What to do with tank

So I'm joining the army and going to be leaving for basic in March. After basic and AIT I'll be at my duty station. I am married so my wife will be coming. That said I have a 6 foot 180 gallon tank. Is this something I should just sell and get smaller tank if I can?

A break from the hobby is in order until such time as you are settled in @ a permanent base. Then you can determine if you want to stage a comeback.
Thanks for your service Joe.

Yes you’ll have to take a break. My son had a tank going before he went off to basic and tech school. My wife and I were building our forever home so he had to take the tank down. Between breaking down my75and moving I couldn’t take care of his tank too.
I did 4years active duty and my wife did 10 years active and is about hit twenty with her reserve time and we’ve been able to have tank in base housing and when we finally settled down.
