Mts

So, how many people out there have more than one tank? I am going to assume almost everyone.

I only have one tank due to lack of space... a 33 long.

But, if I could I would have at least probably two or three more tanks for different purposes.

We are looking for a house currently and if we find one with a basement.... that would be a great opportunity. I would love to also have a huge tank like a 90 gallon or 125. And then maybe some smaller tanks, possibly another 33 long or 40 long followed by either a 30 breeder or 40 breeder... or both. Lol.

One thing I've always wanted to do was a dedicated shrimp tank like for cherry shrimp. I guess they could probably suffice in something like a 20 long though.

I would imagine many if not most people on this forum end up with MTS. One tank is never enough once you get serious on this hobby.

I started with one 10G planted tank and then added another 10G and then a 4G pico and then a 7.5G cube tank. All planted low energy setups.

Pretty small tanks! I still am having a huge desire to have more than one tank. Even if it's just one more. Just for something different. I am considering trying out a 20 long when I'm able to. Possibly as a cherry shrimp tank. It would be cheaper, pretty easy to maintain and has very similar dimensions to my 33 long.

I can pick up a stand for it at my LFS, a cabinet style one for 120 dollars. Not too bad. Compared to how expensive it is for 40 breeder/55 gallon stands. Close to 200 dollars. I'm talking cabinet style ones which is a must for my wife. Plus... always nice being able to get a 20 long from the DPG sale for 20 bucks. A new tank and stand for 140 dollars. Can't beat that.

I currently have two twenty gallons, different dimensions, and a five gallon.

What I want is to set up a 75 gallon tank for angelfish once we move.

I have 12 at the moment, and if anything will probably lower that number rather than increase it in the future. 125, 125, 45, 45, 29, 20, 20, 20, 20, 10, 10, 5.5

I really regret when I got my 33 Long, selling my 40 breeder setup lol I should have tucked it away for a rainy day! That way I could have easily reset it up and used either the 40B or 30B

Currently a 45, 16 and a 29 and I'm hoping I can get the basement fixed up over the winter to start a fish room down there. It needs level floors and heat.

I started lockdown in March with just one aquarium. Since then I started a 5.5 gallon pea puffer tank & a 15 gallon Fluval flex. I am currently looking around my place to see where I can squeeze in one more !!

I have a 75, 20 long, and 10, and I'm setting up a 40 breeder that's 3/4 cycled.

Started out with a 1 gallon dwarf frog tank that I begged my parents for in elementary school. Now I have a 65 gallon, 60 gallon, 10 gallon, and a 9.6 gallon. And I recently broke down a 5 gallon.

I have a 29 community and a 10 gallon dwarf puffer tank. I'm starting to butter my significant other up for a reef tank though. This is going to take some work.
