Over the course of 3 years.

But given the tank size and racks etc... we had to reno a room for it and that is included in the spending cost.

I used an 800 gallon L-shaped glass tank as a center piece in the reception area of our new clinic.

Built the whole reception area around it.

Had to gut the place anyways but the extra cost to make accommodations for the tank would be over 5k easy, not even accounting for the cost of the tank or equipment.

But how often do you get to build an aquarium big enough to swim in???

Worth every penny

Close to $2000 on 7 tanks at a guess. Maybe more. I try and get things second hand or cheap.

Everything is fairly cheap but it adds up so fast.

I cant Imagine there ever being a such a thing as too much money invested. I've seen tanks w/ the pricetag of luxury vehicles. And somehow in my mind I try to conjure up what "My $50k tank" would look like...

currently I'm about a grand in. But I've been very frugal, And Im learning and enjoying myself as if I've spent 10 times that.
