Anyone else have a saltwater tank? Post Pics

Just curious if anyone else had this hobby/addiction/money pit. I have hobbies, this is just one of them. Started this one late Jan early Feb of this year and have already wasted too much money.

Mine is just a 29gal so nothing fancy, but here are some pics

I already had the tank and stand which is just a normal setup from petco.. had some ciclids in for about a year.
I had to buy a new light fixture (160) skimmer (160) upgraded the filter which is a penguin 350 (~40 from petco) then sand, water, corals, fish, live rock etc etc...

should be cheaper for a 10gal though..
I actually JUST setup a 10gal for saltwater... gonna be a fish only tank with live rocks.. only spent about 40 bux so far..

yeah, theyre pretty scary looking... I saw 2 5" ones at the fish store.. some of them have been known to crack the glass of a tank with their claws
