I would have been like you guys but my kids reasoned with me. I was going to use our new 30yr old tank and repurpose a sturdy table for a 12 gallon and buy a stand for the 29 gallon. The kids brainstormed and showed me how I would have room for both tanks on the old stand and then just sell the big tank. At 62, their not wanting me to have a big tank made a lot of sense.
However, I did buy a kitchen cart for one of the current holding tanks, but it worked so good for my mom's necessities that I left the holding tanks on the kitchen counter. ( hard doing dishes. LOL)
If I was younger, I'd be doing exactly like you guys.
