    My Marine Fish Keeping Days are Over

    Well it had to come one day ....and now it as

    The Tank let go of its water soaking the carpet and the surrounding area....The tank is now 11 years old and it looks like one or maybe two of the silicon seals have perished and been leaking into the cabinet frame work without me realising it, which put some strain on it resulting it giving way under the weight of it.
    I have tried to save all of the corals and fish in large containers without any luck ....the fish are all ok as they went in the sump...but unfortunately i have lost all of my corals including my prized SPS.
    I used to have four Marine tanks on the go, but as time as gone on my Mrs as asked me to do away with them as we redecorated the rooms which they were in and as a fool i agreed with her, ending with just the big one in the back room.
    If i had kept one of the others running i would not be in this position and all would of been ok

    Anyway the time as come and the tank as now been removed from the room and it looks like the Mrs as claimed that room as well.
    As the saying goes....you should never put all your eggs in one basket when it comes to keeping marine fish, as i well know.

    I will be still around as i have a nice size pond outside full of Koi fish which the Mrs will never get that removed

    I walked pass the tank this morning which is now in the back garden to see about getting it tipped as the Mrs was moaning about it being out there.
