no I knew a bunch "fish people" over there and sold all my tanks to good homes. Army moving large glass tanks didn't sound to me like my tanks would make it so I figured I'm better up giving them all up and start over again here - Not a experience I ever need to make again I can tell ya that.
My 1 gal she took half of my tanks (4) and we worked all Sat breaking them down setting them up...when she was gone and it was over and I had this empty spot in the livingrm I broke down & cried like a baby over my fish (of cause hubby couldn't understand why I cry over "just fish")

Well I certainly understand. I was quite upset over the death of 1 Angelfish because I felt like I killed it becuase I had a mini-cycle after my change over. I can't imagine giving up 4 tanks and seeing a large empty spot. BUT, all is well that ends well. Now you have a bunch of beautiful new tanks and you NEVER have to move again (unless it's by YOUR choice)

This lovely fish is included in our Fish Profiles with all the info you originally asked (I think).

The aquarist is one who must learn the ways of the biologist, the chemist, and the veterinarian. [unknown source]

Something we all need to remember: The fish you've acquired was quite happy not being owned by you, minding its own business. If you’re going to take it under your wing then you’re responsible for it. Every aspect of its life is under your control, from water quality and temperature to swimming space. [Nathan Hill in PFK]

Was 8 tanks total but they all got real good homes (otherwise i'd have REALLY freaked out)

Thanks Byron, seen that was just curious on input form people that have them as well.... But honestly I need to figure out / decide if its wise to add a group of them and Cardinal on top the existing stock OR only one or the other
