    Oops, I've done it again!

    Getting another tank :P
    Friend of mine is getting out of the hobby as she's moving and the new place is too small, I'll be inheriting a 55 gal w/ salt, stand, sump, skimmer, filter, lights, livestock, liverock etc..
    Waiting for specs on equipment and what all comes with it but for livestock I know she has the following:
    Damsel
    Foxface
    CUC
    Eel
    Blenny
    2 false perculas
    Chocolate chip star (lol!!! another one to get rid of..)

    plus more I don't know what yet..
    price is right!

    Getting ready for the move and am wondering if I should take all, part or none of the sand. I think there is beneficial bacteria in there but current owner says there are gas bubbles in the sand and doesn't know what they are from..
    Suggestions?

    Yeah that's what I thought. Not only does it have good bacteria, but it's expensive to replace!
    Thanks once again Liv..

    Well we start the move tomorrow..
    Here's the plan:

    Friday:
    Put livestock in bags, place in styrofoam box
    Put LR in buckets w/ tank water
    Take those home..

    Saturday:
    Take trailer, pick up tank, stand, sump equipment, sand etc.
    Don't think the tank will fit in the Jeep, have to do some measuring tonight. If it does, great.. If it doesn't, we'll have to take it back with the trailer. If this is the case we're thinking of wrapping it in cardboard and blankets to ensure no stray rocks hit it. We'll place it on top of styrofoam board for the trip.

    Any feedback on this plan?
