At least they used the older pic.  Now you don't have to stress about the fungia!  😛

My thoughts exactly!  Goodbye, 20g!  I can take it down when I take down my volcano pico after the voting is done for that.

I offered a more recent one with the aqua blue backlighting, but they wanted pink.  So I had to dig further back to the pre-fungia days.

Oh that is some nice algae, love the shaving brushes

Oooh.  Very nice.

 

Unfortunately, none of the new macroalgae look that great.  For whatever reason shipping took extra long and the box was all beat up, so things started to decline.  Thanks, USPS!  Hopefully some will pull through tho.

I've had mine delayed 2 days with no heat pack in 30F weather. Looked crap for a few days but have pulled through now. 

How are the Fungia's getting on? Mine has caused no amount of amusement lately squishing Leather Corals on the sandbed 🙄

Fungia are fine.  The red one seems to move about a little.  My cactus caulerpa looks almost all gone and the shaving brush are turning more and more white.  So we shall see.

Y'all think I'm joking, but I may actually have to take this tank and my other tanks down.  😭😭

 

Going to be moving out of state (very last minute) and I don't know how to get these tanks to where I'm going.  I'm majorly bummed.  I love this tank.  So so sad right now.

Ouch, that's really rough, these glass boxes are tough to move, the animals inside them even harder... especially on short-notice. Damn man, I hope you can figure something out for your favorites, maybe a glass jug with a small heater or battery-bubbler?
No clue, no real tips, just hope the move goes well and things settle-down quickly.

We have to fly to our new destination and movers will move stuff in trucks (probably take days), so I don't think either would work for transporting tank inhabitants.  We may have to move a couple times when we get there as well, so trying to move the tanks will be hard.  Ugh.  This really sucks. 

 

Will have to probably sell off everything.  Ideally find someone to buy the whole set-up and continue to post photos on Instagram or Nano-reef.com.  LOL.  Or I could sell off just the livestock and maybe move my tank and live rock (dry) and start all over from scratch when things have settled for me.  Either way, pretty stressful.  omgomgomg

You've got awesome livestock, hopefully it won't be too hard to find some interested locals. Crazy how much harder it can be for individuals to make sales compared to retailers sometimes though.

That’s so sad, this is one of my favourite tanks. I hope you can find a solution that works for you.

Definitely sad.  I was looking forward to seeing this tank grow out.  And it definitely is one of my favorites out of all the tanks I've set up over the years.

Definitely a good move for me and my family.  Just no good for the tank.  Farewell, 20g with no catchy name.

Glad to hear it's going to be a good move. You'll be back with an even better tank I'm sure. When's the move happening?

Ugh.....

Obviously you're moving for work and it's a benefit to your family...but I'm sorry to hear you need to take down your tanks.

Where are you moving to?

Moving last week of this month.  Happening real fast.  Hopefully my next tank will happen sooner than later tho.

Thanks.  Yah, the only sad part about the move is taking down my tanks.  But excited for the relocation otherwise.  Moving to Seattle from Southern California.

Certainly a bit-more Mediterranean in climate, oregan and washington are both interesting states, SoCal can be blistering at times. The further-up along the westcoast you go the more out-of-place the weather feels XD Last-week of this month is insanely-short notice though, yikes.

Sadly i think it would be easier to start from scratch, you could keep the lights for sure, but the tanks may be difficult to pack

Tigah no! The poor 20g cactus tank! I was so excited to see it grow in and thrive. 😭

 

I understand though... sometimes life just throws you a curve ball like that. And I'm happy to hear that the move will be a net positive for you and your family! Do you think you'd bring the tank along and set it up anew in your new home? Or will you sell everything off and... upgrade!? 😍

Not sure about the Caulerpa as I have not kept those myself, but the shaving brush will likely "die" and drop all its bristles, then resprout from its rhizome a few days later. They do this very frequently after shipping and replanting.

I agree.  I think I'm going to sell off all livestock and maybe the LR too, but keep lights and all the equipment except for the tank itself.  Then when I settle, I'll get another tank and start over from scratch.  What a bummer for this tank tho.  😭

I'm tempted to just buy a new IM 20g Peninsula.  😂  But we'll see.  I could go a different route.  Hopefully I'll be settled down in a couple months and I can start over.  

 

Anyway, I'll work on getting the last couple FTSs for this tank before I sell off.

I will miss this fun tank. I hope the move goes well and doesn't cause to much stress for you and the family. Wishing you all the best. I will look forward to your next tank.

Ahh man, sucks about the move bud. Me and my other half are moving in a few weeks and it's going to be a real pain. Could you ask a local reefer to look after the tank or a few favourite pieces until you're settled?

Not a bad idea.  May have to find someone willing to hold stuff for me in Seattle.  Could ship some coral up there. But I think easier for me to just set up a new tank when I get up there.
