    Just wondering how far is Oak Harbor from Tukwila ? And how big is the tank ? What kind of set up ? Just to have an idea how much time will take to do maintenance etc

    It's about 2 hours from Everett. The tank is a mixed reef 400g system 250g display. I don't dose anything just do water changes every month. The tank has LEDs for lighting and a mrc skimmer. It's all controlled with an aqua jr. It has auto top off so you will need to just fill the 30g brute with fresh rodi water, I have a typhoon 3 rodi setup and all you will need to do is turn on the hose hook up.

    So basically just feed, water change, skimmer cleaning. I would hopefully like someone local my roommate will be here but she has no idea what to do.

    A bit of training will go a long way in your case. It would be nice to be in touch with someone who is with the tank on a daily basis.
    You cant possibly know how you want to run your reef-system, until you have ran one.

    I'm in Tukwila, so I'm too far to volunteer for anything on a regular basis really, but I will volunteer for 'emergency contact' type stuff if it helps.

    This sounds like a job for North Sound Reefers!! where all you guys at with your pretty little banner sigs? lol Seriously, there are some pretty cool cats up that aways, I am sure you will get more than a few offers to help as this thread gains some visibility. Just choose wisely, there was a horror story on here a few years back about a guy who went on deployment and somehow his wife sold or otherwise lost the tank, dont remember the details, but he was none to happy.
    Glass, water, and fish..
    all else is extraneous
