Hi guys, I was on this forum a long time ago but  couldn't recall my user name login etc - so have joined as a new member today.

After much thought we are downsizing our stock rather than investing in a bigger tank - and so looking to relocate some big fish that are no longer happy and need more space.

X1 yellow belly regal tang
X1 naso tang
X2 maroon clownfish (x1 white stripe x1 gold stripe).

They are currently housed in a 278litres tank - an ea reef 1200s  (120 x60 x 45)

Reluctant to pass them on to our lfs as woukd like more assurance that they will go to a tank that is suitable for their size.  Would like to ensure that wherever they go it'll be suitable for their size and needs.

If anyone has a really big tank talk to me :)
Would be collection - and we're in Bedfordshire so keep travelling distance in mind.

Thanks for reading, will try to upload some photos in a comment.

Honestly just more concerned about relocating them to a tank fitting for their size and to someone who will be able to look after them properly.  Wouldn't want them sold on or end up in a small tank. 
A nominal amount I guess as we'll then be looking to get a few smaller types to re stock with.
Sorry I'm being vague, it is a reluctant relocation - but it's just obvious now that they are (especially the regal) too big for our tank.
