Danny is more of a spender than a saver

Are you a spender or a saver?
Definitely a spender.

What do you spend your money on?
My girlfriend, mostly.

Have you ever saved up for a big purchase?
Yeah, the first thing I ever saved up for was a fish tank. It was a reef tank, so it was kind of expensive. I got fish, sand [and] rocks. If I were to guess how much I’ve spent on it now, it would probably be like $500 plus, with all the equipment and everything.

How big was it?
55 gallons.

How long have you had it?
For a few years. It was just recently converted to saltwater.

How much do the fish cost?
As cheap as $3, all the way up to $200.

But it’s worth the cost to you?
Yeah, it’s a hobby.

Do you have your eye on any fish right now?
I’m actually going to a reef convention, so we’ll see—maybe.
