SUPER HUGE MEGA GIGANTOR SPLEDIFEROUS Aquabid auction/Trade :D ....wow, that was fun LOL

http://www.aquabid.com/cgi-bin/auction/auction.cgi?liveplants&1096856674

Ok, why so good you say?...well, take a look at the goods that are in it and see if you can come up with better words to describe it!!!!

Ludwigia sp. Cuba: 10 stems
Broad Leaf Stellata: 4 stems
Aromaticoides: 6 stems
Petite nana: 1
Taiwan moss: small clump
Lobelia: 3 (emersed)
Crypt. Wendti Mi Oya:2 (emersed)
Crypt Petchii: 2 (emersed)

Why am I clearing so much? I want to try and grow some new plants so I am basically clearing out a tank and only keeping 2 small stems of each for potential later use.

I do however have a list of crypts and swords that I am trying to get a hold of. IF YOU HAVE ANY THEM and want to work out either a complete TRADE or partial auction credit against your bid, contact me via PM to arrange something PRIOR AND ONLY PRIOR to the auction's end :) Obviously some trade plants have higher value than others ;)

Echinodorus `Apart´
Echinodorus `Devils Eye´
Echinodorus `Digital Art´
Echinodorus `Gabrielii´
Echinodorus `Harbich´
Echinodorus `Golden Flame´
Echinodorus `Red Flame´

Gomer,
You should come down to the annual San Diego Tropical Fish Society Auction in November (Second Sunday of the month). This club has a number of hard core aquatic gardeners and some lovely and often very rare plants come up. There was nearly 400 items last year, and anyone can bid and buy (just like COAST).
By the way, I was high bidder for the cuba, it is gorgeous! Thanks for bringing it on Sunday :)
Best, Barb

Glad you like it! I figured only a couple MIGHT know what the plant is...in the bag, it didn't look all that special :D I'll going to try and bring interesting plants to each coast meeting...perhaps we can get some people interested in the "finer arts" of planted tanks...Java moss has more uses than just breeding LOL

Ive been wanting to go to the mega auction, but something always comes up :( This year, I will be going to the AGA conference so it looks like I have to wait another 6 months :(

The MEGA FISH AUCTION in San Diego is on November 14th, 6 PM in room 101 of the Casa del Prado in Balboa Park, San Diego (next to the San Diego Zoo) It is free to bid and buy, no registration required. You walk through the door and get a number, which you hold up if you want to bid. Easy! Free to attend, you do not have to be a member of the club. No idea if any shrimp will come through, you just never know what ends up there! Here is the club website www.sandiegotropicalfish.com The info line is 619-281-FISH and you can also email me for a map with directions, more info, etc at [email protected] I will be posting a notice about this auction closer to the actual date too. This auction is a yearly event, and gets hundreds of items and a room full of people :)
Best, Barb
