RE: [AGA-Member] Plants for sale/trade?

Hey Matt, when I can't find what I'm looking for at my LFS I order
plants online. I've ordered from Arizona Aquatic Gardens and
Aquatic-Store.com, and they both offer some demanding and relatively
rare species, compared with my LFS.
	If you're looking for red bunched plants for the midground and
background, Ludwigia repens, Rotala wallachi, Rotala macrandra, and
Eusteralis stellata are some of my favorites, the Ludwigia easily being
the easiest of the four to keep in my experience but beautiful
nonetheless. Some of these species are really delicate and require
strong lighting.
	I don't have any experience shipping plants, and the only ones I
have enough of to give away are the L. repens and the R. wallachi, but I
wanted to offer you some examples of really nice red stem plants that I
like. There are many others. If you have time, take a look at those
sites. I hope this helps a little.

Subject: [AGA-Member] Plants for sale/trade?

Hello all, just thought i would put up a post here while I have some
time. I wrote a bit ago about a problem I was having with my CO2 system
I would really like to thank everyone who wrote back with thier comments
Ideas. Tank pressure was around 1000 psi, and I was running about 20 psi
so out of the regulator after several days of fooling with it trying to
if I just needed the adjust the needle valuve more perceisly i figured i

would try to adjust the working pressure and i turned it up to just
under 30 
psi.... that seems to have solved my problem for the past few days it
appeared to be running fine releasing about the same amount of CO2
when it comes back on. So once again i would like to thank everyone for 
thier help and ideas.
     I also wanted to see if anyone has some extra plants that they are 
willing to part with to either trade or sale. I have a lot of what i
say as pretty much average plants you can pick up in your LFS and im
to start to try some new and maybe more challenging plants.... and
some that are a little more intresting and pleasing to the eye. i really

dont have much that i would think anyone would be intrested in, some
species, more chain sword than i know what to do with LoL, a few common 
cryps and  an assorment of more common stem plants but i dont really
like trying it all out..... I do have one plant that may be of intrest
some though its called Lagarosiphon madagascariensis, im not sure how
it is offered through the hobby but it is a georgous bright green
stem plant with many little "spikes" as leaves..... its very attractive
I am rather fond of it.... probably my favorite plant in my aquarium....
still growing out to fill in the space I would like it in but as soon as
have to start thinning it out if anyone is intrested i would be happy to

trade some of it for some new species that I have not yet worked
also if anyone has some that they could sell please let me know.... i am

intrested in working with some different colors.... mostly getting some
into my aquarium. thanks for anyone that can help out!
