Summer Baby sitter

Hello Folks!

Summer is fast approaching and I am planning the destiny of my tank during the summer. Last year, I just brought it home and cared for it there. This summer, though, I have a different set of goals.

After two years of students who have seen Finding Nemo and convinced the fish are always hungry for a fist-full of food(flame), my tank is getting gross. I'm going to be gone a lot this summer taking courses and working, so I would like to use the time to decomission my tank and give it a hardcore cleaning. I would like to bake my live-rock, change my substrate, and scrub all of the calcium algae off the sides.

While all this is happening, I have no place for my livestock. Along with some corals, I have two clownfish, a serpent star, and a lot of hermit crabs. Would any one with extra space be willing to take them on? I have no emotional attachment to any of them personally, so I don't need to get back my exact corals, crabs, or fish. In fact, it would be cool to cycle in some new corals and this might be a chance to trade.

Thanks again for all your support. The students love the tank and watching it grow. Unfourtanetly, they have lost feeding privelages without hawk-like supervision(wife)

I could take them. I have a 40b that is only working as a refugium right now. I could put all your stuff in it and give it a home for the summer.
