    Made the Move

    As many of you may know I've been in the process of changing jobs and moving the family. It's been a long process but we found a place in Dolores, Colorado (1 hour from Durango) the family and fish all made the move nicely. I had moved the freshwater fish back in November to my office but had been dreading the salt water move. Below you can see the pictures of how I made the move with all the fish and coral without losing anything... Yet.... And it's all looking good already! Most of the coral and small fish Road in one 30 gallon trash can filled about three-quarters of the way with salt water from the tank, while the lion rode in his own 30 gallon trash can with one piece of rock. I added a air stone and bubbler to each trash can and ran an extension cord the length of the truck plugged into an inverter in the cigarette lighter. It was quite a journey but we're glad to be here and all the fish are doing well I look forward to maintaining my activity level in the club as much as possible from this distance as there are no clubs I have found in the area yet.

    Congrats on the successful move. I like the extension cord. Very clever.

    Nope, not at all.... I was worried about that and had the adapter for the direct battery hookup.
