In November I converted a fresh water tank into my first SW. Now I have a 40g corner tank with sump, and I am in it over $400.
Last week I got a good deal on a long 90g, and I am excited to set up the bigger tank.
Downside is now I don't have any tank budget left, so I will be piecing together supplies until I am ready to launch the 90.
I have a long background in freshwater, I built two ponds in my yard, and have had several small fresh tanks.
I look forward to getting deeper into this hobby!

You know you're hooked when you find yourself saying that hahahahaha

I returned to the hobby a couple months ago. I wasn't going to go any larger than a 12.

I'm up to a 40 and growing.

Pete Moss,

You point out the exact reason I have stayed away for so long. I sold off my 125 when I moved and have been "happy" with a 6 gal nano cube for 4 years. I've avoided this forum and LFS's because I knew that as soon as I started looking I'd be back and hooked worse than ever...
Sure you are, you are Crappy Reef Club Member #1 -Chk4tix

Is bad when I have to build a second income to support this addiction, glad I found a good source of second income.
