Sorry Niko, I can't host. The only tank I have set up is in a church library... and it's seen better days.
And I don't know about those snails yet. I'm not sure how I'm getting to Atlanta. It takes 11 days to walk, according to Google Maps. Driving is no cheaper than flying. If I fly, I'll probably only take one carry on.
Nicolay how would I join this group, I live in Fort Worth and have a few tanks. Just started adding CO2 to one of them with your mini filter as a diffuser and it works like a charm. Really neat idea. Just finishing the restoring of a vintage 4g metal frame.
anyone planning on bringing blyxa japonica? if so, that would be cool as im looking for some right now.
i have the following that i can bring:
hygro polysperma green
red cabomba (thinking its probably cabomba furcata)
echinodorus bolivianus (aka E. latifolius)
ludwiga repens narrow
Stuck - I have a couple of stems of Blyxa I can spare. I also have some Rotala Vietnam, a little Limnophila Aromatica and Ludwigia Cuba along with the old standards - Bacopa C., Prosperinica Palustris (Mermaid Weed - Nikos favorite) and a few Crypts. I plan on emptying one of my grow out tanks.
I am looking for at this time is Rotala Macandra if someone can spare a stem or 2.
I will have wine, soft drinks and munchies so noone needs to bring anything except spare plants if you have any.
I am trying to come we decided to put new siding on the garage. It was a new addition to our home in the 60's so it was deteriorating before our eyes.
99.9% sure I will be there. Here is why I am posting I have baby Brigg's snail that are golden in color if anyone is interested. These normally don't eat plants but they can mess up a planted tank. So if you have other tanks they really are fun and cute to watch. Just let me know.
Thanks for the comments. I was happy to host the club meeting and thought it was a great turnout for such short notice.
I also picked up a few different plants this time and plan to rearrange my 20L sitting against the window to try to grow them out a little. I can forsee a small glosso lawn with some red/purple Ludwigia to go along with my Blyxa (at least for a couple of weeks or so).
Mike it was so nice to meet both of you, just a great time all around.
To all of attendees it was nice to put some faces to name. Thank You for inviting me. I have so much to learn. Shrimp are doing great.
Nico...lights lets talk.
