I'm really starting to think about expanding my emersed systems. One of the local thrift stores has a huge stack of 20 longs for like $5 ea. I was thinking about maybe slapping a layer of silicon on the empty(and leaky) 55 I've got. Although I can set up a couple 20 longs for the price of the silicon. haha... I'd need a couple more cheap clamp on domes either route... already have some extra bulbs. I think I've got a heater or two that would do the trick for a 20L too. I was looking at a couple different 120s and 125s on craigslist, but I don't wanna have to deal with that size tank yet. I think I will have more control of the environment in the smaller tanks too.
I'd like more room to have labeled pots of stems and to be able to play around with plant propagation. Don't be fooled by the previous sentence too much, I want more crypts too. I'd like to have space to really expand the collection of Cryptocorynes to include some of the less common species. At the same time I don't want to get rid of the common species just yet.
I think it would also be nice to set up a tank that is specifically for the hard water Crypts. My current systems are both geared more toward the black water species.
