Have you been bitten by the Saltwater Bug?

Eventually I think SW gets the best of us.... Or does it?

The only thing that might distract me from my pond is that I might set up a 30 gal for my plecos over the winter. Salt is too expensive, and I don't like the idea of harvesting fish and rocks from the ocean.

I started SW, and was bitten by the FW bug, several years later, but the itch for FW faded quickly. If it weren't for big aggressive cichlids, I wouldn't have a FW tanks set up. FWIW, my wife prefers FW Biotope aquariums.

Moved to The Lounge so as to not get overshadowed by the current photo contest polls.

I didn't vote in the poll.

The salty side of things is Mighty Tempting, but I choose not too, for a variety of reasons. I have had salt in the past (waaaay back).

I won't rule it out in the future, but for now my hands are full with my tanks and ponds, and my wallet is empty!
