Free Plants from CraigsList so I'm jumping in

So I ran across an add offering free plants in CL as long as I come and haul them away.

Here's just a snipit of what I'm going to be getting....

FROGBIT, DUCKWEED and NAJAS GUADALUPENSIS (Najas Grass or Guppy Grass). CHRISTMAS TREE MOSS. Rooted plants include baby tears, various crypts, and chain sword plants.
So with some creative rearranging on my part with my fish.... I'm going to be doing a heavily planted tank - my new 55g that had blue convict cichlids is now going to be a rather heavily planted tank. With the help of a rather nice person on this forum (YAY Eileen!)... I'm going to be getting some beautiful blue russian ramshorn snails, and some endlers, otto cats, and anglefish!!! (The endlers may have to be kept in my 10g until they are large enough to not become angel treats...
I'm very excited and will post before/during and after pics during this project.

Wow what a nice find. You will have alot of options with those. As a tip from what I've researched... Duckweed.. it grows like crazy. If it comes seperated I would throw it out, and I'll bet you'll still wind up with lots in your tank.

Nice score

Looking forward to pics. and progress.

Animal testing is a terrible idea; they get all nervous and give the wrong answers.
