Craigslist has helped 2 of my friends and myself set up saltwater tanks on a tight budget. I am now helping someone else get started with his first tank. I am spreading the addiction.

Yup -- craigslist is awesom (and somewhat sad)... I also just bought over 100lb's of LR in an established tank for $150. Also bought a 6month old $600 light for $125

Was sad though cause guy had to sell because he had aquarium "illegally" in an apartment on the 2nd floor and was being fined daily

actually no, but if I can get an ID i think i have a group of majano's. I also got plenty of sponges, tunicates, snails, crabs, baby brittles, asternias, its like an aquatic grab bag.

each one of these anemones with the white ball tips are about 1/2" across. They have an obvious foot and mouth (im not a photographer)
