    About half the ferns in here are eventually going to be planted in a new tank I'm re-scaping for someone, until then, they have a home in my tank and in my photos.

    Wow..that piece of java fern costing you $40? That is pricy! Can't wait to see how are you going to get them into the 5g tank.

    Oh sorry, this is my 5g tank-- what I mean is that I got my order of 40 dollars worth of java fern today that's going to someone else.

    It might not look it in the photo I guess, but there's actually a ton of ferns in there-- my order had about 50 plants, each with about 3 leaves, so about 150 leaves worth.

    Woah.. that's ALOT of fern.

    I wonder how much a similar amount would cost in Singapore.

    :P one of the lfs offering me microsorium pteropus "narrow" for rm500. But there is around 300 leaves. Too bad. I didn't bring enough cash!

    RM 500.. that works out to be roughly SGD 220. That's a good deal for 300 leaves of the narrow leaf java fern.

    Yes. When I was return to the shop on 2nd day. They told me the fern already reserved by other customer. Too bad. I only hv once in my life time with such a good offer.

    Its okay the chance will appear again. The narrow leaf survives better in my tanks as compared to others. In fact when I place them close to a point with alot of water current they grow faster and better.
