Dude, first rule of reefing: Never add up the $$, before or after!

Lol I only did cause I was getting an idea of what all I still need to purchase...and since its not my first go around I was trying to make a list of the order I should get things so by the time I get it I should be ready for the next thing. I try not to remind myself my tank has already cost me around 6k...pretty crazy considering its all of 25 gallons. I'm happy I'm finally starting to use some of my closet junk though and I'm selling my sump/skimmer/ return pump to a kid for 140...

Did you know if you keep your records in a Rolls Royce Phantom they won't burn?
The Phantom is the coldest thing ever.

It's as cold as ice.

I, too, have a little file on my tank's expenses. I just don't look at the total when I add stuff to the list.

My balls are long gone, which is fine cause now they would just get in the way. You know, that old age droopy thing.

My wife only hears about the... inexpensive parts of my hobby, which, as most of you know, is a very, very small part of it! :)

If I don't know how much I've spent, I don't have a specific number to tell my girlfriend :P That woman always knows when I'm lying.

Next time she complains, take her to Tiffany's.
Tell her, "See? Your #### costs just as much."

Then leave.

You now have hand.

Leaving your gf at Tiffany's over an aquarium is some max level douchbaggery. :lol:

Poor you guys. I love how this whole thing is assuming that the guy is the one spending money on the aquarium and the girlfriend is pissed about it. You guys just need to find a girl that likes the hobby and is as hooked as you are. I'm a girl and I'd rather save money for coral than spend money on clothes/shoes/jewelry :P
