    Sometimes it's not about cost but rather about life circumstances. Yes the hobby is relatively expensive but you should know what you getting into.

    What I have learnt is all the expensive k@k in the world and trust me I had it all means nothing at all. In the last two months I have been running my tank on R250 and its never been more stable or looked better .....

    Reefing is awesome and will always be.

    I'm still in.

    Although I spend since November more time in Cape town than at home. So yeah, times are getting hectic. Although my system looks good with less fiddling. Partly comes down to your system setup and the husbandry routine involved.

    People tend to think that reefing is cool and easy till the tank gets full of nutrients and the cost of getting tank sorted out is more than they are willing to spend in time and money. It is like my fourth child! These are not a lot of people. A lot of people find out how much time it takes to maintain a tank but the biggest thing is change of circumstances ,moving house, change of jobs or getting married and of course finances. Pity though
