How many tanks do you have?

I live in a 2 bedroom apt. and have 3 tanks - a 55, and 2 rimless Mr. Aqua tanks - a 12 and a 13.3 gallon. I feel I have too many, hence this post. Maybe your counts will make me feel better

I've got three. One is coming down.

I've found it easier to get the gf if you stick to one tank until you are together. You don't want them to know you're crazy on the first date!

Lol some of these post are even making me feel better! I have:
2-75 gallons
1-55 long
2-29 gallons
1-25 gallon
1-15 gallon
1-4 gallon
None are planted so far but I'm trying to get them to that point. One 75 does have some plants in it from a package I ordered but only a few arrived alive so I don't know if it counts as planted lol

My boyfriend blames me for his fish tank obsession. He only had 2 tanks when I met him and was tearing down his saltwater. I might have suggested using the old saltwater tank for African cichlids and it was all over from there! lol. So he became the crazy fish guy and I'm the enabler. We also have 2 rabbits, 2 chinchillas, and a hamster. I know I know...its like a zoo at my place. But I love them all, including the boyfriend, and wouldn't have it any other way!

Hopefully we can find a house we can agree on next year so we can all have more space..
