I got just over 3000 dollars into my 125 gal tank so far. I have about $1000 dollars in rock. I really should buy it online, but I have to have that instant gratification thing....LOL I have 160 pounds of LR of different origin.

Although I do not have as much in livestock as CBRGuy, I really only have fish and a few Anenomes. I am waiting on the Corals. All the fish I have picked with purchasing corals in mind. I probably have about $300 in livestock. I really should buy them online too....LOL

Stirring up an old post but...

I've kept track of every dime spent on this sucker since march, 2005:

how about $697.22 on a 2.5gal nano reef? And relatively little to show for it
