I have 1 running, a high tech 55 gallon planted tank. It consumes a lot of time as is but I want to upgrade to at least a 75 gal in the next year. My parents are the only thing keeping me from getting 1 or 2 more as I'm only 15!

You don't call 56 gallons large-ish?!?!

I don't want to list them all as I'm in denial, but here they are:

1x 29 gal planted
3x 10 gal, one is dad's planted, two are for zebras
2x 2.5 gal, one is quarantine, other is betta

It's been less than a year since I really got into fish 0_o I'd have more if not for the fact that I share a room with my sister in a manhattan apt. and my parents won't let me.

Man, memories....
Just got back into fishy's again with a 30 gal salt tank and a DIY filter set-up[ (never gonna buy another again, much cheaper and more efficient to build myself )

But to the business at hand;

Hi everyone, my name is PB and I'm an addict. I've been clean for about a decade but when I was offered some free stuff and all the real coral decorations I gave to a deceased friend back, well, you know the story.

At the height of my addiction I was helping operate a LFS (bad combo, I know, like an alcoholic working at a bar) and had in descending order;

a 100 gal aggressive community salt tank, was even home to an orphaned nurse shark for about 6-7 months.

a 55 gal show South American tetra tank fully planted with 60 cardinals, 25 marble hatchets, couple dozen glo-lite tetras, cory cats, etc, etc.

a 40 gal South American cichlid tank with the usual suspects, Oscar, Jack, Red, Big Tex, Blue Eyed pleco and a beautiful Gold Severum.

another 40 gal with a very personable yet mean Undulated trigger. It was like having a rabid pit bull puppy in a tank!
He would pile all the rocks and sand up against the front glass so I couldn't see him.

a 26 show tank with a pair of Gold Rams and a mated pair of Angels, Silver and Blushing.
also helped care for a friends 200 gal show with an Silver Arowana and a 12 piranha about 7". They never bothered the Arowana, but man they sure did some damage to lg feeders and the occasional feeder rat.

a 15 gal that I can't remember what was in it...turtles maybe???
a 10 gal for feeders

and one of my all time favorites;
a 1.5 gallon plexi hex that housed a pair of the first few hundred tank raised Ocellaris Clowns and a carpet anemone. Got them from Instant Ocean when they were barely a 1/4" long, had them for about 3 years.
This was about 32 years ago.
Hey, I guess that qualifies as a nano tank long before the word "nano" even became common vernacular!
Well, waddayaknowaboutthat

Thank You
I'm PB Smith and I'm an addict.
