Driftwood I bought from stevenjohn21 with java moss/java ferns pictures

Here are some pictures of the driftwood that I bought from stevenjohn21 a few months ago. The piceces were so big I was able to break each of the 3 29" pieces into 3 seperate pieces and make extra pieces. I was able to sell the extra at the tropical fish club auction that I belong to. I used clear fishing line to attach the java moss and java ferns. I piece just kept floating so I used fishing line to attach it to a marble base piece I had. I had them soaking for about 3 weeks in my garage.

Here are 5 picture of the pieces that I use and covered yesterday with Java moss and Java ferns. Just think how that would look in a few months time.

It looks really nice and in a few months it'll be great, except you'll no longer be able to see your driftwood, lol.
I like the one piece of wood that is arched, very nice.

Thanks, my red cherry shrimps like the driftwood in my 20 gal. tank that I have covered with java moss. I noticed tiny baby red cherry shrimp in my 10 gal. fry tank. I also have a few berried females in that tank also.

Yes, the ferns are from you when you gave me some of your red cherry shrimps. I like those ferns what kind are they? I had a nice piece I put on that curved driftwood in my 30 gallon bowfront tank.

The are Microsorum pteropus "Windelov", otherwise known as lace java fern. It'll grow like a weed. :-)

It's not if, it's when, lol. Not sure how many Eileen has but I have oddles. Where are you located? I'd be happy to give you shrimp for free, but you pay the shipping. I don't want to ship them unless I know they will survive and that I don't have to use heat packs. Are you on this side of the Rockies or the other??

Does anyone know if one can safely send shrimp USPS Express from California to Georgia this time of year safely?? (Without having to use heat packs, which I don't have)
