With that many tanks you should start doing grow outs tanks and frag tanks so you can make a little money on the side. Then your husband can't say much if it starts to pay for itself lol I'm starting to be able to make $50-$100 every month or two on frags now, got two guys stopping over tomorrow

Yeah, moving tanks suuuuuuucks. I had to move with my 20, 30, 5, and 1.5. Thankfully we only moved a mile or so down the road. The friend who helped us thought I was insane. His opinion was that I should put all the fish in the 5 gallon. Riiiight. Something like 15 fish, some saltwater and some fresh, all in one tank. He just didn't want to help move a 30 gallon. Thankfully I hadn't bought my 56 yet. He would have had an aneurysm. My mom wasn't too fond of loading it into her car, though. But she did take me to pick it up. Good thing, too. It barely fit in the back of her SUV, so there's no way it could have fit in my little Neon. In fact, loading the 30 into my car was difficult enough.

And yes, it is nice when the tanks start generating income. I can't wait until some of my fish are mature enough to start breeding. At least the snails can start some sort of cash flow soon, not to mention the reduction of the cost of providing crunchy foods for my puffers. I get most of their food fairly cheap via the seafood section of my grocery store, but having a nice self sustaining free food source will be nice. That's a few dollars less I have to spend on fresh and frozen seafood each month.

It's official. I now have four tanks running. I think this is an all-time record for me, too. I've been able to cap tanks at three, but I guess not anymore! I've got a snails only tank running in the spare room. Just need to get a better air pump for the sponge filter.

(Much to the chagrin of my parents) I will be setting up my third tank in the next couple days It will be a supreme red cherry shrimp tank, and I will breed them. Hoping to get some $$$ off of it.

I never even fought the battle! I knew as soon as the first tank cycled 20 years ago. That there would be more tanks.

This is how I justify it. "Just to many fish I want to keep that can't live in the same tank"

Now really...... How can you argue with that logic!! Lol

What? That's not your living room! Come on! Admit it. That's a pic of your local mom and pop LFS. NO?. Really?

Ever considered opening your own LFS out of your home?

Hate to be adding to the 'divorce court' drama...but...I'm trying to find a new home for a 22"x22"x48" tank (90 gals) for $200. No stand

Think of it as a new neighborhood for new fishies.
