A reef tank is quite a commitment so taking down one's reef is quite a big decision, practically a lifestyle decision. It sounds like you're coping with change which isn't a bad thing. You can come and go from the hobby with ease and you shouldn't feel responsible to people more than your immediate family so it seems like you're doing what your heart desires, which is good.

If it makes you feel any better, I left the aquarium hobby entirely around 2009, and it was actually a relief to look after some other things in my life for a period. The hiatus lasted about 6 years, and when I got back into the hobby I had matured in my outlook on time and money put in vs reward. I spend less money on the hobby, make fewer changes, and have healthier livestock and more free time as a result. It took the break to make that change.

Whether you get back into it or not, feel good about the change you've made and how things will be going forward. Good luck!

I don't want to, but SHOULD take a break.

Posted my livestock up for reholming on the local groups, had to take a time out for kid time on the weekend but really it was just stressing me out to much all the vultures messaging me<sorry if any of you are here>. Just before seeing this post i had the brainwave of yeah if all/most of my rock goes and that leaves me with just some coral/small rocks i got about 5 little tanks i can chose to throw that in so i am not OUT of the game untill i can restart. guess i should go mix up some water for that lol.

but yeah.. its all the little things i don't want to miss.
