    Partner got the job of her dreams so we're moving to Omaha. I'm looking for
    someone to hang onto my fish during the move and ship them to me once I have
    my tanks set up. I have 2 tanks, a 20 and a 10,that you can have to house
    them and keep afterwards. I will pay you for fish-sitting time, especially
    since with a PCS move you're never quite sure when your stuff is coming to
    you. I don't have a definitive date yet but probably some time in December.
    At this point I'm just putting barbels out to see who's interested.
    Fish from my 90 gallon: 7 rhombo barbs, a school of harlequin rasboras, 3
    Amazon puffers, 2 tiny blue angels, 3 apisto macmasterii, 7 bn plecos, 2
    L-164, 7 green cory, 3 agazzizi cory, 3 blue Cory, 3 similis Cory, 3 orange
    laser cory, elegans cory, honeycomb cat
    From my tiny tank: 10 CPD, orange shrimp
    My natives should be ok going with us for a 3 day drive since they like the
    cold, and the bettas can come into the hotel at night, but the logistics of
    getting the tropicals there in the middle of winter are just too much so I
    decided to have them shipped.

    The fish I need new homes for are my 2 discus (6" blue ghost and 4" yellow
    diamond listed in classifieds), a trio of Barilius malabaricus (need a LONG tank, listed in classifieds), an Atabapo
    butterfly pleco, one enormous Pygmy Cory, a couple bn plecos, a splash terra,
    and 3 small koi. Also selling a couple small tanks: 7 gallon tall and 2
    gallon hex. UV sterilizer: turbo twist with new bulb, maybe a few other
    things.

    Please message me if you're interested, or email direct swamp-rat@hotmail.com

    Hi swamp-rat,

    Hmm, do not see any local aquarium clubs in your new area but a couple possible saltwater. Looks like you may have to start your own!

    Also I'll be within driving distance of "home" in Chicago area so I'm sure I'll hit up some events there.
    And I'll maintain my GSAS membership.

    Yep. @FishBeast is correct. Technically, we live in Bennington, NE which is a "suburb" of Omaha. I was born and raised in Omaha and work for Omaha Fire Dept. Let me know if you need help with anything. Not much for freshwater aquarium society (like none), but I know some of the guys involved in the saltwater side.

    I've actually decided to downsize even more, so the only ones for sure coming are 3 amazon puffers, 3 orange laser cories, 3 similis cories, 2 L-164 plecos, 4-5 bristlenose, 6 honeycomb cats, 10 cpd, 4 male and 4 female bettas, and some orange shrimp. If there's room I'd like to take more (especially my snakeskin barbs) but I'm keeping these for sure. My native fish will come in the car with me since cold isn't an issue for them.
    Right now it looks like December, not sure exactly when. My partner is possibly flying there next week and we should know more after that.
