  • Is anyone raising white worms? Pick up at the December Holiday Party would be ideal, but otherwise I can swing by someone's house.
  • I need to downsize some so I have a few items that I will give away. I have 3 x ten gallon 3 x 20 gallon 1 x 55 gallon 1 x 15 gallon - this is an acrylic tank that may have been used at a Petco Metal stand that will hols 2 ten gallon tanks Also I have the fish, snails and plants from a 125. Lots and lots of Java fern and subwassertang plus 30-40 Cherry barbs - mostly juveniles with a couple of tetras and 5 glow fish. These are free as well There are also assassin snails in the tank I am down the street from the CVS in Centreville - Lee Hgwy and Pickwick Rd Text 703-863-zero 13 two
  • I am over stocked at the moment and am looking to sell some of the more aggressive dudes. Two Male metriaclima sp. msobo magunga, one is getting the short end of the stick. I won these at a live fish auction at CCA in silver spring a few years ago as juvies. $25 ea or $40 both obo. others are freebee's to go along with above purchase or $5 a piece if separtate. Assorted mbuna from local fish store. Two electric blue, one orange, and one black and yellow. $15 for all if not getting the above. all prices obo.... not really sure there true worth but had to ask something. Very fun fish if you want and active tank... but need something to calm aggression like keeping in harem or hiding places. My community tank is not doing them justice. Thanks PM me pictures coming as soon as i upload them =]
