I'm very, very sorry to hear this, Kolewolf. I hope that everything is okay with your family.

All my tanks are small and have tiny fish in them, so I can't take any of your gorgeous big ones. But I just wanted to say that I'm sorry you're getting out of the hobby and I hope that it's temporary.

Thanks everyone but it is due to a promotion at work and a family member needing to move in with us. I have been working cray hours and have not been able to keep up with or enjoy the tanks the way I should. I lost my beloved Tigrinus 2 days ago and that was the last straw.

This is a serious loss for the local aquarist community and for BCA. I hope we'll see you back at some point, and all the best with your career and your family.

I'm glad I got to see your tank in time! :)

I feel your pain. It is tough to have a family, a career and a time consuming hobby all balanced.
I had to downsize my MTS a while back and give up some fish that I really liked.
Luckily when when additional family moved in and my career took me out of town for months, the family stepped in to help care for the fish and did a great job.
You made the right choice for sure, I would have given all my fish up for the family had they been unable to care for the fish.
Hope to see you again on line. You put out some great posts.

i agree. you can always come back when you're ready. i've been a salty ever since and planning to go back someday when i'm ready. for now, i'll concentrate on the planted tank.

congrats kole on you promotion!!!

I am really sorry to hear that you are stepping down from the hobby.

Hopefully you can get back into it in the near future. I know how hard it is...
