    Corals, then everything else. Excluding corals I probably spend around $150 a month on salt, testing, ro/di, food, etc.

    Am I having deja vu, or wasn't there a thread on this a few weeks ago?

    I spend almost nothing monthly. Everything is bought in large purchase or quantity either because of initial setup, annually sale or LFS is hours away. With only 2 years in the hobby largest expense is equipment, livestock, then everything else.
