Smile Java Moss and Duckweed for sale

Hey, all!

I was looking at our two "planted" tanks tonight and decided I would start selling our extra plants. I have to clean duckweed out of our 40 gallon every couple weeks or it completely takes over, and the java moss is starting to take over our 10 gallon too. Neither of these tanks have any fancy lighting or CO2... they are very easy, low light plants and fish really enjoy them.

I've attached pictures so you can see what I mean.

I'm offering good-sized clumps (about the size of your palm) for $5 each, plus shipping.

Can someone who has done this before give some shipping advice? Can I double baggie the clumps with a wet paper towel and put it into a padded envelope so I don't have to pay $5 to ship such a small thing?




(after I took out a HUGE clump)

Tanks:

40 breeder - tons of Loaches, White Cloud Minnows, Clown Pleco
10 community - Kuhli loaches, feeder Guppies, pond snails

A lot of people will buy duckweed to feed goldfish. but if you sell any other plant, it is worth more if certified duckweed-free.

It kinda drives me crazy but the fish do love lurking in it. No one eats it in the tank that it's overrun with, that I know of.
In the other tank, there was some duckweed originally but it's disappeared. Only things in there are pond snails, white clouds, and cherry shrimp.

The envelopes which are padded with the bubble-wrap inside are fine. Yes, bag them with juuuussst enough water to keep them wet and wrap that in paper towels, and stuff into the bubblewrapped envelope. It will ship fine.

I might want some myself. I had to shut down most of my operation recently and lost a lot of stuff, and I'll need some javamoss as I rebuild. Not right now, though.

Java moss went so well at our last auction people were buying endler's for the moss in the bag, lol. Keep on selling it, more profitable than fish.
