    Thinking on selling this hobby

    well im in a pickle.
    i think i may have blown every last cent on this hobby . im starting to see all of the wonderfull things that i could do with this tank of money, and i just may leave the hobby for a while. at least till MBNA and student loans stop calling my house lookin for their money. i have a few more years of school left and cant see the future money being available for this tank. im kind of all over the place right now and regret starting such a money pit in the first place. i love the hobby and i will return to it eventually.
    im not a beleiver that this hobby is for a poor student anymore.

    if any newfies out there are lookin for a reef gimme a shout

    That's too bad, Aquamann. I know it is a disappointment for you.

    i would actually sell it if you can get a good price as you know you will most likely want something bigger or different and.. who knows with the technology in the next few years might be alot more advanced and your equipment might become obsolete. like jumping from freshwater to saltwater type feeling.

    either way.. sad to hear about that

    moving.. so temporarily out of SW :b8:
    planning next tank, possibly 60x30x20 on 2x plasma.

    Sorry to hear that. It is expensive I'll agree with you. I think the problem is that we look at our tanks and forget finances and live over what our lifestyle afford. Fortunately I have a husband that puts me in perspective and I buy when what I can afford.

    Again sorry to hear but maybe it's for the best till you get out of school. Post a list when you get around to it, if you're sure this is what you want, of what you're looking to sell

    But make sure there is no other solution and it's what you need to do before you do it.
