Hi fish aficionados,
I have had a 29 gallon tank for a bit over two years, but will need to find a new home for my little guys soon, as we will be moving cross country. No known ick or other infections, and all seem stable and healthy. I have three black neons, two black skirt neon, two green corys and a lonely spotted cory of one of the types: punctatus, brevirostris, ambiacus, agassizii, or false spotted. I recently re homed a leopard pleco, and the tank could use a smaller variety as well as shoal mates for my lonely cory. The others more or less ignore him, I'm afraid.
Also, I think the tank should be refit with sand and a cave for the corys. Is there an aquarium enthusiast locally who could adopt these little guys , keep them happy and healthy, or make them more so? They could go with or without the tank as fits your needs. Thank you, AnnieM

Thanks a lot, Sin In Style.

I am not out of time, but the offer is much appreciated. Have someone interested in adopting the crew who is quite experienced. Will see if that works out.

Ok I just wanted to say, I miss going to portsmouth every summer

Growing up we'd drive to portsmouth and catch the ISSCO boats out to Star island, my grandparents were the caretakers out there till they retired 10 or so years ago.

Thats where my avatar was shot, oh a few dozen years ago.

*sigh* good times, good times.

Good luck finding a home for the tanks. Might check with the schools in the area, maybe one would like to take it on as a project?

^_^

Hi again Babelfish,

By chance are your grandparents Edith and her husband, whom we know from church and other things? Our church is affiliated with Star Island.

What an awesome couple, whether you're family or not!

Portsmouth is lovely, but too spendy for us to stay here after retirement soon.

Thats my grammy and grampy



Yeah it does seem that the town has changed a lot since the early 80's when I first started going (as a little fish).

Might the church adopt the tank? There was a thread around, somewhere here about someone setting up a tank in their church.

Hi Babelfish,

All I have to say is that you come from sturdy, wonderful, generous and ethical stock!

I think a local guy is going to come get my setup this weekend; cross my fingers.

Babel, that was me, I set it up in the church office. It kind of depends on my being here to maintain it though.
