My mind wanders.

My job is moving into our slow season so I have time to think, today my mind was on fish tanks. I have my 29 community tank on a large, low and long dresser. So I was thinking, sell the 29 and I could easily fit 3-4, 5 gallon bow front tanks. one could house a betta, another could be heavily planted with shrimp and maybe a puffer in another. I think the weekly tank work(pwc's,gravel vac,ect) wouldn't take much longer than it does with my current 2 tanks. But then I'm back to where I started. I first bought a 5 gallon then upgraded to the 29. I enjoy everything about fish keeping, but what I really love is the initial setup and designing of new tanks. True, I'd be down sizing and I would have to part with my larger fish, but having more tanks gives me more design choices.

If your asking if you should downsize from your 29g to 3-4 5g tanks, i wouldnt. You will eventually want upgrade again and you dont have many stocking choices for a 5g tank. True having 4 different 5gallon tanks does give you more design choices, but like i said your stock choices will be limited. I would recomend maybe just finding another place in your home where you could put maybe 2 different 5gallon tanks, one planted shrimp tank, and one betta tank, and keep your 29gallon where its at.

I'm not asking(sorry if this sounds rude). It was just an idea I had. And yes I know I'd even want to upgrade to a larger tank again.
