In a sticky situation

Hello everyone. I am so excited to finally announce that i've started my first saltwater tank :). It took a good 2 hours to set up, but it looks great. I am doing a FOWLR tank and I only have live rock as of right now. I took the live rock from my friends healthy saltwater aquarium. I have a little situation though. I am at college and I am going home in 3.5 weeks. I will be gone for 5 days. And then after that I go home December 17 for a month. I dont know what to do about the tank, and is it going to be possible for me to get a clownfish by then with all this moving?

Not a good idea.

How do you plan on keeping up with the tank for a month? Are you bringing your tank home with you for that month? And then bringing it back? That's a lot of agitation for a fish.

I know. I am going to wait off to get a fish until after I return to college. I would never put a fish under that kind of stress.

Great idea to wait!! It will give your tank time to age anyways!
