1 72 gallon planted with Roseline sharks, espei pencilfish, green neons
1 30 gallon newly planted with Inlecypris auropurpureus (Lake Inle "Danios")
1 16 gallon heavily planted with coral red pencilfish and Botia sidthimunki
1 5.5 gallon moss and crypt tank with crystal red shrimp
1 empty 6 gallon nano cube

And always trying to find floor and wall space for another new tank! Nobody warned me how addictive this hobby was going to be!

Well lets see.

1. I have a 125 gallon that is currently hosting salt water, but will go back to planted in a few months.
2. 110 gallon planted with rasboras, discus, tetras and loaches.
3. 55 gallons currenty holding salt water stuff, but will go back to low light planted.
4. another 55.
5. a 7 gallon w/ tetras.
6. a 370 gallon salt water reef under construction with 50 gallon sump and 100 gallon refugium.

so I guess that makes about 872 gallons.

Seriously I think that once the reef tank is done I will be down to the one salt water tank, the 125 in-wall planted and a 110 low light in my bedroom. I think I need the get rid of some tanks!

Currently tankless for the first time in 24 years... Getting the itch again

I am quite suprised on the number of tanks you guys have. I don't know if I have the time to take care of more than 2 tanks.


1x 20g - Planted, rams, neons, otos, and a betta.
1x 10g - Betta fry raising tank.
1x 3g - Empty at the moment, may be the new home for the betta.

I have
1-75gal plant tank
1-36gal bow plant tank
2-30gal long, one plant the other is not set up yet. It will be added to the new addition to the aquarium room in my garage.
2-20gal that I use as holding tank for plant I sell
2-15gal plant tanks.

I would like to have more but with outside pond, one water garden in a barrel, and a whole yard full of flower bed to care for time is the real problem. Work really gets in the way if you know what I mean.
