  1. I saw this listing on ebay for a 7" fantail goldfish that was local pickup in North Bergen, NJ. I know there are a TON of Kokonuts in NJ on here and thought I'd share it in case anyone was interested. Looks like a nice fish, they just don't want goldies anymore. http://www.ebay.com/itm/7-RED-FANTAIL-Imported-Goldfish-live-fish-for-koi-pond-/121610246210?pt=LH_DefaultDomain_0&hash=item1c50891842
  2. On the 15 of August I purchased from fishman724 (Bruce) an order of 10 banana lilies. They were shipped the following Monday and expected to arrive Wednesday August 20. Imagine my concern when they didn't arrive! Not Wednesday, not Thursday, not Friday. Finally on Saturday I contacted the seller. "Hello fishman724, I just wanted to know that as of tomorrow, it'll have been a week since the banana plants were shipped and they still have yet to arrive. I don't have much hope for their state when they finally do arrive, either. Anyhow, I just wanted to let you know why I hadn't yet left feedback on the item. I hope this can be resolved happily for all, above_all_else" Being new to ebay, I accidentally started a case instead of just messaging the guy. Monday the plants arrived, but I wasn't home to see them. However, I had my father send me pictures over email and they looked okay. And then today fishman responds, "Please advise if you received your plants yet and if so are they ok ? Bananna plants are extremely hardy but if your are not ok please advise and I will replace at no charge to you. Bruce " Everything about that response (other than spelling ) is perfect. First of all, his first concern was for the health of the plants, He first asked if the plants were okay rather than pulling some crap response about shipping and deflecting blame onto someone else. I'm impressed. Then he goes on to cater to the buyer's (my) possible needs, offering to replace the plants at no charge if the plants are damaged. And again, I'm impressed. So thoroughly impressed! Of course I couldn't respond to this when I first got it, as I wasn't actually home to see the plants yet (Stupid work -_-) but as soon as I got home the first thing I did was check the plants.... and wow, was I surprised! 10 Healthy beautiful banana plants with non-melted leaves, strong roots and thick banana rhizomes. Little to no melting. Happily sitting in my tank. These plants spent a week in the mail, probably lost by the postage service, and yet their impeccable care prior and great shipping still landed them in my home and tank in tip top shape, better than the plants I could purchase at lfs times 10. So naturally I responded like this; "Holy crap, Bruce, what are you doing to these plants! A week in the mail and they arrive perfectly healthy with strong, non- melted leaves and healthy roots. I can't say I've ever been so impressed with a shipment, and I've purchased a lot of things online. Many of the plants I've bought have arrived much faster and still been in inferior condition than these plants. 4000% impressed with the quality of your plants. Not only that but your response to my not recieving the plants was to ask if they were okay rather than to blame the postal service. That's so admirable. Caring for the plants first and foremost is so cool of you. I'm very impressed with you as a seller and definitely plan to buy from you again soon. Sorry to open a case in the first place... (it was actually a total accident... pretty new to eBay and only meant to send you a message. I hope this doesn't affect your feedback or anything negatively -_-) Awesome to work with you, hope the plants continue to flourish. Above" I've never been so impressed with a buyer's quality, ever. No holds barred, best transaction I've been part of. Definitely check him out for all your plant needs! fishman724 http://www.ebay.com/usr/fishman724?_trksid=p2047675.l2559 They don't have much up now, but I assure you, what they do have is well worth it... Even if it does take awhile to arrive!
