    I’m extremely sad to be leaving my life behind but it’s a sacrifice I’ll make for kids. They’ll hopefully understand one day...

    Sorry to hear. Did the gassing happen by accident? :(

    Hi Marc,

    It is very sad yes, today all my shrimp tanks also got picked up, I now have nothing fish related anymore in more than probably 10 years
    We are also emigrating and to be honest, it can not happen quickly enough.

    Hi Hendre

    My CO2 was not flowing so I turned it up to max. I assumed there was water in the line that needed to be pushed back. I had to step away from the tank for awhile and forgot! Dumb ass!

    Oh damn that's not good! :(

    Shame that I don't have money, seems like a lovely tank. What are you planning on selling the larger tank for?

    It is nice to see African surnames in the comments to that thread. While working at UCT I was involved with the medical students and it was shocking (but logical in retrospect) that irregardless of race many students had the plan of getting the medical degree and then emigrating, citing that they wouldn't earn enough in SA to pay for their studies. So many people cast this as some racial thing, that Whites are just anti-black and that is why they want to leave, but it is people of all colors and ethnicity that are leaving, and for much the same reasons.

    When Fox news' Tucker Carson made the SA situation news here it was immediately branded as racist by the left here in the USA. There is no appreciation that it is coloreds, Indians, Malays, Bantus, Christians, Muslims, Hindus, Jews, all fed-up and wanting to get out, fearing for their lives and livelihoods.

    I had hopes of coming back to South Africa but it looks like the only way that will happen is as a little box of ashes to be interned in my grand father's burial plot (assuming Maitland Cemetery isn't a squatter camp by then).
