Haha bad thing is now she wants to go with me everytime I buy something! I'm not sure if she just loves the hobby or if she's keeping an eye on me!

I was in a motorcycle accident in September of 2009 I got my payout in February of 2010, my wife said no new bike so I took a vacation and when I got back I ordered a custom tank... $4500 I then started on the construction... somewhere around August my kids started asking me when we were going to get fish... that's when I got MTS I got a 30g FW tank that was already running and set it up. I have been working on my tank and having ups and downs... finally this month I got fish in my tank. I've run out of money from my accident... I had $7,000 set aside for my tank $4,500 for my tank $1,000 for my LEDs then another $700 to replace the ones that broke and $1,000 for my Apex. Plus I have spent at least $500 of my own cash on various things... My wife now wants me to get a Wooper Looper (Axolotl) and she wants either a FW or SW puffer. So I will have 4 tanks when it is all said and done.

For as long as I have been keeping fish, coming up on 25 years, I have no way of knowing how much I have spent.

So far I am up to approx $4000Aud. My tank/cabinet alone cost $3000. Its a 6ftx2ft2ft in a jarrah cabinet. The picture that has only a few things in was from the day I got it. The other is what it is currently which in 2 weeks is going to have more plants added as it's still bare in parts of it
