Now that everything is beginning to take shape, I had to make a decision. As many of you know, I am moving to Florida to what I hope will become my permanent home. This of course means taking down my fishroom again and setting up a new one in the garage of my new house. In a sense, since I am using a professional moving company … I will not have to work as hard. Thank goodness. I am in poor enough shape as it is and need a little more work or a new body.
I have been considering what I want to do with the garage and various ideas come into my head. The new garage will be 21×21 square feet. The current fish area in my basement is 13×10 more or less including sink and . If split the garage in half I will get a 10x 21 area for the tanks but most likely will need to add a deep sink and counters somewhere as the first step. Water and a work space is important. I will be moving counters with me which saves on building a new one.
I really hate getting rid of my fish again. I will mostly bring them to the next UNYKA meeting and essentially dumping them on my friends. The way this move and construction will be, I will have no place for the fish until the new house is ready and that is probably sometime in November. So once again I get to start all over again. I am debating even going to the convention in Louisville, simplt because of the huge temptation of species that will occur. That is truly a sad concept. I really want to go. I probably will end up there anyway. There has never been a show like this one.
Thie moving sucks, but living in isolartion sucks more … the nearest pet shop is 40 miles away and it is a Pet Smart. otherwise I rive 150 miles to Albany.
Oh well, whining does not get me any closer to packing things.
