Hey All!

 

Im a college reefer and I have no money! Lol, so anyone else who is in the same boat, lets get a thread going for making those nanos as awesome as possible, while being frugal! I don't know about everyone here, but reefing has been an inredible experience for me (2 months into the hobby) and I know everyone is proud of their tanks, big or small! Lets get the community of poor reefers together! I know theres people out there who love to exchange frags, advice, and great stories! HOORAY TO EVERYONE WHO BUYS CORAL BY THE PAYCHECK!!!!!!!! lol, so anyone who has frags, stories, advice, or anything else to say about being a college reefer, heres your thread!!!!

I was a college reefer. Now im a funemployed reefer.

 

I am 100% sure being funemployed is even better than being a college reefer!

ahh... I've found my people. If you want my advise.... just have a child. Financial aid will give you 10 times more money. On the other hand.... my expenses increased 20 times. crap. horrible idea!

I'ma college reefer (lol) too. WOOT WOOT!!! yeah, as it looks now, i'm probably gonna have a fish only due to the expense and risk of keeping corals and not being there for the whole time. I've got a cubemaster 12g with a sunpod 70W...

Yay for going to school in an area with no LFS within 45 minutes...

I just upgraded my 10g dorm tank to a 20H and here she is:
