More than one tank.

I am thinking about starting another tank or two next year.

Please let me know your experience with have more than one.

Also what is the best way to mix salt and do water changes?

Thanks.

Sorry it submitted before I was done..but it depends how big is your tank? I mix my salt in 2 five gallon buckets with heaters and pumps in the bottom for about 24 he's before adding...also multiple tanks can be stressfull at times especially saltwater as your always checking everything and monitoring everything closely..

currently have
125 sw
72g bf fw

about 2 months ago I had an additional 10g in my sons room and a 5g fluval chi in the bedroom. once the 125 is fully stocked and upgraded, ill prob redo the chi tank. but as of right now its just too much. the 72 is relatively easy compared to the 125.

It's easier when you are already doing maintenance and weekly water changes. I currently have three tanks, a 135, a 60, and a 5 gallon pico. All three have coral and by far the most difficult tank is the pico, go bigger!

Thanks for the replies so far. I thought maybe there was a trick I am missing on water changes or something. Saw a guy say he had five tanks on here. I may be to anal to monitor more than 2.

I have 3 reef tanks. A 125 gallon Peninsula, a 10 gallon in my bedroom, and a 5 gallon Fluval spec tank in my son's room. I do all of my water changes at the same time and I can do it in about an hour.

haha five tanks isn't that many, i have more than that. some people on here have 15+ tanks, take a look at Hukits profile. if you just take a day out of the week for water changes and maintenance its not that hard. my tanks take at least 3 hours to do the water changes
