‘‘Tis with a heavy heart I’ve concluded I need to try to find new homes for the last members of my little fish community. A series of fatalities and technical tank issues including (on going! ) leaks and lighting problems have nailed the final nails in my nano tanks coffin. With a huge amount of guilt I can no longer afford time or £ to keep these guys in the surroundings they deserve. It’s been a great 10+ years but both my beautiful true percula clown (female) and a handsome pistol shrimp (must be 8yrs!) need a loving retirement home. Now I accept these guys are oldies but they just keep going and as their tank buddies go on to the big reef in the sky these fellas keep going. Unfortunately they find themselves now in a tank with nothing but ghosts, bristle worms and pods for company and it’s starting to fall apart around them. Both are  in good condition I would love to find a safe and happy home for them. If you are local to Bournemouth and have the skills, capacity and inclination to take one (preferably both) then please get in touch. And please don’t give me a hard time, I know my moral responsibilities to these guys, just trying to do my best here  :heyyy:

Hey nobody is going to give you a hard time.

I’m sorry to hear your reef tank has had a decline.

Fingers crossed, someone can come and take the survivors and you can move on with your life.

No hobby lasts forever but it seems you’re doing the best you can to take care of those still with us.

All the best.
