MTS here too.

I picked back up on the hobby last year with a 29g my boyfriend gave me for my b-day and I just picked up tank #9, an 80g last weekend.

Guess I'm making up for those years when I didn't have tanks going.

I think a tank would have to be 200+ now for me to consider it "BIG"

my 29G is my large tank, out of 4. So I'm obviously one of the ones who picked the small tank answer. At some point I could see doing a larger tank (and yeah, right now, I'd call a 55 a large tank... 4 feet of glass is large enough!) It's easier for me to host more different fish species with multiple small tanks than to dump them in a big one and wait for the 'Real World' drama of some species picking on others. And if I can't move an empty tank by myself, single guy here whose friends are NOT into fish, I'm not buying it.

But it's just a personal preference. If I had something larger than a 55G, I'd probably just put WAY more small fish into it.

I want a tank in every room. ...so I guess I would like a couple large display tanks and then some smaller tanks 20-40g, here and there.
