Agreed 100%. I too am still in the salt water hobby and have dished out hundereds for an eye of a chalice that was the size of a pencil eraser..Expensive hobby? You've never kept a reef tank! Froggers don't need 8 or 10 different test kits (the more accurate the more $), monthly salt water changes, very high output lighting, protein skimmers, assorted reactors, high volume water pumps, unregulated vendor claims, etc. I'm still a reefer too, but I really love the cost of the frogger hobby...
You are usally into it an easy couple thousand for a decent sized setup, nice equipment, sand, and rock. Fish and coral not included. LOL So when I see a frog that is only 70-80 and most plants I have seen being no more then 20-30, is a bargin!
