Ok.... I was just chatting with my good friend who is the current assistant GM again at Damon's. He is really doing his best and said to give him till the end of the day tonight. He is giving it a REAL push to get the board that owns Damon's onboard with this. Damon's has numerous "owners" that need to all agree on any happenings there. No guarantees...but at least after tonight we will know for sure if Damon's is a definite No or a go.

Thor please let us know how it goes tonight at Damons. It would be great if Rufus ended up there so we could all visit him.

Sure hope that pans out at Damon's
Thanks for your efforts Thor!

It has been over 7 hours since asking without a reply, has anyone else found out any more information
regarding what the owner wishes to do about Rufus?

Has anyone checked with Amy at the Tonga Hut for a possible new home for Rufus?

What about giving Rufus to an interested "Individual" if Damon's falls through
The clock is ticking for our carrot munching buddy & actions speak louder then words.

Fez doesn't have to give you a response.

Fez Moai is a new member here & does not have the contacts that many of us long time members have in the Tiki community....



So why don't you use your long time member status and contacts and maybe help Fez out? Maybe call Amy yourself and put her in contact with Fez instead of trying to insert yourself into the situation and just stir up shit?

Fez has already answered this question. Do you not read the posts before you post? Fez has stated that he would rather Rufus go someplace where the public can enjoy him instead of into a private situation.

That should have read, "instead of trying to insert yourself into EVERY situation and just stir up shit".

Let's stay on topic for this one! Jefe.

But none of my questions have been answered so far
and some answers would be helpful to everyone interested, not just me.

Also I did not wish to bother Amy if someone already asked her, but that must not have occurred to you.
for once you might try to be helpful instead of argumentative.

The only thing important in this thread is finding a home for Rufus
& I for one will stay focused on that goal.

Edit for spelling mistake.

ATP you really need to stop because you're just really embarrassing yourself.

I am definitely on topic. The points I made and the questions I asked pertain to the topic at hand. If you don't understand that I don't know what to tell you. I also laughed out loud to find myself chastised by you for being accused of going "off topic".

Once again Fez does not owe you an answer. Based on the way you've treated him in the past I wouldn't answer your questions either. It seems there are more than a few people trying to help Fez without the answers you claim will help "everyone". Stop speaking for "everyone".

This is a total cop out. For once you might try not to be argumentative.

I agree. Now use your long term member status and contacts to help Fez out.

To me I think I have been quite productive. I got you to use your long term member status and contacts.

All grumbling aside...I am worried about Rufus and I never have even met him. I know old fish need to stay in their own water when being moved...and slowly changed out for new water that is similar in chemical balance to what they are currently living in. Somebody that knows about fish really needs to also help. I am thinking good thoughts for him and so hope he gets to live amongst the friends who love him in a Tiki bar.

You are right Marlene, any fish, not just old ones, need to stay in their own water when being moved. You can't just physically pick up an aquarium and move it to where you want so what you need to do is try to take as much of the water from the tank with you as you can. The problem is that the bigger the tank the more water it holds and therefore you need more and more, and larger and larger, containers to transport that water.

You also need to transport the gravel if it has any (without cleaning/washing it) so that means more buckets/containers and again, the bigger the tank the more gravel it will generally have in it.

Effectively what you are trying to do is empty the tank, move it, and refill it using everything from where it came from. There will be a small amount of water loss during the process but a small top-up with new water shouldn't be an issue.

Once in it's new location maintainence is the same for any aquarium, regular water changes. Keeping fish is easy, but what you need to remember is that you are a 'water keeper', not a 'fish keeper'. Unlike all other pets, you are providing and in control of a fishes enviroment. If you move from one side of the country to the other, or to another country entirely, besides the surroundings your dog or cat will be breathing the same air. Water chemistry changes and it is up to you, the water keeper, to try to keep the water chemistry as stable and as consistent as possible. By moving the tank as i mentioned above you won't be changing the water chemistry at all so you shouldn't have any problems.

If you plan ahead moving a tank is not hard, just time consuming. When i moved house the tanks were the last things to move and the first things to set up. Not fun and very tiring but the best way of eliminating the possibility of any fish losses.

(20+ years of keeping fish with about 8 in the industry, both wholesale and retail. I was a fish geek before i was a tiki geek.)
