I'm coming and I'm totally antsy waiting for it to be time to come. I'll be cleaning/pruning my tanks this week and will bring whatever excess I have. I have at least 10 crypt spiralis plants, Myriophyllum mattograssense, Bacopa australis, Ludwigia arcuata, L repens, a good size Kleiner bar that's taking up too much room in my 29, Ranunculus inundates, and whatever ferns and other stems are taking up too much space. Is anyone interested in floaters? I have red-root floater & frogbit I can bring.

I could definitely use some mts!

I'd like some ramshorn snails. I lost the last of mine a while back between the hunting of my loaches and bettas. Now I have a couple of safe tanks they should do well in.

I have plenty of frogbit to share, zer0zax, so no worries there.

I trimmed my 29 last night and I have over 50 nodes of Ranunculus so I hope someone is interested in it. Also trimmed several nice pieces of Anubias nana petite and got the Kleiner bar out (soil substrate but very little mess thankfully). Darn sword had recently doubled in height to about 10" tall after being 5" tall for over a year. One tank down, six to go.

Well dang...

I am volunteering Saturday afternoon and can't make it. And I wanted a piece of driftwood being offered too. I really don't need any more plants (well, maybe one) but I was looking forward to meeting all you folks there. Sort of sad...:(

We will miss you E-cubed, that stinks! Don't feel bad though, I have a good feeling this won't be the only plant swap! I still go fishing a lot, and more drift wood will definitely accumulate. I will start looking for the smaller detailed pieces though, no more plain logs. When the next plant swap comes around, I will hook you up for sure!

At least I am volunteering for a good cause... beer!

Grrrrrrr, I've been fighting a cold since Sunday evening and it's showing no sign of abating. I really hoped it would be letting up by now since I've been looking forward to the swap for so long. I may have to send my plants to the meet with Robert.

Anyone have a good remedy for a common head cold? Y'know, runny nose, stuffy head, occasionally sneezing fits and generally feeling lousy. The cold pills I've been using aren't working very well at keeping my runny nose under control and it's driving me crazy. Nyquill is great, but it renders me unconscious so I can only take it at night. Of course I don't know that it actually clears my symptoms, but I'm not awake so I don't care. ;)

Thanks, I'll give 'em a try. I really jinxed myself last week, I said I'd been lucky and managed to avoid colds for years - figures, right? I should have kept my mouth shut.

The meds I had sitting around when I went looking in my cupboard had expired in 2006 and they don't make the ones I used anymore. It's totally futile to try and make a reasoned selection standing in the isle of a store when you feel rotten.

Big glass of hot Grand marnia followed by sleep.

I'm fighting to get over the same thing, still have a lingering cough.
Wouldn't bother me if you came with a cold.

You might try Vicks Dayquill, it seems to work for me and I'm not a Zombie when I take it.

I'd feel better about going if I could get my #)*& nose to stop dripping. I don't feel bad about being at work since nearly everyone here also have this bug. I've been sleeping as much as I can and did I started feeling more energetic yesterday. What did I do with the sudden energy? I trimmed a bunch more plants for the plant swap. ;)

I think Dayquill did make me drowsy. I know I've tried it before and something about it didn't work for me. It's been too long though I can't remember . . .

I just got over that same stuffy head/cold thing, I don't care if you come with a cold. I remember feeling like total crap when I had it, not fun at all! No one cares if you have to blow your nose a lot either, just part of being human. Hopefully you can make it, but don't stress if you can't! Hurry up and get well;)

So, just to let everyone know, the plants I am bringing are from a tank where a fish is showing signs of a protazoan parasite. This has been going on for weeks, I have medicated the tank repeatedly with both Ich Attack and Maracide, and still the one single fish has recurring spots, whereas the other 30+ fish are unaffected.

I seriously doubt that the parasite will be spread through the plants, but I will be clearly marking all my plants in case people want to quarantine, rinse, dip or otherwise treat my plants before introducing them to a tank with fish.
