Odysseys are about the cheapest t5ho lights you can get your hands on. They have a reputation for catching fire.

Salts definitely more expensive which is partly why I haven't gotten into that part of the hobby. I'd be way more upset if my $400 fish died instead of my $5 fish 😳 my main reason for liking fresh more is I like the look of a planted tank way more than any reef tank I've seen.

I agree Hulk, they are very expensive, the reason I gave up was the way they were caught and the shorter life they had in the tank......

Thankfully, they are moving away from using cyanide to catch fish nowadays.

Small nets are now primarily used. Many of the larger companies are going to the poor fishing villages and teaching them different ways of catching fish along with the equipment to do so.

They are also teaching them to aquaculture corals and supply them with frags to grow out in the ocean.

With both of these in mind those companies are buying the grown out corals and more humanely caught fish giving the villages a more sustainable income.
