Hi guys it's been a very long time since I posted something. Sadly we had a housefire on the Fourth of July and that left my tanks completely just dead. really it was an electrical fire we were lucky we didn't have a lot of fire damage just electrical damage. of course all of our electronics and appliances were fried. Now that we're settled into our new place and we got everything situated were starting to get the tanks back up and running again. during this whole fiasco we decommissioned three of the tank so now were just running the 20 gallon the 30 gallon and the 60 gallon tanks. but of course all of my plants except for handful died sadly and most of my fish died so I am slowly been getting my text back up to par. the conditions are better and I've just added new fish for the first time since the fire and I did buy a couple plants locally but it's just so expensive that way ( $9 per plant) so I was hoping to reach out to you guys. I am mostly looking for clippings from some stem plants. those seem to grow the best and also that would be quickest and helping my tanks reach back to good levels and being able to be naturally filtered again. which would be totally awesome for me. I have $50 left in my budget for plants and I am in Maine which means it's extremely cold. if anybody has the capabilities of shipping here and is doing trimmings, please please message me and let you know. I am getting super desperate for plants it's just so expensive locally and the plants aren't that great quality here. it's just some plants that are thrown into a tank that's never fertilize they're not planted. it is out there just slowly dying and it's just a salvage mission and I'd really like something more reliable .please message me and let me to know thanks.

yes the fire was super scary. we were lucky that the flames didn't reach us, but the smoke/water damage was there in part of our apartment and the fire was electrical so it blew all of my lights in the tanks. everyone was ok. my son was having his first sleep over. so that was an interesting experience. but thankfully the worst (emotionally) of our losses was the tanks. we lost most of the fish and plants in the tanks, but the other pets were fine. so that was comforting.

what does dls mean? i still need plants for my 60 gallon. someone messaged me and did a package for me that will work for my daughter's 30 and i was lucky enough to find some plants locally for my son's 20.

yes, neighbors can be horrible when it comes to fires. my husband had to go get one of my neighbors who wouldn't leave his apartment even though it was where the fire started and was pouring out smoke. he was to drunk to move. it was very scary!

I'll fit the most that I can in a small priority box so should be 6 dollars I can also ship some bacopa australis which is the one that has grown more my African green hygro had thrown some stems too but they haven't rooted I may have some of those later the cambomba stems are at least 10" tall the bacopa is almost reaching the top of the aquarium
