That's the way.

Most of my 'new' equipment is 2nd hand. I say 'new' because the stuff i originally bought new is much older than my 2nd hand purchases lol.
People seem to forget that the enjoyment of the hobby is the process, as well as the end product. For some it's calculating ferts, pruning, scaping. Others it's the fish interactions and breeding. There are others who love the tech and gizmos. That's where this hobby can become a money pit. You dont need expensive stuff to enjoy it.
For me ? I actually love just staring at it and doing as little work on it as possible.
