Knowing Allen and I are going to be holding fish for a week, we are starting to prepare. I went out today and filled 6 tanks I had outside. I see one I'm going to have to resealed already. I have 6 more that are filled with water. I'll let them hold for the rest of the day to see if they are going to leak. I'm going to my fish room today and see what fry I can move. I think I'll have 6 x 20 gallons ready in the fish room. With the 6 in the garage and the 7 outside that will give me 13 tanks. I also have 3 rubber-made bins I could use if I have too. This will give me 16 holding tanks.

I know Allen is starting to move fish around to make room at his store. We have cycled sponge filter ready for them already. We just have make sure we have the room for all the fish

it sounds like your doing a great job. if it wouldnt be too much to ask what precautions are you taking to enshure that species do not get mixed up? you may have already coverd this and i missed it.

We are tying to have over 30 tanks open for your fish. We already have the tanks ready for our fish. We will label each tank with the species and who it belongs too. These tank will be species only tanks. WE WILL NOT MIX ANY SPECIES.

Nothing will be combined, each species will have their own tank, so there will be no questions about mixed fish.

are you going to keep species only with each buyer? or just species only then seperate for each buyer?

now that i asked it makes sense to put all of one species together then separate later.

Is there a current estimate as to when the fish fly across the pond to California?
