And I like the Android part
Theres about 25 different species in the picture, which one are you talking about?

Most of the frags cost anywhere from $40-$75 when I originally purchased them. Theres a lot to it. I have to dose chemicals everyday and the tank goes through 2-4 gallons of water a day that has to be replaced on a regular basis to keep the salinity at the right level.

Thats where the automation system comes in. It doses and adds water every few hours to keep the levels of tank consistant (very important for coral growth). The tank emails me when the topoff water is low and there are temperature fluctuations outside of the norm.

Besides my car, I spend my $$$ on trains.

I have spent atleast $1500 on parts for the locomotive I am working on right now, that is a LOT of money for a 18 year old, lol.

I enjoy seeing folks list their kids and wives as the things they spend the most money on. I have always said I robbed my dad of his expensive hobby (which was GMs) so he spent time on his less expensive hobby, computers. I spent plenty of his money growing up playing sports (not cheap) and music (also not cheap).

Now, most of my disposable income goes to my 1968 Mustang Coupe, my VW Golf TDI (winter car...new battery, temp sensor, broken good latch, crazy electronics, so far this year), and karting. I joined an indoor kart racing league and its pretty pricey, but crazy fun. My family also goes all out for gifts any chance we get, so I've dropped a few grand on Christmas already, too.
