Been fishing keeping on and off for over 20 years.

Had around 7 or 8 tanks in total during that time period. Which isn't much for over 20 years.

Currently I have just 1 tank running and another packed up.

I seem to care more about tanks looking high end and modern, than actually putting fish in them.

Started with bettas in high school but got my first 'real' aquarium in 2003. That quickly turned into 15 tanks:



We were renters and unfortunately our landlord wasn't making house payments so we were forced to move. I gave up all the tanks at that time

Got back into the hobby a few years ago. This house doesn't have the space for 15 but I'm currently running 7. You can see pictures, stock, etc in my tank thread.

I've had tanks off and on since the 70s. FW tropical, cold water, native, planted, ornamental and koi ponds.
I currently have two 20g longs: high tech planted and low tech shrimp tank.

Im 4 1/2 years in and have managed to keep my tank count at 1. I may be getting my old ten gallon up and running for some nano fish or maybe a new pair of apistos soon but I've managed to hold off.
