Multiple tank syndrome

Hi all,
I need help!!! My boyfriend and I live together. When he first started with fish I was all for it- totally supportive because I like fish as well. But now he wants too many tanks that I feel we can afford and maintain. What should I do???
Thanks!!!

It is a very addictive hobby. I started with a 20g and within one year have 5 tanks ranging from 20g to 90g. Have him settle on one large tank. That should make him happy. Hopefully.
For me it is 25 years later and I have over 200 hundred tanks and my hobby has become my job. Would'nt have it any other way. Good Luck

Lol so no cure? It's just that we already have 5 tanks and now he is wanting a discus tank. You guys never experienced any neglect of the tanks because of how many you have?

I'm not sure I can get him down to one because we have salt and fresh water, and aggressive fish. I love them I just feel more tanks is too much

I just say thin the heard do one large salt and one large fresh and then maybe a discus tank and sell the fish that won't get along

I had 10 or more at one point but after I got my big tanks I sold them all and put all that money into them had lots of money to have all the things I wanted

This is what I would do maybe not for you but anyways

Buy 2 80-100 gallon tanks in one have all your saltwater fish

In the other mix your dempsey and demasoni

Keep your 40 for your goldfish

Sell the rest that's just my opinion
