Most of the hobby has slowed to a stand still as well.

Still got my fish, still help with the big reef tank when I can. Other than that I moved across the US for work.

West Texas is a shithole... but I am just here for work so, can kinda tolerate it. Did some sailing and stuff on the coast, and I get to drive all over the US so its nice to get away every week and travel.

P-man, always good to see ya

You too man...

Where are ya, El Paso?
Not gonna be there for long, eh?
It's easier to tolerate an undesirable location when ya know it's temporary.

I lived in Corpus Christi for a year... loved it.
Corpus is way south though... and tropical/coastal.
Kinda hard to bitch about palm trees and 85° ocean water.

Corpus is where I did 10 days of sailing school, wasnt terrible. Have been all over the state / US and the northwest is still my home.

I am like 80 miles from the SE corner of New Mexico. Nothing but sand, cactus, and pump jacks... Have seen 126deg on my dash, and without vented leather in my truck I would prob have died a few times. Been here just under 2 years, and will prob be here another year and a half.

Get my truck paid off, hire a driver and head back home.

By my calculations i will do 1k miles weekly , plus first day driving from work and my car started to show little problems... never gave me problems for past 4 years ,, now is stealership time hehe

One of my tanks has shallow scratches so ill try to buff em out , plus need 200w heater .. Cant wait to do that since pedro has inch rhombs ,, I so want one !!! For next few months he will have to be happy in 20 gallon untill 75 will be ready...

No matter what happens ill love this hobby , reefs are ok but ill stay with piranhas ... That black rhombs with red eyes on black sand and background ...

I am a piranha fan. Always have been and always will be. Even though I have had like every other fish at one point (a bit of an obvious exaggeration). I have always ran a separate piranha tank. Now I just have 1 tank with my rhom and that is it. Wife would get mad at me if I had another tank running.

Yeah. Rhoms have been hard to find lately but it is probably seasonal. Not that I am very actively looking but still have not seen much around in Canada anyway.

That's really gettin' in and takin' care of business!
And if I'm not mistaken, you're not a spring chicken anymore (like me), workin' through that which was a helluva lot easier 25 years ago!
