I disagree. Assuming you were talking about a car that is actually worth 50k, you're analogy is incomplete. The correct analogy would be something along the lines of spending 50k on a 2011 Camero. Yeah, it's a very cool car, and everyone would want to see pictures, but if you go on a car fourm and tell everyone you've spent 50k on it, you're bound to get a few comments.
I'm very disappointed that people are afraid to comment on the money, or somehow think it isn't our territory. The amount spent was mentioned by the OP. Think about that, he didn't have to say it. I am definitely excited to see the results, but I'm not just going to continue posting as if everything is perfectly normal. Everyone here would voice their opinion if he was overstocking the tank, or if he was using 1/8" glass to build a 300g aquarium, or god forbid, wasn't going to cycle the tank. I'm afraid some people are missing the point of this forum.
