Like I said a few days ago, we never really finish spending money on our fish & their tanks. Even when we think our tanks are finished. We either decide to change how our existing tank looks, or if we're lucky we get to start fresh with a new larger tank.
It's a lot like any other addiction that way, as time goes on we all want more or larger tanks.
But I wouldn't want to change hobbies. Even after more than 7 years I'm still like a little kid when I go the FS to check out any new fish they have in stock.

Tanks, stands, filters & lights have set me back around $1600 Australian. Then food, fish and plants I wouldn't be able to guess how much I have spent and until recently I always got spring water to put in my tanks

I actually keep detailed records of my purchases and expenses as well as feeding records and params and observations so I can try to catch any trends that I want to prevent early on. So far I'm nearing the $700 mark.
