Talking Six tanks - Addiction?

Hey you all! I've had fish tanks since I was very young, I think I set up my first 36 gallon bowfront with my dad on my 8th-9th birthday. I am now going on 18 and have become completely addicted to this hobby. I'd love to keep track of my 6+ tanks here.

Once I figure out how to get my pictures to not be huge, I'll start posting about them and their progress over the year.
Stay tuned!

The beginning of the tanks.
The picture with the ornament of the turtle was when I first set up the ten gallon and it housed Toffee, my crowntail betta.
The fish rack is an industrial shelf that we bought specifically for my tanks.

More to come, that's the tanks almost a year ago.

Just recently the rack changed to house a second ten gallon beside the first ten gallon, Toffee got moved to the very top. This was before new fish were introduced.

The first ten gallon got rescaped to have a "river" going through the middle. Can't wait for it to grow in more.

Our first time to a LFS we've never been to before here in GA brought home one electric blue crawfish, 20+ ghost shrimp, 15 guppies, and a common pleco.

When the plants came in, I had to move Mr Pleco and Mr Crawfish into their own ten gallon tank to keep them from destroying the brand new plants. They'll get a bigger tank before mid August.

The day the new plants came in was the day my first 11 guppy fry were born. We lost one on day two and mom is still doing great. All babies eat 5-8 times a day and are on the same food their parents are, just powdered.

Plants got planted and babies got a breeding box.

I know the pictures suck but I'll get better ones sooner or later.

About to go get some good pictures of the tanks and rack now. Tried earlier but the glare was too bad.

Suggested reflection...
People who are not addicted don't waste their time asking other people if they think
their addicted...

The shortest distance between any two points is a straight line...in the opposite direction...

I didn't necessarily ask if I'm addicted, more of a rhetorical question. I know I'm addicted.
