Wife's idea of too many tanks

I'm sitting here in my office/fishroom, minding my own business and the wife walks in and says "you know, you're overdoing it - five tanks is way too many".

I didn't bother to interrupt her to say there are *two* 10 gallon tanks, so its really six tanks.

She thinks the two 55 gallon show tanks are plenty, but its not my fault these mbuna breed so much, and I have to set up fry tanks, is it?

Just thought I'd share a laugh. Now it's time to find some links to REAL fishrooms to send her.

I have a 40 gallon planted community in the living room and a 25 gallon reef in progress in my sons room. Thought about setting up a couple of 10s to breed killis, but I think I would be sleeping in the guest room with them for a while if I did... Lol.

When I was growing up ( In NJ BTW ) I had 15 tanks in my bedroom alone ranging from 7 1/2 gals to 30 gals. All with fish in them. 6 tanks, any size, are just not enough tanks. lol Too bad I don't have any pics left of my last breeding hatchery. I had over 400 tanks in there

Ask the Mrs. how many necklaces or pieces of jewelery she has and if that is enough. If she has more than 6, you should be just fine

Not all are running yet but I've got 13 total. Plus various containers with betta fry. Six is nothing!

I have 4 at the moment a 125, 75, 10, and 5 gallon and the mrs is always on my case. I also have a 40 and a 55 stashed in a friends basement lol. I may show her this thread so she leaves me alone about having so many. She did tell me as soon as we buy a house the basement or some other out of the way space is mine to put as many tanks as I want in.
