Going to have some C. moehlmannii for give away or trade.

Postby Paul Krombholz » Wed May 23, 2007 7:37 pm

Some time this summer I am going to be re-doing my 29 gallon crypt tank, and I will be getting rid of about 10 or so large plants of C. moehlmannii and also some wendtii green gecko plants. They can be give away, but if you happen to want them and also have a spare plant or two of C. aponogetiifolia, I would like to get it.

Paul,

We have 3 guys in GWAPA growing C. aponogetiifolia, as soon as someone has a grown runner they can pull we'll get you one.

That IS an aquascape, it's titled THE VACANT LOT.

I'd be interested in giving the C. wendtii 'Green Gecko' a try. I'm not familiar with the other Crypt so I suspect that it's a softwater crypt which I'm not setup for at the moment.

The C. moehlmannii is a large, easy to grow crypt with green leaves. It is not particularly fussy about water hardness.

That is very kind! Anybody want the moehlmannii in trade? If not, I will be glad to pay.

Purrbox - definitely give the moehlmanii a try. It's really easy to grow and it's one of the more attractive submersed Crypts.

Okay, Aaron talked me into it. I'd like to give both a try, although they'll probably be going into my emersed setup instead of an aquarium. All of my aquariums are quite small and already bursting at the seams with plants.

OK, Joy.


You are on my list to get some C. moehlmannii and wendtii green gecko.

Anybody else?

Since it's not something I'm likely to kill off right away, I'll give it a shot if they are available.

I just cleared out some Java fern I was starting up in my medium light soft water tank. It's a 20H with about a dozen potted crypts with C. Wentii varieties doing well. Others are just holding their own.

ruki,

Do you just want the moehlmannii or do you want moehlmannii and the green gecko?

Both would be great! I don't have either of those. I'm hoping to try out with all of the easier to grow species before moving on to the difficult ones.

Paul;

I'll give it a go.

I've got some C. pontederiifolia and a green gecko that we're beginning to suspect may not be the case.

I'm one of the GWAPA keepers of C. aponogetiifolia that Sean got at Gula last year and the plant is growing quite robustly, but has not thrown any runners yet. When it does, it has your name on it.

Cheers.
Jim

It's been a couple of weeks and I haven't heard anything further about this, although I did PM you my address a day or two after your post. Just curious about the current status. Thanks!

I know i am quite a bit late but i'll take one of anyone of those. I do have one small C. aponogetiifolia. I do also have C. affins that i could also trade. The C. affins is small as well.

I am still rather new to crypt's and really don't have to many to trade.
