    Amazing tank. I read the thread in the last 2 hours after finding it. I have seen a few amazing builds with incredible photos but I have to say yours is the best so far. I hope you are feeling better. I would think the best therapy would be to take time off work and just enjoy such an amazing tank.

    Stunning pics! I love the Angel. I have to tell you, I am planning an upgrade from my 40 cube to a custom Reef Savvy 90. I have to wait about 6 months to a year to get my dream tank. Every time I see your pics I am so jealous that I'm probably a year away from starting a tank that I hope achieves even just a small amount of your success. Amazing job. Please keep the pics coming.

    LOVE the new additions Mick:)

    How long will you be able to keep the angel before it will need a bigger tank?

    Hi Lilly I hope you are well,

    Hi and sadly yes
    The tank is gone, all of it I'm tankless
    Thank you all for checking in on the thread,showing interest and care
    I didn't deserve the tank I was walking a fine line due to my care free attitude
    So thought it only fair to call it a day




    I am having the summer off reef keeping.
    A new tank has already been paid for but I will not get it delivered until my passion returns

    Thank you all, your a lovely bunch of friends

    Mick, I am sorry to hear (for purely selfish reason of course...I DO so enjoy your tank), you are taking a break. Please take good care of yourself as this is the most important thing....as your health gets better My hope is that you will once again pursue keeping some tank friends....God speed my friend:)

    Well, I will definitely miss your reef, my friend. However, I'll be looking forward to the next set up. You're an amazing reefer, and a wonderful member of our community!
