    Grow on tank/set up for sale and possibly full pond setup with koi for good homes

    Hi all, its been a long while. So no beating around the bush, long story short the house is on the market and we are looking to move hopefully soon. The place we are setting our hearts on doesnít have half the size of garden as here and a pond will no doubt be lower down the list of priorityís. A few fish will be going to relatives but they cant take them all. Its going to break my heart but some are going to have to go i think.
    The main thing I need out the way is the grow on/hosp tank though. Its a freestanding 1100 ltr solid formed fibreglass tank with 2Ē bottom drain fitted. I will get all the measurements properly and put them here and also If i can link my grow on build and grow on threads from a few years back here for anyone more interested. Unfortunately It would be pick up only from hull area but will go in the back of a transit van (just i think). Its still a bit early days but i will list anything on here over the coming weeks. No doubt have a few UV units, and bits and bobs like rubber boots etc... that can go.
    There will very likely be a QK22 standalone drum for sale too once the fish are sorted. I wont want silly money just something to go in the pot for the future.
    Cheers
    Lee

    Sad news that the pond is closing for now mate. Tough call but youíve got to follow your heart.

    As and when the QK22 is in need of a new home do you let me know, drop me a PM if you can, as Iíd be interested for sure. Thanks. Gray.

    I had the same when moving my Dadís Koi from my Mumís to my place. Broke my heart to empty a 30yr old pond that I grew up with. But now I can see the Koi everyday at my place. Every cloud, etc I guess.

    Cheers re the drum mate, genuinely interested and no rush or pressure from my side. Just whenever. Thanks.

    No worries at all mate Grow on tank/set up for sale and possibly full pond setup with koi for good homes like you say every cloud. All this just came out of no where to be honest. The mrs planted the seed looking at houses and so we looked into it a bit further and thought why not, lets get it done.

    Sorry guys, im still trying to work something out with a relative who may be able to hold some of my bigger fish for me. Part of it would be using the tank to home some of his own smaller fish (grow them on so to speak) and this could be for a good year too which gives me time to get sorted etc.. the tank is unfortunately already reserved if this doesnt happen though to big H
