I have some blyxa japonica, hemianthis micranthemoides (sp) I can spare, both of these grow like a weed for me, especially the blyxa, I can spare maybe 20-30 plants (all sizes)

I would like to swap for something I dont have if anyone is interested, I have the two mentioned + bacopa caroliana, anubias, crypt wendtii, ludwigia repens, glosso (that I collected from creek) java ferns, java moss, amazon swords.

So if anyone has something to swap let me know, anything really.... If I cant find a swap I am happy to give away for cost of postage.

I am in Coffs Harbour BTW

I have nothing to offer at the moment, but I'd like to get my new tank started (bought off these forums). Have some beaut sand in there, some rocks, but not a plant in sight. I'd be willing to pay a small amount to people as well if they like. I'm not picky, except for this: they need to be easy to keep, ie, not requiring much upkeep.

Anyone got any plant clippings I can use as a carpet? I just started cycling my first tank.

Also looking for Cherry or Glass shrimp if anyone has got any.

Heya! I just moved house and lost most of my plants in the process. It's a loach tank so they'll destroy pretty much anything i put in there, but every now and then i get lucky and something survives. I'm after some java fern, but i'll gladly accept donations of whatever excess greenery ocau has I'll even pay postage to Adelaide!

It's probably a long shot, but if anyone wants to sell or swap for some glosso I'd be extremely happy. My guy from the LFS is trying to get me some but apparently his supplier from Darwin is having a hard time growing it as it's been unseasonably cold up there.
Here's a photo of my tank. Take your pick of whatever you want because I'm not too good at the names of the plants but I do know I have java moss, peacock moss, amazon swords, crested java fern and about 5 other types of plant. Or I'm happy to send some money your way if you don't need any plants, I just want some glosso to start a carpet in the bottom left side.

Hey guys, moving to Brisbane early next year and i'm wanting to get my tank down early in prep for the move, so everything inside has to go. I have a tonne of java moss. a few Java ferns and there may still be some anubius nana grafted to drift wood in there somewhere (I'll do some digging and cleaning tomorrow )

I'm in Sheidow park a little south of Adelaide.

I've got plant clippings available for free or for trade, not sure what sort of plants they are a bit of black beard algae but nothing that's not treatable or trimmable. Pick up either from the CBD or Mount Waverley.
I'll trade for other types of plants, neon tetras or glass catfish, or anything else that may be of interest!

Anyone? Otherwise it's going in the bin!
