Barbie and I will be moving at the end of July... I am asking for help with the care and keeping of my livestock. If anyone can help provide temporary shelter for my fish and coral I would be ecstatically happy. I would provide food for the livestock and would be willing to work out other compensation for this huge favor... The bottom line is that I love this hobby and would like to see my livestock make it safely and happily to my new residence.
There are plenty of ways to move your set up. If you aren't moving far, and/or have access to the new place, you can get a bigger tank, set it up in your new home, give it a bit, move rock over, etc, and then move the animals. If you are moving quite a distance, it is possible to break things down, pack them in rubbermaid tubs, buckets, put a battery powered bubbler in if needed, and make the move. Then you reset up the tank at the new place and have at it. It has to be a gigantic pain in the butt on moving day to try to pull this off, but I know it's possible. If you decide that you want to store your corals for a bit, I am sure plenty of people here would help you out. Where are you headed?
