If you really get hooked then be ready to spend a lot lol. [...] I try not to remember how much I have spent on diving lol.  But I absolutely love it. Certainly what brought me into the saltwater hobby. 

I'm confused.  

 

Did you mean SCUBA brought you to us...?

 

Or did you mean your ability not to remember how much you've spent is what brought you to us? 😉 

 

(I've heard boat people say reefing is "expensive" for whatever that's worth.)

 

Speaking of diving and photography, is anyone a fan of https://www.youtube.com/c/BlueWorldTV?

I absolutely love this thread! Planning for a future tank is what I spend a lot of my time doing. 

My plans are a reef edge with a bommie or 2, I think Sandro Wagner (wensano on Instagram) did it so well. 

I have a folder on Instagram where I save images from reefs that I'm going to use as my inspiration! I'll attach Sandro's tank too 👍

nice to see you join the forum, been a fan of your tank on IG.  and yeah, miss seeing wensano since he broke it down, those stags are just so damn nice.

 

I love the reef edge and channels that you showed, def will be something I'd like to emulate one day as well on a larger tank

The diving itself is what drew me to the hobby. Reefing is the closest I get to the ocean except a couple times a year. 
Certainly not the expense of either hobby. Lol

Thanks buddy, drop me a message on there, would love to see your tank!

 

I'd ideally like a huge area to Scape but future tanks are limited to 4ft apparently 😂

After so many great pics on this thread it strikes me how realistic the lighting was during the hobby's "halide years"....very consistent with the look of these photos.
