Joining Marines

Hello everyone, i have had a reef tank and a couple of fish for a very long time now, but im planning on joining the US Marines, and however much i wish i could take the fish with me, i cannot, however, i do not want the fish to prevent me from joining the service, my g/f whom i have dated for over a year has accepted caring for the fish, however, if i happen to obtain residency in the US near a base, she will be moving in with me, this poses another problem with the fish. Because my fish have been with me for so long and have remained healthy along with investments in coral, i am looking for someone who great experience in salt water reef and fish keeping who will take the best care of my fish, i am not willing to send my buddies off to someone who will neglect their health such as a fish store or novice fish keeper. the fish are 1 Striped damsel fish who ive had since a baby, and a scooter blenny who ive also had since it was small, 1 or 2 emerald crabs, i turbo snail, 1 nirite snail, 1 nassarus snail which has grown huge, two hermits. 1 rock of starburst polyps, 2 yellow polyp rocks, 2 leather coral rocks w/ a few baby feather dusters, 2 pulsing xenia corals. i plan to keep the equiptment due to thier ability to remain in storage while maintaining their value. Thank you. i live in the Jersey Village area of Houston Tx near the intersection of Senate and Hwy 290
