Military Fish/Plants

Thought I might try and start a Thread for Military hobbyists. seeing as were constantly moving and trying to get rid of Plants, Tanks and Fish, so I figured I'd start a thread to see If I could make life easier.

Prior navy but when we pcsed my tank was broken so I quit until I got out. Looking back i think that was a mistake. should of just buy cheap stuff and resell it prior to move. I was in japan too and miss out on seeing japanese fish/plants offerings. Sepulvd u in Okinawa or mainland

Awesome
I'm glad to see so many posts already

I know there are a lot of people out there coming and going and I know a lot of the time I'm looking to give stuff away rather than donating to a LFS

I set up a social group also to see if I cant make it easier to help each other out. Even if your not Military but live near a base you might be able to benefit from the thread or Social group

I am in Groton, CT near the Subbase and Coast Guard Academy.

I would love to trade and help out any local service people that are local. Let me know!

can my helmet meet your helmet?

base housing for family is fine, but fish tank in Barracks? no.
no pet policy in Barracks, because too many animals, can't fit anymore smaller ones, lol.

another joke is if there is fish tank in the Barracks, chance of fish been swallowed alive is pretty high, especially on the weekends, after everyone gets sh*t face.

Great Thanks that's very kind of you

Does anyone know of a better way of trying to circulate this thread.
My intentions are to provide a Forum thread where people active duty, retired or even people who live near a military installation can go to Buy/Sell or trade items easier due to the Nature of their Jobs relocating every couple of years.
