    Well, today I sold the last of my 120 gallon setup. It went dirt cheap, but I needed it to be gone and I know that nobody in Iowa pays much for anything, so at least everything went to a good home.

    Getting things ready to put the house up for sale and heading 1300 miles away to Florida soon, so I guess that means no more GIRS for me.

    I enjoyed sharing the memories and conversations over the years... The group Live Aquaria purchases that I put together, the Fests, the discussions around fish compatibility, etc.

    Maybe I'll do another tank someday, but with housing being really expensive for a lot smaller place, I will have to limit myself to something like a 30 cube in my home office (since I work from home), but that will be years away.

    Take care everyone.

    Good luck!! Just bought a condo in fort Myers and flying home as we speak. There are always deals down in Florida if you want to get back in. I’ll probably be in the same boat as you sooner than later. Housing market is crazy there as well.

    Good luck with the move! I hope you are able to set up a new tank soon. Once bitten, it's hard to stay out! Post some pics here when you do!

    I've been bitten twice now, so who knows, right?
