I can, but i have to take them and then post process them :P

If i get a chance tonight ill do it otherwise it'll have to be later in the week.

Ive done a bit clean up tonight, you might need to wait a few weeks as i dont want to give anyone else algae

The crypts look ok but the Rotala and the Milfoil had some buildup

It was a jungle ive just massacred it back

I've just got neither the energy, the money or the time to do much aquarium stuff at the moment. Perhaps when I do, i'll finally post pics!

Nice setup! is it just the photo, or do you have a lot of light in that tank?

If anyone in Bris is interested, I have:

Vallisneria nana
Vallisneria sp. 'thin'
Vallisneria sp. 'corkscrew'
Potamogeton tricarinatus

Marsilea hirsuta - looks like a jumbo version of glosso
Hygrophila angustifolia - very nice branching plant, leaves up to 15cm in my tank.
Aponogeton vanbruggenii (NFS until seed germinates)

Most stuff I have has very fast plant growth (up to 2-4in per week)- lighting goes 4.2 to 6WPG during the day with a 10hr photoperiod, and I dose Excel and PMDD ferts. I also have a fairly high fish load.

I am looking for:
ANY species of Eriocaulon, especially stuff from the NT
bulk java moss
any decent size Anubias
any decent size crypts

I can post if you're willing to pay postage as well.

I figured we would send any plants in a clipseal bag with a bit of arir in it and then shove it into one of the expressed payed thingos at the post office?
Thanks for the java ferns mate. I know I don't have the best setup or CO2 injection or anything crazy, but I hope they do well so I can have a bit more aquatic vegetation for the fish to hide/play in

Well, it depends. Normal post can be done, but they'll most likely be a bit battered by the time they're there. Express would be a better option - probably just $10. What did you want?

Will do. Dunno about the Aponogeton vanbruggenii, as I tried propogating it via cuttings and replanting. Didn't work, so I think it's seed only. The flower it set out has finished flowering and should be good to go though. I'm not sure I'm keen on the plant itself though, it doesn't really fit in. See:



It's the dark-leaved plant in the corner. I wont be selling it though, as it was collected by Leo in NT, not from Aquagreen.

The Potamogeton tricarinatus is going well though:






Grows at about 2" a week, and the leaves turn a nice pink as they get higher too. I'll clip the bunch in around a week and I can either grow them out for you or swing them your way @ 6-8in high. Your choice

The 'Willow Hygro' (Hygrophilia Augustifolia) is also going great guns - the nodal growth has gone from 1" increments to 1/2 cm increments under halides :




Oh, and I managed to source some Nth. Qld Eriocaulons too. I'll see if I can grow them out.. they're fairly temperamental little plants.
