    Confession: I've really lost enthusiasm for the tank over the last few months, nothing in particular, although the Aiptasia and this bloody Cyano/Algae is getting on my ****.

    Apology: Sorry for not taking much time in the forum and not posting much..............(see above).

    I'm going to have to buy a File fish or more Peps or more Nudis (or all three) to get rid of the Aips, the CyAno/Algae I'm going to leave to burn it's self out (I hope).

    I have had thoughts of jacking it in, but I know I will regret it.

    Been in a similar place mate and thought about binning it all a couple of weeks ago. Got my arse into gear and tidied it all up, binned all affected SPS which was rather demoralising but seeing the benefits now.

    Not on here too much as so darned busy with my new direction in work and Uni projects. Often pop on for a look but little or no posting which is a poor show :(

    Know how you feel dude, I was so annoyed with not being able to keep coral alive, it was really getting me down.

    You just need a solution to the problem, a file fish or some pepps should do it. :)

    PS - Don't give up, you would seriously miss it.

    Get a grip Roger lol. You know you love the hobby and your tank. Maybe take a break from being a mod and then that wont be playing on your mind and just put a little time into your tank. As said its nowt that a couple of peps cant sort but im not to sure about the file fish as the last one i had to get rid of for eating lps and sps

    Chin up, Dave

    Knowing that I would miss the hobby way too much stops me from ever wanting to jack it in.

    One of the reasons I moved from trops to marine was because of the challenge. If it was easy to do you probably wouldn't have ever wanted to do it.
