PostSubject: Aquarium maintenance support   Thu May 11, 2017 4:05 pm

I'm a longtime aquarist and a member of Cichlid-Forum.com, but new to the CVAS. I wanted to ask if anyone is aware of any kind of support group in the central Virginia (i.e. greater Lynchburg) area that helps provide routine maintenance of aquariums when someone is away for an extended period of time. I'm thinking more in terms of an "I'll help you out in return for you helping me out" arrangement, and I'm perfectly willing to reciprocate with others in the same situation, although it could also be someone working on a paid basis. I've relied on friends and family of friends in the past, although none really have any experience with aquariums and I don't know anyone locally who does.

I know this is a sensitive topic because it involves allowing someone to enter your home while you aren't there, but I just thought I'd ask. If you are local and have heard of anything like this or know of anyone in particular, please post a reply, and we can then message in private if you like in order to avoid posting any details on a public forum. Thanks.

I think that would be a really cool idea. I did see a post of craigslist from a guy that said he had his own company servicing tanks(I don't know how legitimate it would be). I would just try joining a local club and make some friends in it who you could ask to take care of your tank Smile

Yup, nothing beats a local club for fish-sitting help, emergency supplies, tank moving, filter seeding schmutz, etc.
