    Well the auction was fun. A lot of fish available, Plants not so much and what was there I have or tried. I did end up with some Water Sprite. As for the rest of the list I guess I'll have to wait for another auction next month. Maybe have better luck. Also will be checking with my LFS. If I strike out there at least the weather should be warmer to have them shipped to me. Maybe even find some on the forums from members selling. Still looking for the branches as mentioned earlier. Thanks again to all who responded with ideas.

    I really like water sprite. I got one plant 3.5 years ago. It grew into a monster that covered a third of my sixty. I pulled it and let it float in another tank. I recycle that plant anytime I need something that grows fast to fill space. When I don’t want it it floats

    If you want star grass I can give you some when the weather warms. I have a bunch. When it takes over I feed it to my Rainbow cichlids

    Might be too small but I will give it to you. Will definitely work nice for a moss tree

    @tunamanphd Thanks for the offer. Looking for something in the 2 -2.5 ft range with thicker diameter main branch. May take you up on it when ready to order some plants (just to cold right now). Plus going to another auction in 5 weeks.
