    Default After Crash Now what?

    After my last crash of my nano with everything dying. I don’t have much interest in reefing. This is the first time I feel like I want to quit the hobby after 4 years. Haven’t paid attention to my fish just installed my Autofeeder this past week and haven’t even sat down to look at the tank. How do you get over this slump?

    Walk into your favorite coral store for inspiration

    I'm mostly sps but if you decide to reboot I'll cut you some of what I have to help restock.

    It happened to me last month, and I ended up giving away whatever I had left to someone is new to start out and save their money. I went around youtube and local stores to check out fish and corals and got the excitement again, so I have been cleaning my nano setup and redoing the new scaperocks now. It's just like setting up a new tank.

    hang out with someone on the forum near you and check out their tank over a few beers. Everyone goes through the crash and burn so we all feel for ya.

    How do you reboot? Do you sell everything all your livestock and restart? What process the process like?

    Sometimes this is the best time to set up the big tank. When you don't care too much. Why? Because you'll be much more patient and less impulsive on purchases. Plan your goals. Go simple. Take your time. you'll be happier

    One way is hanging out with a reefing buddy. My buddy I met on here was not paying attention to his tank and after a few days of hanging out with him I got him back into reefing.

    Depends on what caused the crash to me. What happened exactly?
