Lol 65k for fake coral and rock. Sometimes I like to burn my money too.

My wife and I make great money. But 65 k is a good deal of cash to go through on a build non the less im sure ever one would agree the extra car one spends 50k on and only drives it 3 monthes of the year would be more of a waste of money. Its something he can enjoy year round.

Why is his build thread being inundated with comments about money? It's his money and his tank.

Anyway... Congratulations on your new tank? Is the artificial coral a start up so the tank doesn't go through the new tank blahs while you wait on growth or are you just doing a fish only setup and won't ever be adding live coral? Also what are your fish plans? Obviously you're going to have a hippo tang so I assume it's going to be a peaceful tank. Schooling fish? The great thing about 300 gallons is you can put in some serious livestock.
Also... How do you access the tank for maintainence? Is the built in open on one side to allow for entrance into the tank?

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.

Most likely money is brought up since its a year or two wage for many of this forum.. either way could care less what poeple spend. I just can't wait to see pictures of he's build hope he stays around to show it off.

Maybe that's what I'll say the next time someone casually mentions they are going to put an Arowona in a 20g tank. None of our business.
