Yes am trying to downsize my coral . Mostly letting go the pieces I can live with out. Don't want to get rid of everything but also don't want to burden a friend with all my coral in there tank. The plan is to have my tank down for a month or completly down before I move . I really don't want to deal with the tank and all the stuff in the apartment in one day. I do thou still have to sell my place and find a house first before all this will happen.

Hi Chris

I was able to arrange with the builder to allow me access to my new house a week before the closing date so that I could move my tank in prior to the moving date. This allowed me to not have to worry about the tank move on the day of moving. It took me a whole day to move my 135G by itself. To move both my tank and my belongings all on the same day would have been impossible.

Hey thanks for the Article. Starting to think it might be a Atennarius Striatus or Atennarius Hispidus but I could be wrong.

Ya I was thinking of doing the same thing. Was hopping to find a place that was already vacant but could be impossible to do. Just trying to think up all the possibilities and basically plan for the worse. Also glad I am thinking this now and not after I sell this place. Also really don't want to sell off all my live stock just to buy it all back when it is set up again.

When the time comes you can pick the best of my move experience to help you plan yours.

I'm leaning towards the striatus as well.
