I know what you mean greenmaster, I get that question all the time, I just tell people that if your in the hobby you will get it. It is pointless to make a counterpoint, anyone that thinks keeping fish is dumb is never going to understand why hobbyist shell out the big bucks.

I just find out their hobby... there are not very many "cheep" hobbies. And explain to them why mine is better and makes more sense. (I only do that if they are harping on fishkeeping)

Lol, I feel you guys on that one. My friends that give me hard times are cheap skates, they won't spend a dime on anything not necessary and they make good money. So it is kind of hard to deal with them, they talk about how much money I am wasting. To me, it is well worth it. It occupies my time, it is an extremely rewarding process and it makes you think sometimes. I like the intellectual aspect of it almost as much as the tanks themselves, there is always more to learn.

Exactly... Like my mom wanted to buy me a fish that I wouldn't buy myself... so I thought about a fish that was out of my price range and that's what is showing up tomorrow.

What was that fish? My parents think i'm way too sucked into fish, but frankly, i keep a better/ healthier tank using the same tank my dad used. He used to keep fish too, but they all died.
