    10) Because the archenemy of "Good Enough" is "Better."

    9) Because I am getting tired of hearing my wife say, "I told you so...."

    8) Because of the five new ‘frags’ that I never wanted.

    7) "I just have to move that one out into the light, just a little bit more... oops! there it goes... Right into the intake. {expletive}!!!!!

    6) You wake up, look at the tank, and decide: "I'll move that rock 1/4" that way." Then you think, "I'll just spin this one around a little bit..." Two hours later, all of your live rock is in a bucket. Two more hours pass, and your live rock is right back the way it started, and you missed all your classes for the day!

    5) Because yesterday my ph was 8.1. After "adjusting" my calcium reactor, it's 7.0 - and I wonder why my fish are having trouble breathing.

    4) I wanted to save money by heating my 240-gallon reef with a natural gas water heater (to save about $25 per month)... and that ended up costing around $2000 in damages from using the wrong type of PEX-to-PVC fitting. Ouch!

    3) Re-aquascaping translated into reefing terms means death and destruction will come: Dropping a large rock and breaking the glass on the bottom of your tank. True story.

    2) Because I wanted to move one small piece of rock and I ended up having to cancel my Valentine's Day dinner with my wife to re-do my entire rockscape. A month later and I still haven't lived that one down, if you know what I mean.

    1) A couple of years ago, I had an idea that it would be nice to one day have a reef aquarium. Looking at the last six months of my credit card statements, I should have just left it the way it was.
