That's interesting. No Tropica here, as you said. In warmer weather, I'd be happy to send you something. How about some Taiwan moss? What are you in need of. Usually, a Global Priority mail envelope arrives within 3 days to a centrally located town, from the USA. Small envelopes are USD4.50 and larger ones USD9.00, the last time I looked.
Now tell us some more about that "V8" "retro" aquarium of yours ;-)
