First, thanks. My kid wants to join the marines, it scares the hell out of me, but I'm proud as hell of him. Second, for that long I'd probably take the tank down, unless you had someone who had experiance with reefs. I'd be easy to take care of as long as things are 'well', but when something gets out of whack, your tanks gone.

I would take the tank down or give it to your parents and give them this web address. Maybe we could get a sticky just for your parents. Take care of yourself in Iraq. You will be in my thoughts. Maybe this :censor: will be over soon and you will not be there long.

Wow!!! Thanks for all the support guys, There is a country song called Arlington that sums it up pretty well I think, "I'm thankful for those who are thankfull for the things I've done" or in this case the things I am about to do. And just as a side note, my job is on an airfield, which can still get messy, but I really shouldnt see much of the ugly part of war. (As if there was any other type)

I agree, breaking it down would be the easiest.
If I keep it, I will have to move it. I will lose my living accommodations when I go. I just hate to do that, Yesterday was an exciting day for my tank,,,,, First I noticed that one of my blue leg hermits had decided to move into a bigger shell, and I noticed a few small patches of coralline algae starting to grow on my filter tube. Not too big of a deal, but it was a real good indicator to me (a new guy in this hobby) that I am doing it right.
To stop now would be a disappointment. I will talk to the owner of the LFS again, he mentioned once apon a time that he might have room in his basement. He is a pretty good guy I consider him a friend.

Just have to see I guess

Thanks again

Wade

the bases were pretty quiet some mortar fire and idiots taking potshots but thats it. I understand that has cooled off now too. Its the roads that are dangerous. stay alert stay alive.

That is pretty much what I hear Scott, Sounds like I will be going to Anaconda, (Morteritaville)

Any way, I noticed a very tiny (about half the size if your pinkey nail) starfish, looks like a choc-chip starfish. Pretty neat!!! Not sure where this guy came from, musta hitched a ride in with some live rock.

Due to all of this I think I will move them out to NC when I go.,


It will be a pain in the butt, but the tank is doing to well now for me to abandon it.
