Big Tank or Small Tank(s)

Thought id throw this one out here. What do you prefer, a big tank (55g +), several smaller tanks, a big tank with some smaller tanks, or do you have MTS and just get any tank you can?

There was no option for multiple large display tanks

I used to have several smaller tanks, now I like to focus my energy into a fewer larger tanks.

Yeah! This would be my vote. 2 large 55 gallon display tanks. One that is a rocky African cichlid tank and one that is a planted SA cichlid/community tank. 2 very different looks, but both display tanks.

Right now I have one big 55 and 3 smaller 30 gallon and under. I would trade the 30, 20 and 10 to get one 55 gallon for my planted tank in a second!!

I always did conisider 55 as large, until i got my 150. Im down to 3 tanks now, the 150, 30, and 10. I fully plan on getting another big tank like a 100+
