Never enough tank space

I have a problem here. I decided to turn one of my 30 gallon tanks into an extra plant tank just for growing out plants, or keeping a few stems of something I didn't want in my current aquascapes but didn't want to get rid of entirely. A 30 gallon tank is plenty of room for this, right? WRONG! Three weeks later, this tank is full. I'm planning to rescape one or two of my tanks and I'm still facing the problem of deciding which plants I'm willing to part with to make room for new ones. I need an extra tank just to house the plants that can't fit into my extra tank!

15 tanks, and it's still not enough!

Oh wow, that is a lot of tanks. Personally, two tanks is enough for me. 1 showcase, and the other for refugium/quarantine/odds & ends.

Do you have high light running on all of them? For the tanks you don't want growing out, why don't you lower the light/ferts?

No, most of them are not high light. And four of them don't count --they belong to my daughters. And most of my tanks are pretty small. . .

. . .and just listen to the addict make up excuses and insist she doesn't have a problem.

Yet another shining example of MTS. Some of us could be the subject of yet another reality show dedicated to MTS. My wife would gladly host it.
