East answer: Because I'm insane.
I just think the moonlights look cool. Sometimes I amaze even myself when it comes to sinking money into my fish tanks. I worry about saving 50 cents at lunch, but I won't hesitate to spend $50 on some moonlights.
Hey now, don't "x" out yourself yet regarding spending more on tanks than yourself. I believe a lot us in the hobby is just like that. It's not really Bad-bad to spend on FW
tanks. It's just my personal preference/interest to spend more on SW
. But if you check out forums all over the internet, you would see moon-lit 50/50 bulbed FW
tanks WITH SKIMMER, sump and all!
There were times that I would rather spend $180 AT ONE VISIT to the LFS
and spend NONE on groceries (as in I would feel very very upset if I bought more than $50 in the grocery store). That's just how people are when they end up in a hobby that they are very interested in.
I accepted the fact that I have a "spending addiction" inside the LFS
so I cut all my credit cards and leave my wallet in the car when I go to the LFS
. (I caught on pretty fast!). I was a SW
fish buying addict!
