I'm so bummed....

During my regular weekly maintenance this past weekend I yanked out one of
the nicest "mats" of Cryptocoryne Wendtii  I've ever seen.  I thought to
myself.... I'm not tossing this!!!  So I brought it down to a LFS.  It was
about a foot and a half  long and by a good 8" wide.  Must have been 30 or
more plants in there, all between 8" and a 12" tall.  The store gave $6 in
store credit.  I almost felt insulted...............

I know of some aquarium stores in Milwaukee, Wisconsin that would give you a lot more for that mat of Crypts, but for most of the rest of the country, $6.00 is about as good as you are going to get. Blame it on the global economy:-) Think of bringing plants to your LFS as a charitable act to help spread the planted tank hobby and to help prevent Petsmart from putting all the little LFS's out of business.
