About 15 years ago I had a nice 55gal setup. It was the source of so much enjoyment, and every time I go to an aquarium or even the LFS I feel a longing to get back into the hobby.
The one major thing holding me back is that I travel frequently, sometimes up to ten days out of the country. I really don't have anyone I feel I an fully rely on to monitor or take care of the tank while I am gone.
I would like to start a new tank, but only if I can be confident all the hard work won't be destroyed while I am away.
Does anyone have any suggestions? I have not purchased anything yet, so I can be completely flexible at this point if say a micro were a better idea or if bigger is better. I can compromise on quantity or type of fish and rock and invertebrates.
I also was just looking at a magazine in the LFS that talked about setting up some simple monitoring system like a fail-safe on the temp and a reserve tank for top-offs.
So, to all my new best friends and experts....what do you think?
