Urgent Request for Coral sitter

Recommended Posts

Hi everybody,

 

I've decided to relocate to San Diego which is awesome however I am now in a pickle.  I previously contacted a LFS to explore the possibility of paying them house my corals for a few weeks and to then ship them to me however that option is not possible at this time.  This leaves me without a place to keep my corals so I am looking for someone that could help me out with this situation.  I have a 25G Innovative Marine Lagoon tank so the area of just the corals is quite small and is mostly micromussa's, zoos, fungi plate, a few torch and frogspawn frag so maybe a 11'x11' area if that.  If anyone is able to assist it would be most appreciated and I could either pay you a fee or you can have the 25G lagoon tank in exchange, whichever you prefer.  You would expect the person that can help to shoulder any responsible in the event that a coral or two dies. 

 

Cheers,

Might be easier and less stressful to just sell and start with new corals when you settle in.

Am I reading this correctly? Are you saying that whoever volunteers to help with your corals would be responsible if something died? That seems odd to me.

Holy crap.....that is not what I meant to write at all. I could have sworn I typed "I would not hold anyone responsible if a coral or two dies", should have proofed that before posting.....my apologies for any confusion, nobody to blame if something doesn't make it..... it happens.

I screwed the pooch typing that up, didn't intend to say someone would be responsible if something died while they were helping me. I agree, that would be odd.  I moved from Texas to Oregon and now relocating to San Diego.....seems like I remember your username from either Austin or Houston forums but could have been someone with similar username.

Haha, I was hoping that was the case. I was trying to be nice by just saying that'd be "odd," but in my head I thinking, "That's ridiculous!" Good to see your point of view.

 

Hopefully someone can help ya, but if not, selling everything and starting fresh is not a terrible idea. Unless there is some sentimental attachment to fish, a clean start could be a nice way to re-motivate as well.

Hi Softy,

 

That would be most excellent, if something doesn't make it, it doesn't make it. When would be a good time to bring everything over???
