We new have 5 tanks...

We now have 5 tanks... (could a moderator maybe fix the new in my subject title to NOW. embarrassing typo!)

What is happening....

1 20g high community tank
10g betta tank
2 5g betta tanks
1 2.5g betta tank (our newest tank & our newest little friend lives in this tank, she is adorable and I am in love with her).

Does it ever stop...

Well I suppose it will have to, right now our newest friend is living on our table... :P

And we want to adopt a King betta at some point too.

How does this happen???!!

It's called MTS(multiple tank syndrome). Symptoms include but not limited to:
Frequent trips to the fish store
Lots of water changes
Research, research, research
Rearranging of aqua scapes
Figuring out where you can fit another tank..
Etc.etc.

Side affects include:
Reduction in cashflow
Loss of time doing things besides aquariums
Relaxation and joy

No known cure but research has concluded that getting another tank will help a little

Ughhhh.

There's a beautiful 75g setup that we are eying at our lfs... really good deal... comes with stand, light, hood, tank, it's such a good deal.

Then at a further away lfs, we found a really good deal for a 90g....

Problem is, nowhere to put it really..... and it's a lot of money, but less than we've spent on everything and everyone so far!!!! ::

I know what it's called hehe.

It's just like... we wanted one tank. And one fish. Oh well, it's fun and rewarding.

See what I wrote above to the other person I replied to. Good grief we are going to go broke in the fish stores.

HAHA!


As far as available space, I had no room either, and suddenly a 65g hex appeared in my dining room, and a 29g now accompanies the 55 in my living room..Our apartment is 1100sqft, we are in the process of buying a house that's just under 1900sqft, my wife is scared of what may come next

Jesse,

Hah! We live in a little apartment downstairs... basically a studio type idea... it's pretty small.... upstairs there is more room but we'd want it in OUR living space. We started out with one betta last year, upgraded him to a 10g tank, and now look what happened.

Good golly gosh!

We want to get that 75g or 90g setup and get like 20 panda cories and like 30-40 pygmy and/or habrosus cories, and have a bunch of shrimp, and a school or two of some pretty schooling fish. That would be awesome!!!!!

HAHA I think your wife has good reasons to be scared
