breaking down tank, how should I do this?

Ok, I have had my tank going for about 4 years now and I am going to college soon and nobody will be able to take care of my tank. I will just start taking down the tank for good. Only my clam and some other small corals I can move to my brothers tank but everything else like all the rock and coral thats left i dont know what to do with. I have mostly kenya and pink plsing xenia coral which is cheap and grows fast, and a little bit of starburst/green zooanthid polyp coral. I have 1 Clown Fish in my tank and he is about 4 years old and my brother has a clown fish in his tank that around that age and I know you cant put them together or they fight. Is there any procedure that I can take, taking down my tank without disaster.

Just ask you local LFS if he`ll buy it from you. You wont get much but at least tankmates will have a good home to go to.


You can view many of my fish and corals in my photo albums in my profile.
