    Until this morning I had a bueatiful coral reef in my sitting room,coming home from work this evening I found a sewer stinking like hell with everything dead inside.The stupid idiot living next door to me fumigated his house and garden and because we left our windows open in our house the poison was carried over by the wind and it wiped out my tank currently breaking down my tank:(

    i really hope you do another build - the fact that you had a successful reef shows you KNOW what you are doing.
    and that means you NEED to stay in the hobby.

    OMG that is HORRENDOUS to say the least. What can anybody say apart from the ashes left a new even better tank grow. Good luck with the rebuild, I wish you well with it.

    The Bible says to love thy neighbor. I take it that doesn't apply here.

    I’m truly sorry for your loss


    I fail to see however that the neighbor is at fault. This just looks like an unfortunate accident

    I'm sorry for your loss >.< that's nuts. If he's fumigating the whole neighborhood I would see what legal steps you can take.

    I once had a neighbor come over and ask me did I spray bug spray around my house because his tomato plants were dead.

    I was like "Sorry but no. I guess you just suck at gardening!" "But I grew plenty so your more than welcome to help yourself!"
