    I know the feeling carlos, but trust me... If you sell, it will most certainly create a gap in your hobby/free time that will have to be filled with something else in order to maintain a healthy lifestyle schedule, & that will most likely hold you back just as much...
    And like a couple of guys that i know of, after selling, they missed the hobby so much, they decided to start all over again... (Losing a LOT of money in the process)
    Just think it through carefully carlos, no quick decisions!

    Not to be a downer but comparing to other system sales and going through one myself, I don't think you'll get half what you want for the tank (price wise) hold off for a while, whatever the reason is it'll be better for your hobby and bank balance if you just keep the tank and work on it.

    Dude, I hear you, just keep things simple for now, fish and zoas and then there is no real maintenance needed, use SA products :)

    Wow dude, that is an epic system and still so new. If you really have to, why not rather shut it down for a while?

    If you bucket transfer your fish, then I can look after them for you. My holding tank is empty and the other 220L system is empty.

    You can keep them in there for 6 weeks. Keep inverts and corals in your tank.

    I'm back Friday afternoon. Anyway if you start the bucket method tonight, then next week Wednesday the fish could be moved over to the holding tanks.

    Treating WS with the bucket method is a schlep, but it is the only sure method. If you do not have the equipment, I can organize with my brother so you can pick up what's needed.

    Dude this sounds like a good plan of action - do what Riaan says and take it slow

    Agree with Express Reef.

    Let the tank run its course and get rid of the white spot for good before adding any fish in.

    If all else fails find a new GF that wont give you uphill :lol:

    I had the same issue when i started my tank, got white spot and it just wouldn't go away. Only thing that worked was QT'ing my fish in hypo and leaving my Display empty for 2 months for the ich to die off and never return.

    I know the feeling all to well I let my tank run fish less for almost a year after i lost my queen angels,regal angels,triggers,butterflies etc....I was really down and out about it but the tank has bounced back now and I'm just taking it alot slower now and first quarantine any new inhabitants.

    So go with express reefs suggestion keep your tank fishless for a few months minimum and then start adding only pre quarantined fish and you should be fine,in the mean time let your corals flourish and maybe add some aminos and food now and then to keep em going....
