you got pm
02/27/2006, 03:05 AM
your PM box is full
I'm interested in all your zoos and ricordeas.
02/27/2006, 07:02 AM
I'll take the frogspawn if not already spoken for and any zoos Vitesse304 doesn't want.
02/27/2006, 07:22 AM
it would be very sad to see you leave the hobby. I have a 75 gallon qt tank you are welcome to use until you get yours going again.
It is difficult I know but please consider parking your livestock as much as possible with people until you can re-establish a tank.
Part of the reason I go with acrylic is because I have seen too many tank failures on glass. Scarey and depressing.

If you indeed sell everything what is the best way to get setup a time? PM, phone call, email? Thanks
02/27/2006, 07:38 AM

RA, Lane here,
Sorry for your misfortune. What may I do to help? I still have that frozen food of yours in my freezer. Do you want me to bring it by? Or sell it for you?
I would love to come over and help you out. Call me
02/27/2006, 04:29 PM
you got pm
02/27/2006, 06:02 PM
what about the equipment
02/27/2006, 06:07 PM
Okay, a few details. First, I have to go to California for a week and I leave on SAT, So those of you who hoped to see the stuff this weekend I'm sorry but that won't work. I hope that I can get the bioload down tonite, Wed and Fri night enough that every thing will be OK while I'm gone and then we can finish the liquidation.
Second there seems to be a great deal of interest in the rics and zoas. I have more color types than I can even remember but heree goes Zoas very bright orange, fire and ice, Purple, lighter orange, brown of course. The rics : blue fringe, marble cream, orange, red, Pale green and more. I think that the best way for these is first come first served.
The Mandarin was claimed last night by Brandon. Sorry.
Alkoenig has the 5 head Frog spawn and Urchin.
Nox haven gets Some Chaeto if he can get it before the weekend. Lance one gets the saddle clown.
raymont the Desjardini tang.
dumanny the Chromis and a share of the Chaeto
and bbeddow has viewing rights on the biggest toadstool leather, though I have smaller ones.
The best way is to stop by and take a look I have sooooo much not listed ie Blastomussa merletti, Acanth lord, etc.

Equipment will go after the livestock and I have plenty, I'll probably flood the used market.
There is also available now roughly 300 lbs of LR rich in life, and ready to denitrify. $3.00/lb Some with extra life will have a premium for the livestock.
02/27/2006, 06:17 PM
pm'd you ....
02/27/2006, 06:25 PM

02/27/2006, 07:39 PM

02/27/2006, 07:49 PM

02/28/2006, 09:17 AM
RA, f you need me to do some work on your stuff while you are gone, just call. I will be happy to do it.
02/28/2006, 09:42 AM
I'll take your acans and blastos. You got some nice chunks of those and will save me from fragging mine.
02/28/2006, 10:12 PM

02/28/2006, 10:28 PM

02/28/2006, 11:33 PM
Can you give us an updated list?
03/01/2006, 01:42 AM
I'd take some sand (sugar or southdown) if any's still available when I can get over there.
03/01/2006, 04:36 AM
Deeparchae, sent you a pm. When would you be available to see the tank and whats left. This afternoon or tomorrow perhaps.
03/01/2006, 07:39 AM
I will try and get an updated list tonite. I want to focus right now on the livestock as it is not stable in the tanks right now. When I get back from Cali, I will start posting the hardware. By the way my aggressive FOWLR will be going as well after I get back, but as it is stable I want to concentrate on the corals and reef-safes right now.
I WILL BE AVAILABLE TONITE AND FRI AFTER SIX, PLEASE COME BY AND HELP ME LOWER THE BIOLOAD.
