Well, I sure picked the wrong year to take down my tanks. I took down the last tank in January before going to Hawaii for a month and planned to sell off the equipment when I got back. So far, due to covid, I haven't done much but clean and box everything. The empty 92 Gallon tank still sits in my office, mocking me. Due to COVID we've delayed our plans to move and it sure would have been nice to have my tanks through the lockdown period.

Oh well, you can never know perfectly what the future holds. I have no plans to restart the tanks, the sad part is that can't even enjoy other people's or go diving right now.

Enjoy your tanks folks!

We planned to sell our Berkeley house and move in 2020 but COVID derailed that. I have now changed jobs and we are probably staying in the bay area for a couple more years. If I had not taken down my tanks I would wish they were still running but I am not putting a tank back up having taken them down. Hawaii is still our plan, just a little delayed.
