leaving the hobby :(


Regrettably, i need to leave the tank and frog hobby. I need to unload all my tanks. There too much to list currently. I will post a more complete inventory later, but suffice it to say the 125 is available, the 75 planted, 30g shrimp tank, 40b drilled, 40b mantella tank, 60g white's tree frog tank, 15g, 29bow, 20L.

Livestock include white cloud mountain minnows, a few cardinal tetras, 1 mantella baroni (frog), 8 mantella betsileo, 6 whites tree frogs, dubia blaptica cockroaches and madagascar hissing cockroaches and about 10 yellow shrimp.

This is pickup only. No shipping, no delivery, no trades, no reasonable offer refused.

Dude,

This makes me sad and I dont even know you other than thru this forum...Hopefully things work out and you can get back into a hobby you enjoy...I know I left the hobby when I was younger and didn't get back in right away because I was always waiting for a bigger living space or to have more money....you never have "more money"....so I finally went to Thrift store last year and got a 20long and stand...Best decision I've made recently..

Good luck - I may PM you about some of your equipment.

Thanks mid. I do appreciate the nice words. I may be able to get back into it. At least i hope to. Only time will tell now.

Feel free to pm me. I'm going to be unloading everything ridiculously cheap or free.

Bill,

Sorry to hear you are taking a break. I am interested in most of your smaller tanks. I won't be a hoarder so I'll wait for others to get their chances first. Let me know what you have left when you have to move them so we can work out something.

Are you staying in Philly?

Van
