    Hey all, I guess I havent been around for a while, missed you all. Circumstances have changed and I just hadnt been able to get in front of a PC and also spend the time I need to in order to maintain my tank the way it really deserves.

    I have sold my 4ft setup to Charlne (screen name on MASA), he has recently hooked up on MASA as per my advice as he has never had a slice of heaven in his home and is about to enjoy the pleasure with all of you - what better place to recieve a wealth of info than from awesome people as I have met here. I am hoping that the friendships you all showed me and passion to my success in reefing, you will help my good friend Charl on his venture in learning about this massive world in reefing.

    I am sending this message as a farewell to keeping a reef tank for now, I may well get another some time but not in the foreseeable future unfortunately. I am sure I will still pop onto MASA from time to time and say hi to my good mates and fellow reefers (although I technically wont have a tank, my heart is still there). I have had some ups and downs and even at 2am difficulties, there has always been a friendly person on the other side of another PC guiding me and offering reassurance - I am going to miss that and I have to express my sincere gratitude to each and every one of you who has contributed in even the smallest way in helping me become a successful reefer too. Thank you all...

    P.S. - Dont forget my mate, he has my tank and I would love for your assistance in teaching him well as you all did with me and to see the tank in the future succeeding with pride.

    Cheers all!!! :1:
    Peter

    welcome back Peter, long time no talk...

    Oh. uhm, nope

    Goodbye Peter. Life circumstances do sometimes change, forcing us to adapt or change. One day, perhaps sooner than we anticipate, we will see your name pop up here again. What about a nano... Just checking.

    I havent so much packed up in that I will be helping my mate get set-up and guide him in the direction he needs, so will still be around for a little while...

    Gees Crispin, That was the very first name I used waaay back when I first came to MASA, I forgot about that, thanks for the memories refresher :1:

    You never know hey Riaan, it is why I didnt entirely "give up" per say. My heart is still in it and maybe I will venture into a nano some time, the mini reef has always appealed to me...time will tell.:yeahdude:

    Thanks Chika, for all I know, in just a few short months I may be missing it so much that I get another tank, who knows what the future holds...

    Nice positive attitude there sean, that is that solid reefer attitude that keeps the fire burning and that desire to want to never stop...
