    Doing a trim on my main tank again and have a fairly large amount of stems especially rotala available everything in the photos is going to get trimmed so shout if you’d like any. Any interesting red plants, grasses or snails would be massively appreciated as a swop but I’m also giving it away.

    Sho lush! You still owe us a fts ;)

    Very interested in the large hydrocoryle that almost looks like narsturtium leaves in pic 2 (I don’t see that around often locally) and in pic 3 the stem plant with the star-like top - what is it?

    Can part with a couple of ramshorns and trumpets but that’s about all I can offer at the moment. And white clouds and platys, plus a floating plant salvinia natans which should be treated very responsibly as it can be very invasive if released into our waterways :)

    Oh wow those plants are amazing, I would love some cuttings!

    I have two species of red plant, an unidentified water grass (bettas seem to adore it), giant vallis, hygrophilia, striped apple snails, and golden apple snails...

    I’m based in Hout Bay so if @Figeth I’d love some of anything I could grab from you plants wise especially or a betta tank and @A new day if there’s anything in particular you’d like just let me know and I’ll swing past your place if that’s cool in the next couple of days.

    @J'den was very nice to meet you today. Hope the fish are doing well. Thank you for the plants, more than what i expected. They are in 3 different tanks floating for now, tomorrow will be a busy day after the meet.

    @krg007 and @A new day
    Thank you both for the fish they’re fantastic. Couldn’t be happier actually the minnows have colored up red lips and all. The cories are so great to have again.
    I hope the plants shared give you both more than you could ever use once they grow and if you or anyone else needs more just should I’ll be due for another trim sometime soon.
