We have a marine tank set up which we have had for quite a few years. It has taken us a long time to get it established, and we have two clown fish, a picasso triggerfish, a shrimp, a long horned cow fish and a Dory, as well as live rock. However, money is very tight at the minute and we need to look at ways of saving money each month. It would save us a fortune if we didn't have the tank, as the cost of keeping it is very expensive. Just wondered if anyone had any idea on how to find our fish new homes? Would be great if we could get some money for them but also want them to go to good homes, maybe I will need to home check!
Are there any local marine FB groups for your area? I have a few and there are keen marine keepers on them. I'm sure you could sell them on those and be sure they are looked after. Same goes for the tank, usually it is better to break it down, as someone might need a light unit, someone else a skimmer etc..
Other option would be local marine shop, but I don't think you can ask for money. Maybe store credit, but if you give up the hobby you won't need it anyway.
If you are in Staffordshire I might even take some of it off you ;)
Thanks for the replies, am going to try to find some FB groups and see if we get any interest. Don't really want to get rid of them but it is so expensive it is a luxury we cannot afford. Am in bucks so bit of a way from staffs!
