    I know this is the same day as the Pot Luck but I am a little stuck with other options!

    I am moving the LR/Livestock from a 100g in San Ramon to my new 120g tank in Dublin, along with all the equipment following tear down.

    If any folks are around locally I would really appreciate some help :)

    Would offer to help but I can't spare more time than going to the meeting, and I'd be coming from sf. Sorry, and good luck!

    Unfortunately the current owners are leaving in the PM for LA for a week so I'm a little stuck.

    I can give you a hand for hour and a half or so before I have to go to the potluck.

    So after an exceptionally long day everything ended up surprisingly well! HUGE shout out to
    @Wlachnit for helping me out for hours in the morning - Helped out no end and great company.

    Started out a little dismayed as my tank was a complete sand cloud.

    This was followed by a bulkhead leak which took a few hours to fix up also.

    Meant we had to add all the rock and coral blind! Best I could do was lay everything flat for now then I do some aquascaping later.

    Here's what I just woke up to:

    Clam seems quite healthy still.

    Cleaner Shrimp also doing just fine.

    I am probably looking to trade it as it's too big for me really...
