    It should have being the best weekend because we moved into our own house over the weekend.....but I lost my Flame,Yellow belly regal,Spotted wrasse and one anthia.My purple tang has a bacterial infection over his eyes now,and I cant do anything because my filtration system was down for a long time and I am dosing stability to help with the bacterial growth in the sump.
    I have thoughts of giving up,but on the other hand I must just lose my eyes and pull this one through.

    Sorry to hear this. Once you in this hobby it is difficult to get out. It's addictive.

    Thanks for all the replies guys,it just shows me there are still many people out there that cares....If I should ever move again I would rather ask someone to host my stock till everything is setup and on the go.
    This is how we learn out of our own mistakes.
