I'll be bringing lights, some "resin cast" drift wood pieces, a Python water changer, maybe a Lifegard modular filtration system, and more lights.
Lights include:
Standard 36" and 48" fluorescent strip lights
Current USA T5 HO duel bulb 36" and 48" lights
Ecoxotic Marine LED 36" strips
Maybe a couple of Finnex 24/7 Planted + 48"
All lights are in very good to like new condition. The Python is new. The Lifegard system needs an impeller and a UV bulb.

I'm getting ready to set up a low-tech planted shrimp 10 gallon. Would this swap be a good place for me to get a bunch of starter plants or is this more fish based?

We have decided to let sellers that have bought a table at the swap post their list of stuff for preorder on the CAFE facebook page.

Please only post if you have bought a swap table.

This is an experiment for this year, to help promote the event. Thanks.

I decided to pick up a table last minute...

I will not have a lot of plants due to a very busy fall and winter, but may have a few decent ones available.

Plants I should be offering:
•Crypt. willisii (Small species usually under 3" tall)
•Crypt nurii
•Anubias nana 'Petite' on Lava rock
•Round Pellia
•Guppy Grass
•Java Moss
•Water Hyacinth (These have converted to indoor growth and are around 5" wide and 3" or so tall)

Driftwood:
•6-8 plain pieces around $4-$10 ea
•5-6 very unique and impressive pieces ranging around $20-$50 ea (You will understand the price range when you see them)
•Will be bring some Cork Bark as well

Misc:
•2 freestanding vertical slates for breeding angels or maybe other fish species
•UV sterilizer and extra bulb (Pretty much new with only a few weeks of use)
•Floating Turtle dock/resting platform

I will get pics of the driftwood and maybe a few other items posted if I have time!!

Fish tanks are also available, but will not be brought to the swap unless arrangements have been made with me ahead of time. All tanks will need a little cleaning done to them, which I am not offering to do.. They aren't overly dirty.
•5-6 MateFrame (metal frame) aquariums ranging from around 10g-30g in size. Expected price will be about $2 per gallon unless you want them all and then I will make you a better deal on them. I can give you an exact count and tank sizes and also conditions of each tank if needed. (They are currently stacked in my garage behind a few other tanks.)
•55g tank, iron stand, glass tops and light. If interested I will test the light to see if it works and let you know what size bulb it takes. You will probably have to pick this up from my house as I will not likely have room in my car for it on Sunday. $40 if you pick it up at my house at 71n/161 just off the exit, $50 if I have to bring it to the swap and pending I can make room in the car.
•There are a few other tanks possibly ranging from 10g-29g sitting in the garage. Looking to get about 50¢ per gallon for those.

Was asked by someone on FB to post this...

I thought I registered on the forums a long time ago, but apparently I didn't (or I used my old email) but I can't register on my phone because of the captcha.
So, I was wondering if you could comment below if you could post of you have some of the plants listed below and you're attending the swap!

Monte Carlo
Staurogyne repens
Alternanthera reinickii mini
Anubias nana Petite
Cryptocoryne parva
Didiplis diandra
Pogostemon erectus
Java Fern

I know that a couple posts down, I saw someone would have the nano petite, but I haven't seen anything else in my quick searches.

Thanks in advance!

Send a private message to member "oldfish".. He breeds and sells them. He usually makes it to the swap a seller, but I do not see his name in the list on the thread.. He might have had a last minute addition though.
