    I'm beginning to think it might be applicable to myself, maybe take a break for a year or 2. It is not that great when the motivation starts lacking a bit.

    I think boredom could creep into this as well. I am sure it can leed to silly purchases.

    He is in good hands! Was thinking a year or 2 break to save up some cash, then BAM, set up a 1500 liter tank. Pity I got a Margined Coralfish and YT just yesterday.

    I did exactly that and it turned out for the better. Not so obsessed with the tank anymore since we started up again. And much easier the 2nd time around
