    Out-of-hobby garage sale - Saturday July 14

    Thanks for the responses, everybody! To be clear, I'm going to try to do this just as a garage sale, so everything will be first-come-first-serve, starting at 9:00 Saturday morning in my garage (address posted above). If there is anything left after Saturday, I will post it on this thread and make individual one-off type appointments per the usual procedure. I don't know how well this garage sale idea is going to work. It just got sort of complicated keeping track of all the transactions when I was selling the livestock and bigger pieces of equipment, so I thought I would try it this way to see if it's any easier. Let's find out!

    Oh, Ziggy looks so happy! The Apex Jr has a temperature probe, the display module, and some basic cableage. No wifi adapter.

    Breakdown sale

    FYI all the livestock have found new homes. I'm spread pretty thin right now, so I'm just slowly cleaning up the equipment and making an inventory list. Might be quite a while before I post the equipment, but if there's something you want, feel free to PM me in the meantime. Right now I have just all the things that a compulsive shopper with a 73 gallon fish tank might have.

    I have bites on the leathers and the urchins already. I'll let you know if either of those fall through. Also, I think I've responded to everybody who messaged me about this stuff. Please let me know if I missed you. I'm trying to arrange a bunch of pick-ups this weekend, and then I'll post an updated inventory next week. Thanks to everybody who responded to my listing!

    Hey, thanks to everybody who has sent me messages about this stuff. FYI I'm a bit buried at work, but I got your messages and I'm putting together a list of who spoke up for each critter first. I'll be in touch shortly. Thanks for your patience! Kyle

    How could I forget the photos? That torch is having a bad day after this morning's water change.

    Breakdown sale

    It's time for me to get out of the hobby, so I'm looking for good homes for some close friends. The tank has been running since summer of 2015. Nothing new has been added to the tank since November 2017, which is when I added the mandarin dragonet. No signs of parasites or infections among the fish, but there is an outbreak of clove polyps on the rocks on the left side of the tank. I've marked the corals on those rocks with an asterisk, and I've discounted them. Please let me know if you think something here is mispriced. I'm happy to negotiate. Fishes: 1 lawnmower blenny ($10) 1 Bangaii cardinal ($10) 1 yellow striped cardinal ($10) 1 mated pair of skunk clowns ($15) 2 blue damsels ($5 for the pair) 1 6-line wrasse ($15) 1 tiny green mandarin dragonet (captive-bred from Biota, eats frozen--the prize of the tank!) ($75) Corals: 1 large (about 14") red tree coral ($30) 1 ~6" diameter rock covered in green hairy mushrooms ($20) 1 small (1" diameter) green maxi-mini anemone ($10) 1 medium (4" diameter) green toadstool ($20) 1 large (about 10") green tree coral ($20)* 1 large (about 8" diameter) short-polyp brown toadstool ($20)* Green mushrooms ($1 each)* 2 medium (about 3") zoanthid colonies ($5 each)* 1 small (about 2") zoanthid colony ($2)* 1 golden torch, in the process of splitting into 3 heads ($10)* * Corals marked with an asterisk are on rocks where clove polyps are growing. Inverts: 1 pincushion urchin ($5) 1 black longspine urchin ($10) 3 fighting conches ($5 each) A handful of trochus snails ($1 each) 1 large snail of unknown species ($8) 1 large nassarius snail (see photo, $10) Some unknown quantity of scarlet hermit crabs ($1 each)

    How to rehome livestock?

    Thanks, @Emerald525! This will be a big help.

    How to rehome livestock?

    Oh yeah, they are definitely pets. I like to think that most of us who make it more than a few years in the hobby grow attached to our fishes. Over time you can really see how much personality they have and see signs of real intelligence. It's especially endearing when they start eating out of your fingers. TBH one reason I was hoping to sell them all at once is so I don't have to go through the heartbreak over and over as I say goodbye to them one at a time. But of course I prioritize their welfare over my heartbreak. I'm particularly going to dread saying goodbye to my lawnmower and my mandarin. The ones with aaaaaalllll that personality. *snif*