  3. I recently placed an order with the seller 'fishareus' on eBay, as I have been wanting to get some new plants for a while now. I ordered 6 water sprite plants for $17.99 and a flat-rate box full of jungle val for $11.99. His eBay store has fantastically-priced plants, and they mostly come in packages of six. Another thing I LOVE is that there is free shipping on everything! Usually when you shop for plants on other online stores, shipping will go up for every additional item you purchase, or it could be a flat rate cost, usually around 7-8 dollars. When you think about it, you can buy quite a bit with those shipping costs! The free shipping really sealed the deal for me. I received the plants today, in excellent condition. And the water sprite was HUGE! I was not expecting the plants to be so big. He even threw in a couple extra tiny water sprite plants, too. The jungle val was equally great, a very generous portion, for a cheap price! I haven't found jungle val anywhere else at a cheaper price. I haven't done an official count, but I think I have around 30 plants. Here's some pics! Here's how they were packaged. They were wrapped in moist newspaper and tucked inside a clear bag. Look at the roots on these things! And here they are chillin' in a 5 gallon tank, ready to be sanitized. Overall, fishareus is an excellent eBay seller. His prices are very reasonable and he has a wide variety of plants to choose from! He has a bunch of sword varieties on his store, some I didn't even know existed. Communication with buyers is fast and prompt. I will be buying again! Here is a link to his store: http://www.ebay.com/usr/fishareus Thanks for looking!
  4. Guess what! It's Review Time! A couple weeks ago I bought a piece of driftwood from http://www.ebay.com/usr/surfsnow123 This is the piece http://i.ebayimg.com/00/s/ODcxWDExODI=/z/XOcAAOxydgZTIOYl/$_57.JPG Unfortunately the piece arrived broken in half, which was an easy fix with some silicone. I contacted the seller and was immediately offered an apology along with either a full refund or a free piece of wood plus free shipping. Of course I picked the free item The wood was as dry as a bone, and it took a while for it to soak and stay at the bottom. Initially I had to place a couple large river rocks on top of the slate, but now after a week and a half in the tank, the wood stays in place on its own. The rocks won't stay in place though, because my fish all think they are interior decorators. "THIS ROCK DOES NOT GO THERE!" The wood also does not affect the pH at all. After arrival I boiled it to remove tannins, but the water barely got a yellow tint. Overall, even with the mishap during shipping, I was very pleased, especially considering how accommodating surfsnow123 was when I told him about the damage. The seller does not have a ton of pieces at a time, but adds new pieces to his listing every week, and I like that there are many "goldfish-safe" pieces without sharp edges, which is something I can't seem to find at any of the LFS around here. I will be giving a positive review and 5 stars on anything. Item was as described (minus the shipping accident), shipping was fast, customer service fantastic, great quality driftwood. This is my wood in the tank, and you can see a couple of the tall anubias I got from suntsova. This here is a beautiful piece he currently has up for sale. It would look fantastic as a center piece in someone's tank! The only reason I did not pick this as my free item is that I was looking for a longer piece of wood. http://www.ebay.com/itm/DRIFTWOOD-Art-Aquarium-mounted-on-slate-Clark-Fork-River-Unique-And-Different-/121336338324?pt=Decorations&hash=item1c40359794 And this is the free item I will receive some time next week. It is 22" long
  5. They've been a member since 1999, and have 100% positive feedback, out of Minnesota. Anyway, they have a lot of smooth-looking driftwood from Lake Superior. Thoughts, experiences, other vendors you like to buy driftwood from? From one of their listings: You are bidding on a unique piece of natural driftwood straight from the shores of Lake Superior and surrounding areas. It is perfect for use in an aquarium, reptile habitat, craft project, or any one of hundreds of other purposes! Make your project truly one of a kind with this piece of driftwood! A few things to consider before adding it to your aquarium/habitat: * I only collect driftwood that I would feel safe putting in my own aquarium. Anything rotten, moldy, or questionable is left on the beach. * As with ANY natural driftwood, you run the risk of introducing something in your aquarium/habitat that you do not want in there. To minimize this risk, I have taken the following steps to prep all my driftwood placed in my aquarium, and have not had any problems: 1) Boil or pour boiling water over this driftwood to kill anything. 2) Place in sun to dry out for a couple days to make sure everything is dead. 3) Boil again for good measure. * As with ANY piece of driftwood, they have tannins in them which can cause a brownish tint to the water. Boiling helps release these tannins, but some may remain. Water changes & activated carbon filtration help remove these tannins from the water. This driftwood has been floating in Lake Superior for who knows how long, so most should be tannin free, but there might still be some lingering. * Most of these pieces will initially float in water. Boiling will help quicken the water-logging process, but some method of weighing the wood down will almost certainly be required. There are many methods to do this that you can read about online. The method that I have used numerous times is to take a piece of slate tile, drill a hole through it, and use a deck screw to attach the driftwood to the tile. Then simply bury the tile in your substrate, and your driftwood looks like it is naturally submerged. For an additional $5, I will provide a piece of tile with a few holes drilled in it and a couple screws for you. Just send me a message and I will send you an amended invoice. Shipping on this piece is to the USA only. Be sure to check out my other auctions for driftwood and rocks! I will combine shipping on multiple orders. The highest shipping rate will be charged initially, after that $1 for each additional piece will be added. The more you buy the more you save! If you have any questions or concerns, please feel free to ask. Thanks for looking!!
