Most of the tanks with fish in them are all taken care of. Her husband had some friends that hes giving those tanks too. I went there and (was to dark to take pics) there were 3 180+. One had 10 red belly piranhas, thats going to one friend and another is a 150 filled with blood parots. I may still end up recieving that if the guy falls through. There is also a 125 with a male and female Jag. OMG they are beautiful. I was sad I couldnt have the jags but am thankful for everything im recieving.
She has a 4 almost 5 ft iguana thats going to a good home as well! A family came by to pick up a 10gal tank from her and ended up with a full wall cage with all the fixings for Iggy. Shes such a docile iguana, I am going to take some pics if shes still there when I go with the U-Haul 2moro.
This lady is the nicest, we sat and talked for almost 2 hours over her husband and I agreed to help her with all the things she needs. I am going to be going into her attic once everything cleared out because shes on the older side and not as steady on a ladder. Shes overjoyed that her fish keeping husbands stash could go to a fish nerd just like him.

Vinegar-soaked kitchen towels. Wallpaper them on all sides and leave overnight. The next day scrub them down with warm water and vinegar and they'll come up sparkling. The vinegar will have softened and lifted all the rock-hard scale parts.
Worked a dream for me in the past - and no risk of poisoning.

Thats awesome! I wish I could score something like that around here.
Congrats! Glad you're going to take care of her in some way. Us fish folks take care of our own.Angel breeder wanna-be
