HAHA - you're asking in the wrong place for any answers that are either good for your bank account or sanity.

I have 11 at home. Many, many more in my office.

An honest answer, though, is just enough to keep you happy, that you can easily afford, that doesn't end up being too much work.

Well I have 13 "fish" tanks running as of now... 2 being turtle tanks, 1 a shrimp tank, although not all of the fish tanks are planted (2 are not). To clarify a large amount of my room is filled with 5.5 or lower nano tanks.

I hear you on that...I gotta stop looking at Bettas at petsmart or even a petco I just happened to be near at the time. They speak to me too easily..I like shrimp better but they aren't very common around here so bettas have a hold on my soul atm

when you have to walk sideways down your hallway, when you contemplate buying a scuba suit, and turning your house into a giant tank, when you realize you have one of every Aquarium fish, or when they put you on hoarders, that's when you have to many.

None of that sounds too unreasonable. Until they put you on hoarders.. Imagine that. "but I was going to breed these some day.." "I've got to put this plant somewhere some day"

5 at once has always been as much as I can handle... 2-3 being show tanks...
