    Had to get rid of everything in Richmond but MTS strikes no matter where I live. Have 12 Blue platinum angels coming in tomorrow and 8 Platinum paraiba angels. House I live in has many tanks so using house tanks for them.

    that sucks moving and having to leave your fish. i have been luck and dont have to many fish and have moved with them. (long moves too from Oregon to Florida and Florida to Ohio) but might have to if i end up going to brasil (my parents talk about it a lot but never manifested but who knows my mom moved from there and wants to move back now lol)

    hope your tanks come along with out major hitches

    Congrats on what sounds like a successful move.

    this is the planter I made with pink marble and lava rocks no plants in it yet

    The leafs on the left are oak branches heated in the oven and dried in the sun for a week on the right is plants in a cut down milk jug with pink marble pieces leaned against it.

    your avatar looks like my platinum phillipine blue.

    Congrats on the move, It took me two weeks to move my tanks two blocks lol. We moved from SoCal to chicago we had to get rid of everything too, a 5# texas cichlid named DUKE, several CA cichlids, 18" pleco ect even the 250g tank was sold because of the cross country move, But yes it took years for even a tank to strike the house again but when it did MTS went into full effect.

    Congrats on the move and post some pics of those paraiba's, I might be interested well I know im interested but yeah maybe we can work something out when they are paired off for you. I got a 75g tank with 5 adult angels and the school they do(half a v formation, think 85 da bears) its kinda neat .
    Well congrats on the move, MTS and the awesome find of pink marble. I just found over 300 pounds of dead coral and liverock on the side of the river.
