    I thought I would share what I call a cool Valentine's Day present. We have spent alot of money on the tank. My hubby was going to buy me some coral, but I really wanted to get the BRS dual reactor up. I ordered $100 of filters, pump, media from BRS.

    If I told my friends my church or my next door neighbor,:mrgreen: they would say what???

    I wish my wife was this into it. I have to pull teeth every time I need something.

    My mom has no idea how much I've time and money I've spent on mine LOL But she doesn't see it often anyway since it's in the basement and she doesn't go down there when she visits ;)

    Ted that is too funny. I think people don't understand that a saltwater tank is alot more than buy one add saltwater and throw in Nemo. They don't realize the amount of care needed and the gadgets we want to give us peace of mind.

    My wife has been "supporting" this hobby of mine for a long time. She still doesn't understand why I ask for lights for presents. Or pumps, or other equipment. I also ask for gift certificates to the LFS. She doesn't understand that the less I spend on the equipment, the MORE I can spend on the pretty things that go into the tank.
