I think the main thing everyone is getting at is that not all fish / coral are for all people.
Some fish are reef safe, some aren't. Some fish are predatory, some are peaceful. Some fish thrive in large tanks and some are okay in smaller footprints. Some fish are cheap, and some fish compare to a nice car in price.
There seems to be ways for almost anyone interested in the hobby to have an awesome experience and a beautiful tank, but not without limitations.
If we choose to research and provide the right environment, chances for success go up, and we spend more time than money on our hobby, and have more enjoyment than setbacks.
