Need nitrate eaters in my goldfish tank... things are outta control? Anyone have a generous clump of java fern they are willing to part with? I would prefer p/u in Maple Ridge but can also p/u at a skytrain station weekdays after work.

Thanks
Kelly

I would give you some of mine... If I weren't away on the Island right now. If you still need them three weeks from now, talk to me then.

I just got rid of my java ferns to another member, there was a ziplock bag full.

All you will need is one or two, they propagate FAST!

Another great nitrate sponge is hornwort. Goldfish will not eat this either. Much faster growing too :)!

Best Regards,

Stuart

Lol! I just gave all mine to athena... I found it a HUGE PITA... little hornwort cuttings everywhere... in the filter, stuck in the plants--- they just land there and grow and send out more cuttings :eek:

No doubt.

Roger's usually has lots of Java Fern if you're willing to go to a store in Surrey. Not a huge deal with the new bridge anyways.
