Hey all

I know a lot of you guys don't know me, but I'm having an emergency and don't know quite what to do. As lick would have it, yesterday I broke my hip and am in the hospital. I'll be here for three days at least. Went it rains it pours. While I'm in the hospital, my children call me and tell me the ceiling is fallign apart from water damage. After trying to figure out what's causing the damage we found out my tank has sprung a leak. So my dilemma is I had some friends who are not fish people clamp the tank temporarily, but I have no circulation. I have an airstone in there. I don't know if there is anyone willing to come grab my corals and fish before they die. If that's a possibility and anyone is willing to to do that I would really appreciate that. You can call me at 8013189706. I have surgery at 5 today. I'll be at the hospital a few days at least. I don't know what's going to happen to my fish


Here's a list of my fish

PS. I'm a little loopy from medication so some of these names might not be exact

Majestic angel large
Yellow angel
Yellow Tang
Orange shoulder Tang
Blue Tang
Atlantic Tang
Two wrasses
Four green chromas
One yellow Gobi
Mated pair of goldbar maroon clowns

Four anemones
Bunch of soft misc leathers
Green bubble anemone
100 lbs of rock

Thanks for even reading this

I have a 55 that is not being used. Has no filter and needs cleaning. I can’t do anything until I get home from work. Let me know and I wish you a speedy recovery.

Just an update. We shared this post on our Facebook page and a bunch of people jumped in to help him out.

His corals and livestock are safe and there are some plans being worked for getting the leaking tank fixed or replaced.

So for now I think things are sorted.
