of the R. magenta! I had it for a long time then it just died off when I changed my fert routine. Pretty sure I will have some excess Guppy Grass as well and Maybe some Najas indica. Pretty sure the N. indica will grow without CO2.

I think Rob said he could bring some Glosso and I have some Marseila sp. in my 10g that is just sitting there! You are more than welcome to grab some

I also have some very sad looking Rotala wallichii in the 75g I would be willing to part with. I'll probably keep a few stems for one of the other tanks. I just can't get this stuff to grow well!

I saw the R. Wallachi and with my plant doctoring skills you might as well feed it to the snails. lol. I may bring the Magenta over early so I don't kill it!

That would be awesome. I could definitely use all the help I can get with the dosing and fertilizer stuff. I am trying to learn as much as possible. There is just so much to learn and so little time to do it in. Thanks, Jim

That's what clubs and forums are for...You get to learn from other folks mistakes and hopefully not make the same ones Most everyone will be able to impart some knowledge to make it a little easier for you.

You can also trade plants for plants, fish for plants, shrimp for plants or whatever. I usually have plenty of plants to spare so if they die on you the first time, I will probably have more to spare in the very near future Plus, if I know you are looking for something, I can probably find it for you either in the For Sale/Trade forum here or on Aquabid!

You can check out my 1.5wpg 10g tank to see a low light, non-CO2 setup grows while you're here. I don't do much with that tank except feed the fish and top off the water. That is the beauty of low light tanks

Bring your questions to the meeting and we'll do our best to answer them. You can also post in this forum and in the separate forums on this site. The Fertilizing forum will give you plenty of answers to your questions, I'm sure

Again, if you need directions to my place, PM or e-mail me.

Hopefully I can get it growing better in one of the other tanks. I've never been able to grow it well in the 75g. It has always looked like it did when you saw it, except in the past it was algae covered. It's not quite there yet I think I'm gonna give it a try in the 30g and see how it does. Now I just have to remember to move it before it totally dies off!

What plants are you keeping in the tubs? That would be a big help in determining light needs

I knew you would want that, but i couldnt find what they were. I have purple water iris, azolla,and 25+water lettuce and some duck weed. I am not so worried about keeping the duck weed, but the lettues and water iris.

If you can't keep the Duckweed, you better give up keeping plants

I would think 2wpg would be plenty for the Water Iris and Water Lettuce though I really don't have any experience with pond plants. IF not, you can always get another fixture to put on top of the tank! I'm sure one of the guys here probably has an extra one around. If not here, maybe GCAS folks do. Never hurts to ask!

You can also try posting in the Planted Pond forum. I'm sure someone with more pond experience will see it there.

I've actually managed to exterminate all of the duckweed in my high tech aquarium. I guess it needs mostly still water on the surface.
