    Well, unfortunately it has come down to me not being able to keep my tank up and running. So, it's gotta go for the greater good. Just as an FYI this is in our club section, and I will not be shipping anything. Just get a hold of me if you're interested in anything, either through here, facebook, on the phone, whatever. Either the complete system or I will part it out, the latter of which will be most likely. Check out my tank page for everything, and let me know if you want anything more specific as to the details of the equipment, livestock, or corals.
    I do still plan on being part of the hobby, and will still continue to try to be a part of this board. I don't consider this a retirement from the hobby, just a temporary leave of absence, due to the chronic illnesses and the unemployment that has come along with it. I just have to step away for a while due to economic reasons, but I will be back later on own the road when I get back on my feet again.
    :cry:

    Man sorry to see you have to get rid of the tank. You put so much work into it. Wife's out of work so I cant afford to buy anything at the moment.

    that really really sucks,is it possible to keep your tank and switch to freshwater for awhile? it would dramatically cut down your electric bills and maintenance,and obviously when things (if) things turn around you'll have the tank? i've been wanting to get out of my reef for sometime,and for similiar reasons. but i live in the absolute middle of nowhere and would pretty much have to throw away rock, corals etc...

    Jason,
    Number One....not having a tank doesn't give one the right not to log onto 3Reef. I expect to see you here from time to time. That's an order. ;D

    Number Two....have you considered just mothballing things for a bit. Most people I know who have quit sell their equipment for pennies on the dollar and then 5 years later buy it all again for full price. It's just something to consider.
