    I have excess valis mini (quite a rare find) and susswassertang (big pieces, great for aot shrimp tanks) from the 44L and thought I’d spread the love.

    The vallis and susswassertang can easily be divided amongst 3 or 4 people.

    Collection only, Rondebosch. PM me.

    Collections only unfortunately.
    Perhaps ask @J’den if he’d like to trade with you (he’s picking up some of the plants).

    You talking about the mini vallis specifically? I still have loads in the tank and can share at a later point eg next meetup. The susswassertang you didn’t want but if you change your mind let me know and I’ll hold back some

    Just got a whole whack of pink rotala in a trade with @J’den - I might use a third of it. He said to pay it forward. @Dale Honeyman @Figeth , anyone else?

    Also still have susswassertang :thumbup:

    Have some if these stem plants removed from the 65L. Believe it’s a type of rotala, very easy. Best used as background plant in larger tanks, the tallest stems are around 40cm tall. Also added a pic taken from the 180L to show what they look like (long needle type leaves).

    Also have loads of hornwort (pic) and can trim off some giant baby tears (foreground plant in pic from 180L).

    My plants come with snails so treat accordingly.
