Well everyone, the tank is gone. I sold the livestock today, and I am in the process of tearing it down. It's funny how long it took me to do.. Two years.. And it can be tore down in a half a day. I hope that this huge thread helps someone now that its over, and that they take some of the mistakes I have had, and learn from them.
I'd like to thank anyone who has taken the time to post on my thread, everything was helpful. You've all helped me through some tough times with the tank, and now that its over, I can realize the true magnitude of it. I have learned so much in such little time with all of you. If anyone needs my help, I will try my best to reciprocate the kindness you have shown to me.
As for my future endeavors with aquariums... You all know I wouldn't be able to stay out of the hobby! I'm going to do a freshwater build. I think I'll have a blue lobster again. Idk what else, but I'll make a thread when I'm ready. For now I'll be relaxing and reading about how all of you have to do water changes
Thanks again everyone.
