I typically try to "break-even" at tax time and go with the closest refund to $0 I can. This year I'm getting back $750. Who knew Student Loan interest was that big of a write-off!
Anyway, I have two options:
Put the money into paying off some student loan debt which would allow me to pay it off exactly (1) month earlier
Purchase an Ecotech Radion LED
I've looked quite a bit into the LED
's and while this is expensive, a lot of people seem to think they are great and it would be IMO
a nice jump up from my 24" 4-bulb AquaticLife T5 fixture. (Also DIY LED
's seems like something I'd rather not do at this time - even as a better alternative.)
I've been nudged away from purchasing a Reef controller at this time, my Koralia 750's are providing fantastic flow, so no need to upgrade to the MP40's, Skimmer is already accounted for, so an LED
upgrade seems like the next step.
I'm guessing I could sell my T5's for some money back. As far as livestock, I've got (5) fish in my 54 gallon and I'm happy with that. I'm just about maxed out for corals, though I am looking at expanding a bit. I have (5) SPS
now but would like to house more. So all-in-all I have (2) questions?
Am I being ignorant and I should just leave well enough alone?
Is anyone else using Tax refund to purchase Aquaria related stuff?
