    I have to vacate the tank that NAAC so kindly lent me when mine burst a while back. Unfortunately my new tank is not yet up and running.

    Does anyone have a spare tank knocking around that I could borrow for a few months?
    My livestock is currently crammed into a 1.4m, so ideally something like 1.6m, but any offers kindly entertained.

    Please call me urgently on 082 378 2800 if you can help.

    Thanks Frans - most kind of you.

    As stop gap I've bought a pair of standard 1,2m tanks the LFS, which will become part of my multil-storey sump when I get there. Until then they will be a temporary home for my corals and fish.

    Jiss gotta do some cunning plumbing now... ;-)

    So the bad news is that I discovered the hard way today that my temporary accommodation is less than adequate. Today I lost:

    1 x Acanthurus Japonicus
    1 x Flame Angel
    1 x Sailfin Tang
    1 x Nomu Trigger
    1 x Goldie
    1 x Lawnmower Blenny
    1 x Chorris (sp?) Wrasse
    1 x Fire Shrimp

    and a few others - too distraught to remember ;-).
    Pretty sure some of my SPS will bite the dust soon too.
    Cause is probably a combination of poor temperature control, inadequate flow, and general lack of oxygen in one of my three holding tanks.

    So this is an impassioned call for assistance.

    Anyone who can offer some temporary accommodation for corals and fish near Newlands, Cape Town, please shout on 082 378 2800, urgently.

    I'll also start a new thread, as the title on this one is unlikely to light anyone's fires of compassion ;-)

    A sad reefer...
