No, nobody seem to randomly brings that up.... don't want to think about all the $$$ spent. Why, are you thinking about getting into sps? Or do you already have sps? At a certain point the sps gets so big that people frag it and make some money back.

I just now added up my tanks equipment only(not counting fish, coral, inverts, food, supplements, saltmix, electricity etc etc) and came up with over $6000. Wish I didn't just do that But for people reading this and thinking about getting into it.... you can do it for much cheaper. I just tend to buy the latest/greatest name brand stuff. Lumenarc, Neptune Apex, Vortech, Tunze, SWC Cone skimmer w/Askoll pump etc etc I could have saved a lot by not going that route.

No I am not thinking about getting into sps corals. I just saw so many different sps corals in his tank and I know how much they can cost. There are allot of reefers out there on a budget that I thought we would get a reallty check if you know what I mean.

You should try sps out, its very fun and much more challenging. The cool thing is a lot of those really nice SPS tanks were grown out from small aquacultured frags. The average price of those small frags is usually $20-$60 and start out at around 1" in size. Thats my goal too, I love sps, especially Acropora. I picked up 4-new pieces today from Steve Tyree/ReefFarmers Coral Farmer Market show this morning. I will post them on my build thread for those who are interested.
