    When I first started in this hobby, I kept track of all my reef related spendings....it finally got way too scary....so, I purposely lost track somewhere along the way... :eek:

    I have spent 538.95 on my MB7 since Superbowl sunday. Thats not counting the untraceble sales through my paypal account, which total probably another 250-300$
    So total around 7-800$

    I would have to say that I'm probably between $4000-$5000. This is on more than one tank though as I have 8 up and running right now. I know a couple people that have $20,000 or more into one tank.
