its official, we accepted an offer... we now have about 4 weeks to decide on a new home and then 30 days for all the paperwork garbage. have to be out by the end of june. i have a huge knot in my stomach, i hope we made the right decision.

uuggh all that work i just put into it makes me feel kind of indifferent, i guess i was thinking it wouldnt sell even though the motive was to sell it all along.

don oh don oh don, its just so much friggen work. its only been re-set for a couple months and having to tear it down again is like a slap in the face. I'm wondering if i can move it with the substrate still in it, other wise ill have to buy new sand, as i only have 1 full bag left, and probably another bag of dirt... maybe i can try skimming the sand layer off and saving it since they probably havent really mixed that much yet....

just not looking forward to all the work and time ill have to invest again on top of moving all our other stuff. especially when i have new music toys to twiddle with and 400 page manuals to read.

Had the thought seeing all the posted retro deco going on that something was in the works.

Congrats on the sale!

Yes, you would be right on that. I'm a lover, not a fighter anyways. Until the time of anarchy, at least.

Well, 'tis just ONE more set up though....then, you should have to worry about moving it for a LONG time. The nice things about anubias tanks is that they allow for ample reading time as well, you know?

Yes, I'm sure that you should. If you need "temporary housing" for that anubias, I have plenty of space to help you bro! PLENTY!!!!

i dunno man, your tank looks pretty full.... with those 2000 different species of buce you have..

much to my wife's dismay, the tank will probably be my priority since i have all those rainbows and emerald eyes i just got a month or two ago and i lost a buttload of anubias while the tank was tore down.

How did I get involved in a cage fight? I prefer grappling

Tearing it down again?!?! You, sir, are a glutton for punishment.

Good luck with the move. And I really hope you put the tank back up.

nope, everything went sour with the ones we were looking at. due to some non performance on the part of our realtor, we lost 1000 bucks... inspection turned up things that if our realtor did her job, we wouldve known about before inspection and would have not gone as far as paying for an inspection, she also had our lender push our appraisal through before the inspection......

so we decided to (most likely)build again. which means no tank for me for awhile.
