Just wondering how people are doing since the virus, are you spending more time with your tank, doing upgrades? How are things at home, are you having money issues like lots of people who are out of work, are you able to keep your tank going? It is definitely hard times but I for one look forward to better times, It may be a hard hill to climb but we have to get through this and together makes it easier a little. Share your thoughts!!:unsure:

I am lucky that my job allows me to stay home and work. But even though in theory I have a lot of time to play with my tank, it is still neglected. I guess I am ready quit? After all my tank is 18 years old. And with this pandemic, I cannot even sell it as a whole or as pieces. But all in all still here surviving....

Man I wish I still have mine. 18 years is a long time. That's dedication haha. As far as this pandemic. I'm fortunate to have a business that is deemed essential and doing our best to give back to the community that are less fortunate then our situation. During this whole thing business nearly tripled so for myself and my partner we feel it is the right thing to do and donate to our local food banks. Next year we have a goal on providing 1 million meals. It's a huge goal but we feel it's the best way to help out during this time.

Man.... I have to catch up to Scooterman and Krish's post numbers..... So I jumped right back into the hobby in January of last year.... and we will say that it has been an adventure just putting the tank together. Now I have a 240 up and running and the cost of corals have skyrocketed..... it is insane. People are taking zoa's and putting some crazy name next to it and charging 200 dollars a head... or a torch... that changed a certain color under their lights and they are going to charge me 350 a head just so that when I get it into my tank it turns another color..... Living in Az now and it is definitely the wild wild west.
