Moving to Austin next month

Recommended Posts

Hey all, it's great to see Austin has a reef community!

I'll be moving from California next month, so I'm trying to locate local shops etc. to get set up again. Unfortunately I don't think shipping will be viable so I've been selling off stock here.

Any suggestions on good shops/frag swaps?

First, welcome to Austin and ARC. There are a lot of really good people here and in Austin in general. Any of our sponsors will take good care of you as far as livestock and equipment. I'm particularly partial to Fishy Business.. Shane's never steered me wrong with livestock and advice.

Welcome!

You might also consider shipping some of your livestock to one of our LFS. They might hold your fish/corals for you until your tank is set up here.

Not sure how well shipping would work, but for a few choice pieces it's definitely an option. Everything in your tank now has been overnighted at least once and made it safely :(

+1 to the LFSs being able to take care of you. There's also the usual internet suspects if you want variety or are on a very tight budget. We've even got local custom tank builders, professional tank care services, and cherry-pick coral importers among other things within a half hour or so of the center of the city.

Not as sure about the frag swaps though. Lots of activity in the livestock and trade forums for smaller scale stuff, and more than a few members with extensive frag tanks, but otherwise it seems to be mostly the frag swap meetings. I don't know of many others at least.
