 What are the biggest cons to a saltwater tank? Never had one but seeing something like that looks appealing. How difficult and expensive is it? How much upkeep on a daily basis for example?

Look forward to hearing someones response by the end of 09. lol

It's pretty hard. And it can get unbelievably expensive depending upon how addicted you get to it. lol.

I haven't had a setup in a while and I doubt I will. No free time left on my plate. New baby, started training again etc...

If you keep it simple with just fish and liverock it's not bad but the fish can be expensive and if your get any unwanted parasites it's horrible.

Coral on the other hand will get you on the initial costs of each piece and will make you nuts when stuff starts dying and you are testing everything and nothing is helping. Or when it's 3 am and you notice you left your RO/DI filter running or the float switch is stuck and you need to shop vac your house/basement.

There's good info and resources here if you are still interested

If you want to do coral on the cheap, the best thing to do is to buy frags or get friends interested in the hobby and trade coral frags with them
