When will this hobby slow down?

How long am I going to be required to dump money in this hobby at the current rate? I know I am "stocking" corals etc now. If you would have told me how much I would have spent over the the last month on this money pit I would have laughed at you. Tell me it will slow down soon.

Once you get all the corals and little things you want it will slow down. You could try going a cheaper route with corals by purchasing frags, this is also cool becuase you will be able to watch them grow.

Lol.....maybe you should have reconsidered buying a tank large enough to give scuba lessons in.
