Woot!

I guess I didn't necessarily get something FOR my tank as much as I got the tank itself. I got my 75G on sale today along with a 20G long sump all for under 200 bucks. (regularly at least 250 at the store by me) As soon as I can figure out where to put the stand, I'll begin documenting my SW adventure on this site.

I'm quite excited

XD oh yes.. My parents are rather "disappointed".

"I'm not mad son, I'm just disappointed"

-ouch-

Well, I'm trying to do the smart thing and not buy things full price. So far everything I've gotten has been on sale or I've used coupons. But oh well...

I know it's expensive and I know it's more work for SW. (I've done at least two years of research... Still not an expert though.) My dad kept some fish when he was younger and thinks he knows everything about SW even though he's never done it before. Parents are crazy sometimes.

good for you! Keep your parents in the mix. Ask them if they want to adapt a fish or a coral. Above all don't move out. You will need someone to at least pay the electical bill. lol
You're on your way...and it will be a fun trip~~~

xD My parents still don't understand the purpose of the sump tank. I explained it at least 3 times today and still, nothing. xDD

Congrats and good luck. Maybe you should use the KISS principle with your parents.

Tell them that it is the cheapest way to get more volume. it's either that or spend another $500.00 on a larger tank without a sump.
Or tell them that it is the excepted way to hide all the ugly tank items like your skimmer. heaters and ugly algae and stuff.
