Hello. I’m new to the forum but a friend who is a member suggested I post here as I have some fish for sale. I am converting my semi-aggressive 125g to a mixed reef and need to find homes for a V-Tail Grouper, Striped Squirrel, Snowflake Eel (10”), Zebra Eel (10”), Yellow Head Eel (10”), Niger Trigger, Lunare Wrasse, 3 Monos, Tomato Clown. Not asking for LFS prices, just trying to offset a bit of the new sand and rock cost. Message me at (760) 413-9229 if you want specific photos. The Utah Lace Rock has to go too...

Thanks for the welcome. I forgot to update over the weekend that the fish have been re-homed. Shout-out to David at Seaside in Huntington for giving me some credit in the store for my fish.

Tank is a vast wasteland of sand but half my new rock has arrived...so conversion can start soon and I’ll post pics.

The new Bubble Magus HOB skimmer is already broken in...works like a charm!

So at the request of joseserrano, here is a before photo of the fish only system as well as my nano reef. Photo three is today; Monday is reefscape build day. Only rock I’m keeping is my coral fossil (far right).

Finally got everything going (except the media reactor, doser and ato) and I’m so pleased! Life Rock scape came out great, new Current Loop Bluetooth system is awesome and the black Hawaiian sand looks so cool! Some may disagree with the ‘canary in a coal mine’ terminology or approach, but after a week I checked water parameters and all appeared safe so before moving my corals and livestock, I took a polyp frag I had and bought a purple fire fish and a neon dottyback.

Happy to report all doing well and eating...although fish hiding in this photo. I guess that’s what happens when you keep your bacteria alive during the move in a bucket! #serasiporax Looks like the move can happen soon; waiting a week to be safe.

Stoked about the lighting I installed in the cabinet too...no more flashlight! Excuse the inventory; moving two cabinets into one is a challenge until some of the chemicals get used up - lol.

Until next time fellow reefers...
