I wouldnt say bored, more so I get hooked on ways to continue to improve it. God I hope my wife never finds out how much I spend on my tanks.

I don't get bored with my tanks. My tanks are my zen. I'm also at the point where I don't mess around with stock or decor, everything's pretty much settled. If I have a death, it's rare and doesn't freak me out anymore. I don't sweat having fry and let them survive (or not) in whatever tank they happen to be born in.

Life with established tanks is pretty much perfect.

I so wish I could be as relaxed as that... I guess because ive had so much happen in my first 6 mths I've been thrown for a loop.
I rearranged my 20g yesterday moving gravel I wanted in there and I can't stop staring at it.. Looks good and I'm happy with how it is...
I am so very happy to have one less tank on the counter in the living room though... Just blocked everything...
One thing i'd love is a 5g nice shaped tank for bathroom with a betta

Bettas are very social fish and seem to crave interaction with their humans. Unless you have a chronic bowel issue, I wouldn't consider keeping one in the bathroom. Poor fish would be alone all the time. Then again, if you DID have a chronic bowel issue, I think I might pity the bathroom betta even more.

So that would leave the bedroom out too then.. I have enough in the living room... No more tanks for me I guess... I'm going to use my other 10 for my son in his room if he ever earns it with his school work

You know, there's no law that says you have to get a new tank every few months...... if you ever want to reach the zen thing, you've got to just sit back and let your existing tanks settle in for the long haul.

I got bored. Set up a reef tank and haven't had a dull moment since.

I haven't gotten bored with my tanks yet. I just don't think they are really complete yet. I keep changing stuff around and not quite happy with them yet
