How Much Have You Spent?

I think I might be a sick-o. I was just doing my books last night and found out how much of my income is spend on my fish tank hobby over the past year.

How much have you guys spend over all on your tanks? I just want an idea of how sick I really am.

Now I have to spend more $$ on livestock. I only have one fish and a handful of inverts and 2 shrooms.

Let the next round of spending begin!!!!!!1

Since starting my 75 gal main in January and also starting my 30 gal QT I have spent approximately $2500. It really makes me sick when I think about it.

I DIYed my sump/refug... That saved some money. I think over the past year I am hitting about $3000 , so I feel better hearing you guys are spending a bit more than I. I have an 85 gallon...
