    Hi all.

    I am a noob and have just set up my first planted tank and am looking for some plants/cuttings to get started.
    I am running medium light with no CO2 (yet).
    If anyone has some cuttings or plants to spare, I would appreciate it.

    TIA

    Hi Darryn I'll check tomorrow what plants I can take cuttings from. Should have some HM and Ronald colorata and maybe two other species.

    Yea the republicans prefer to call it Reagan or Ronald Colorata and the democrats rotala colorata, all depends on which side of the line you come from, so it simply boils down to semantics, after all it's still a great plant :laughing7:

    Try the Swift Key 3 app. It learns the way and words you type as well as suggest two other predictive texts in bar above.

    Hi Danelle.

    Yes, I would like a bit of each if possible.
    Thank you for the offer.
    I would most probably only be able to get to you on Thursday, or over the weekend if that is okay?

    Thanks again.

    I'm on an unbelievably tight schedule now. Somewhere over the weekend will be better but I'll tell you when. We have to move my stuff to a flat in Stellenbosch.

    You don't possibly have a breeding colony of tiger prawns to braai? ;)

    The last few days has been hectic and I will never be home weekdays anymore. Sometimes over a weekend will work. I didn't have internet access for the last few days too. Let me know if you sill want some and when you can come over the weekend.
