Need some help from a fellow Anchorage-ite
 
This is also posted on AK frag swap, but thought I'd post here hoping for more traffic.

It is Anchorage-ite right? Anyway, I'm graduating from college (WSU) and moving back in May to Anchorage. I've got 6 Bronze corys and a betta I've got to get up to AK, but don't know anyone who keeps fish up there that I could send them to for safe keeping while I drive up. Is it possible that anyone could keep them for me for about a week while I make the drive home and get a tank set up? If you haven't any tank space I am more than willing to buy a 10 gal tupperware from Waly-world and leave you an extra filter and heater to set up before I get there. I'd SUPER appreciate it. I'm pretty attached to my little aquakittens and don't want to have to leave them down here.
Thank you!

Hmm I wish I could but im at tank capacity. Same with the store. Of course we do sell way cooler fish than those. You could give them to your lfs and come visit me at AK coral for some exotics! Well anyways have a safe drive in may and im sure ill be running into you when you get here. (our store is the only lfs in town)

:( Well thats poopy. I know the bronze corys are pretty run of the mill beginner aquarium fish, but I love the color contrast between white sand and their bodies. I will be setting up a 75 gal with cories and an undecided schooler, and eventually a 40 or a 55, so I will definitely be seeing you!

Also, I am wondering if you got my email I sent through your website? You have answered my question through your post, but just wondering if you had gotten it through email.

May is a long way away so we'll see

I'll be there in March and can buy a tupperware, filter, and heater for them then! But yeah, I guess I'll really be freaking out when I'm up there in March, and then again in May.

Just a thought - you might want to weigh the cost of shipping the cories versus simply buying new ones when you get up there. Add in the risk of shipping, and the possible store credit, or even cash.

As for the betta, as I know that people get attached to them, they can survive for long periods in ridiculously small containers. Think about a huge jar with a lid that you open at rest stops and overnights. Or even a 5g bucket belted in to the passenger seat :)
