Nice question for all you saltys.

I hope this thread goes smoothly, and doesn't discourage anyone from getting saltwater, but my question is. are ya ready?

How many BRAND NEW cars do you thing you could have had that are fully paid off if you didn't have a saltwater fish tank? I would say probably 1-2 for me.

None. I've spent about $250 on my tank. With livestock I doubt it'll be more than $350. Even when you count water changes, etc. it won't even come close. Just being honest.
