How many tanks do you have?

Just out of curiosity. How many tanks do you have?
This question is for people who dont do this professionally or as a livelyhood, aka... store owner, breeder and such.

I have 5.

Got back into the hobby (my wife calls it something else) in December 2010 with a 75 gallon planted tank (DIY stand, DIY lights, etc). Since putting that tank up, I added three more (40 breeder, 20 tall, Fluval Edge) and just this week I"m starting a 10 gallon dirt tank.

I have two; an 8 and a 72 bow. But I'm hoping to get a 34g SW setup next year sometime after I move for school.

3 - a 40g community, a 5g betta tank and a 2.5g betta tank. Well I have a hermit crab tank too but I don't think that counts.

I have a total of 10:

2 2.5g planted nanos
20g planted
29g planted
15g shelldweller tank
2 10g, 2 30g, and 20g long livebearer tanks

The total comes up to 14 if we count my daughters' tanks: 10g ember tetra tank, 5g planted shrimp tank, 5.5g betta tank, and 4g betta tank. And one of my daughters has been agitating for another, because she needs "more room for plants."

1 it's a 150 planted, I've got a nano kit (5g) in the garage and maybe even a 10g full of supplies, but there's no room to set them up.

In service - 4, waiting to be brought online - 2, with one that is going to be retired replacing one of the existing 4. My original 5 gallon will be replaced by a 20g L. I have a 55 coming once I finish my stand I built.

I was up to five at one point. A 10, 15, 32, 86, and 180gallon. All planted. Down to just the 32 and 180 now, mostly in order to simplify my life, lol, 2 kids and 2 great danes take enough of my time. I took apart the glass from the 86, I intend to build a rimless 33 long at some point

4/26/2012, lost the finest man. Rest easy Pops...
<--Great Danes are people too!
180g, Fluval FX5, 404, 128watts t-8, low tech, heavily planted, with Albino and reg bristlenose plecs, Congo tetras, Amanos, a herd of Corydoras Sterbai, Boesmanis, a big old common plec, & Otos.
32g tall eclipse3, fluval403, with a handful of bristlenose plecs.
