Thanks for sharing and sorry to hear about your loss. The storm is passing through and hopefully temporary
Thank you. And I couldn't agree more. R2R is a community that is a rare find these days in the fog of the web. Very fortunate to have found it.Hey Rich, my support for you in these difficult times.
Thank you for sharing.
Reefing is, also for me, a way to escape and ventilate from the daily routine.
It feels good to be part of this community where nobody expects anything from you a d is there just to help.
I'll pray for the best for your future.
Thanks again. Not sure how I'm gonna go about the sump details yet.Awesome glad the donation is going to get you what you wanted to move the reef to next stage. If your going to use mud in your sump give a shout I overordered for mine so got a gallon and a half extra.
So do u feel like vibrant is a viable option?looks more like green hair algae with hint of dinos
Thanks, I was pretty bummed to find him in the propeller. Cant fix stupid.Sorry to hear about the bumps in the road, made me sad to read about your Blenny Things will get better soon I’m sure
I have a 14 year old Lab/Rotty mix. She has good days amd bad days but I certainly know how hard those unexpected Vet bills can hit. Its never easy losing a family member. Sorry you lost him. You’ll know when youre ready for another pup.So.. I dont typically get personal on here.. but I need a vent..
10 months ago I lost my only "child", Diesel. Got him at 9 weeks, and spent 10 solid years with a 140lbs love of my life.
In February, prior to me "diving into salt", and joining this forum.. i was hit by the disaster bus, or he was... He woke up sick on a Friday, and had to be put down a week later(after $5k spent in 6 days and a hospital stay)
Basically I wasnt prepared, and to this day still not ready to try another pooch. So I hit up a buddy who was into reef keeping years ago, and luckily, I landed a deal on the 55g that's at the start of my story thread here.
It's been a rough year., and as some of u may know, I have been working as an electronic technician for a space systems program that specializes in unique life support systems, heating and cooling, and air systems for the spacesuit, and both NASA and government projects for a few years.
I recently got laid off, and havent really been vocal about it. Which is also why the spending on the tank has come to a halt. Screeching. Also why my old 55g was broken down and put into storage. It was being used as a prophylactic QT treatment for any new additions.
Rodi, ato, and overall sump plans have been delayed. I have a line on a few local companies, but no status change as of yet.
Felt like I needed to get it off my chest and share my frustration with the condition my tank is in due to lack of free finances to splurge with.
This thread is my last 9+ months of reefing. As a 1st timer. Enough cant be said for this forum being vital in its success to this point. Just wanted to share my story of how I first got my toes salty, and say thanks for being a place I felt safe to let it out on.
I've got the tank to help me cope with the emptiness in the house.I have a 14 year old Lab/Rotty mix. She has good days amd bad days but I certainly know how hard those unexpected Vet bills can hit. Its never easy losing a family member. Sorry you lost him. You’ll know when youre ready for another pup.
We’re here for you brother.
