Maybe you will slow down sooner or later to let your stock grow out some.. Its not like you don't have room for huge coral colonies to grow from your frags.. :P
Just think, next thing you know you'll be asking about how to set up your propogation system :P

unfortunately it will only slow down when you slow down i'd say 20-30 years at least..

so $500 x52 = $26,000

$26,000 x30 = $780,000..

im sorry LOL

I'm starting to think this hobby is like what they say about boat owners. Their 2 best days are when they buy the boat and when they sell it .

It's like this: you start with an empty tank and then spend thousands so you can view fish that cost hundreds, and when ich hits, you're left with a an empty tank! All things come full circle.

$500/week!! Well, I certainly don't spend that of course, my tank is about 1/10th of yours. Soon to be about 1/5th with my 120 gal.

Although given that, I don't spend $50/week either. Even if I include water, electric bill upper, etc., I'm looking at maybe $20/week. That would be pure maintenance - no stocking.

Funny you mentioned the propagation tank. I am building a 25X12 glass house for my wife for palm trees and things. After talking with ellisz we are talking about installing 2-10'X3' prop tanks in it.

When will it slow down you ask!? OMG! I can't believe you spoke of slowing down AND a prop tank in the same post! LOL! Yeah, you're an addict alright! How much money you think the 10'x3' prop tanks are going to cost you?! By the time you add a skimmer, a sump, rock, killer pumps, the Ca reactor, 10 mh fixtures (may as well make the prop tanks 2' wide) ...

It doesn't end!

No lights. Filtered natural sunlight. Just pumps and skimmer etc. Just looking into it.
