    I can understand the loss of passion for the hobby but you guys were so hardcore for such a long time. I have lurked in your posts and soaked up your knowledge for over 2 years hear and it bugs me to no end that you are feeling this way. I know you don't know me but if there is anything I can do to help out, let me know. I don't have much in the way of coral but I would be glad to box up a few tiny frags to send your way when you are ready. I've got a piece of $500 efflo with your name on it =)

    oh no thank you guys!!! Honestly life has just gotten in the way is all! This weekend Curt took me to a couple LFS in the area (one where I used to work) to light the spark back into my heart! It did get my interests back up!!!! In fact the owner of teh LFS where I was working is pushing for me to start to pick up some hours again on the weekend in the store, which i am considering (for the discount of course). Like I said, we are discussing finally putting up our 150g tank and actually took steps and cured a bunch of rock!

    I REALLY appreciate all the encouragement. You know how life is! Today i am just really down........not only the eye thing but was involved in a wreck yesterday morning driving into work and am achey and sore. To show how my luck goes.......come to find out the other driver is uninsured! She hit me trying to sneak in to get coffee at the local starbucks!

    Hang in there Mel, totally understandable with your other concerns why you have lost interest in the hobby.

    Very sorry to hear of the accident. Hopefully your luck will turn the other way and everything good will fall into your lap.
