Am I cuckoo?

Everyone I know always wants bigger and bigger tanks, but for some reason, I have absolutely fallen for the nano set-ups, and I want to set up a bunch of nano reefs instead of 1 or 2 large displays. Please help me make sense of this madness. My best resolution so far is it is my MTS trying to maximize my tanks count.

10 Gallon FOWLR (and macro-algae)
20 Gallon Low-tech planted FW
30 Gallon Reef

I don't like big tanks personally. I don't think you're crazy at all!

Yes you are cuckoo. LOL just kidding. I like the bigger tanks. They are easier to take care of IMO. More water volume is more forgiving when it comes to problems and mistakes. But to each there own. Nano`s can be done with proper diligence.


You can view many of my fish and corals in my photo albums in my profile.

I'd love to have my one large tank. But other than that if I had access to endless funds I'd definitely have several beautiful nano reefs. It's like the FW guys with the small bonsai tanks (http://www.2dayblog.com/images/2008/...aquarium_2.jpg)

I just find the smaller tanks amazing, and they don't take up much space! They only downside IMO is fish selection