  6. My goldfish from eBay arrived today! They were packaged really well, and the fish were doing great. Their bag water tested 0.00 for ammonia, not even sure how that's possible, lol. Sorry these were the best pictures I could do, had to rush out after I got them acclimated and into the tank. I'm really happy with them and I would definitely buy from this seller again.
  7. Found it on ebay. My tank is 110 gallons and I want to increase filtration. So far all I have is 350g/hour Sorry I thought I had posted the link http://www.ebay.com/itm/261107831955?ssPageName=STRK:MEWAX:IT&_trksid=p3984.m1438.l2649
  8. Anyone have experience with this online vender? Feedback is good but a few months after you buy a fish is sort of the important part, you know? So far he or she has been more than accommodating in responses about plants and future ranchu purchases.
  9. Was looking the other day (THURS) on Ebay for some moss, Draco's tank I do planted.............. anyway it was buy one get one thursday.............total (shipping was free) $5.75.......... got it today..............was quite happy, had mesh(which I did not use) and fishing line............and Two decent clumps of java moss.......... here is what I did................(couldn't do the mesh............eye sight not so good and hands lack coordination to do that.............lol Enjoy the pics !! http://i225.photobucket.com/albums/dd251/OBIOandSharkbait/DSCN3311.jpg http://i225.photobucket.com/albums/dd251/OBIOandSharkbait/DSCN3310.jpg http://i225.photobucket.com/albums/dd251/OBIOandSharkbait/DSCN3307.jpg
  10. I recently bought some anubias from an ebay store. The plants arrived today and I am rather satisfied with what I got. First off though, of course I am not going to compare the quality of the plants with the quality you get at Plantedaquariumscentral, but considered the difference in price and free shipping, I am absolutely fine with the fact that during the rather long shipping time from Malaysia (9 days in transit) a few leaves were partially yellow. I would post photos, but my camera tends to bring out yellow tones 10x more saturated than they really are, and the plants look very yellow in the pictures. Anyway, this is the store I bought at http://stores.ebay.com/aquaticmagic And these the plants I purchased: 2x anubias lanceolata http://www.ebay.com/...=item3a473eee4c They came at about 4" height, each with about 6-8 leaves 3x anubias broad leaf http://www.ebay.com/...=item3a486a9766 They came at about 2.5" height, each with 9-11 leaves For all five plants I payed only $ 22.50, and as said free shipping. That is a great deal even considering the fact that I will have to clip off a few leaves. I'll definitely buy plants there again, I am already eying some barteri gold and barteri nana petite
  11. I want to get really nice plants for my fish, but none of the shops I have access to carry nice (or even healthy) ones... I checked ebay, but I worry about getting nasty things into my tank ... SO my question is: Would a bleach dip (1 part bleach / 19 parts water) be enough to kill anything undesirable or would it take more? Here are examples of what I have found so far: http://www.ebay.ca/itm/2x-Anubias-nana-mini-Live-aquarium-plants-water-moss-/251054857123?pt=LH_DefaultDomain_0&hash=item3a74091ba3 http://www.ebay.ca/itm/Anubias-nana-6-rhizomes-Cichlid-Fish-CO2-water-plants-/140749083628?pt=LH_DefaultDomain_0&hash=item20c54c93ec My fake plants are just depressing ... Thanks in advance!
