A tribute to my fish
 
Well I thought I would put up some of my fish as I will not have them much longer. They are great don't get me wrong, but after months of research my husband and I have decided to convert my 55gallon into a Marine Reef tank. So very soon I will be giving back my fish to my lfs where I purchased them. I am sure they will be fine I have a very good lfs been in business over 25yrs.

Two Oscars
Bichir
Two clown knife

Hi llaustin,
Your fish are nice. I understand you'll be moving to the Marines.
Good luck with the next challenge.:)

Yes Blue we are going to the marine side soon.. Very excited about it. Should be a learning experience all its own.

That's nice, llaustin. Again, good luck.
I used to keep salties myself but it lasted only 2 years.

llaustin,
Just some advice, take your time doing it. I switched about 2 years ago. What setup are you doing reef/FOSW.

Trust me we are taking our time have been researching and talking about it for a while now not really planning on haveing everything done till late this year early next year. We are planning on a Marine reef set up. Calm fish thinking of blenny, pair of clowns and maybe some firefish. Just a nice relaxing tank to watch.

I do like my O's but the knife fish are my favorite and they are gonna be the hardest to give up. But I look at it this way a reef set up is so much more interesting and there is so much to learn about them and watching things grow and it is just a completely different fish experience. I know the whole family will enjoy the experience not just me and thats what counts.

I don't understand why you would get rid of the current tank....why not just setup a new one? That way you can have the best of both worlds.
