    Due to my mother's illness, 3 teenagers, and working full time, I have come to the realization that I have no time to myself for a hobby. I will be supporting the club and will stay a part of the club until after the Frag Swap in August.

    I will be selling out (cheap) all of my corals, fish and equipment. Everything works great and corals and fish are thriving.

    Since Brandon is hosting the next meeting, my house is 5 minutes from his, anyone who wants some of my stuff could swing by.

    PM me if interested and I'll send you my contact number.

    Fish:

    Mandarin Dragonet Green - fat and happy, eats mysis shrimp
    Gold Stripe Maroon Clownfish - medium
    BiColor Blenny dark blue and orange
    Seahorses - 2 Black, needs to be fed mysis shrimp 2 times a day and needs weekly water changes. Please only take these if you're willing to put in the time required.

    Corals--wide range of corals. Alot of these could be fragged and resold at the Frag Swap.

    Lots of live rock -- 100 pounds with coraline and Xenia growing in it
    I also kept adding pods so the rocks are teaming with pods for a mandarin fish to live on.

    non-live rock -- 40 pounds

    55 gallon thick glass tank (unknown brand)
    ProClear filtration with skimmer
    VHO 4 bulb light system (homemade) with 2 actinic and 2 superwhite
    2 PFO ballasts
    30 gallon tank with stand (setup for seahorses)

    Its always sad to see someone leaving the hobby. Please keep in touch and when things slow down for you Well all chip in and get you started again! It wont be the same without all the zenia and cap frags at the meetings! I hope the best for you, and pray you will have the strength to continue helping your family.

    You're out of PM space Rev, so I'm posting here.

    The seahorses are in a 30 gallon tank (with stand) with 2 seahorses, snails, grass and rocks. I have a hang on filter and the skimmer.

    They just need clean water and mysis shrimp 2 times a day. I keep saltwater mixed up in a 5 gallon bucket, and swap out 2 gallons each week.

    I'll take $75 for the whole setup (I paid $45 each just for the seahorses, so I feel this is a good deal).

    Let me know.
    Angela

    Sorry I didn't see your message Rev, but I wasn't home all weekend. Had mom stuff to deal with.

    I'm home every weekday though. I'll PM you my number.

    This offer is only for local pickup.
