Oh, sure.

Like we're likely to discourage you! Dream on.

If you have room for it, can afford the maintenance costs and have time to devote to a saltwater tank, get it.

no, I've no idea. You've got the cost of the salt, I suppose.

We are enablers, not interventionists.

Grab the tank, then do some research. If you don't want to take on a saltwater you can always pass it on to someone else.

LOL I should know better by now to not ask here for some one to talk me out of another tank. I will talk to hubby and see what he says normally I would just get it but right now he is the one carrying the water for the water changes on all my tanks since I can't because of my back injury.

I had a plumber put a tap on my laundry sink which takes click-on garden hose fittings. I use a garden hose attached to my siphon with the end out the back door onto the garden to drain, then attach it in the laundry and use it to fill the tanks. (Similar to a python set-up, but home-made, and my drained water gets used on the garden and doesn't go down the sink.) Carrying water is a pain in the neck (or back...)

LOL I don't have a sink in my laundry although I was thinking about trying something like that to the kitchen sink.
