Creative Aquascape Union Defection

Does anyone know why certain members of CAU are withdrawing from the group? And so publicly no less.

Heres a quote from the CAU website:

Quote:
After 6 years, top 10 in ADA competitions, Best of Shows in AGA competitions, and many other worldwide awards as well as countless memories that we will forever cherish, we today announce our plan to withdraw from CAU. The decision is entirely amicable. We want to have a well-earned break and look at new ventures.
Over the years, CAU has become much more than just a team to us. CAU is a family. We would like to thank our fans who have been with us through this amazing journey and become part of our family too.

"The decision is entirely amicable. We want to have a well-earned break and look at new ventures."

Looks to me as if they're just going to go their own ways, probably to take care of their families etc. as in their latest post here:

I wouldn't be surprised if they also started to enter their own work on an individual basis rather than as a team... they're all very talented.

But if it were so "Amicable" why did they take down all their tank pictures and remove all their articles from the "study room?" That does not seem like a very amicable gesture to me...but maybe I'm wrong.

Maybe asking them would resolve the question.

Many to protect and "intellectual property" that may feel is on that site. On most sites once your acct. is deleted you can't rejoin and delete prior posts.
