3 tanks in three weeks

I figured I had to come to the place where people would understand my compulsion. I started out with (1) 25 gallon bow front (complete w/stand $50) about three weeks ago and it's still cycling. I recently (today) picked up another two. So I am now adding a 30 gallon (complete $25) and a 10 gallon (complete w/stand $50).

I'm pretty sure no one outside of this forum understands my excitement, especially my co-workers but that might be because I was talking about picking up the tanks all day.

Thanks for looking : )

My T5HO Lights finally came in : D I can't wait to see how they affect my plants. So the driftwood is covered in Taiwan moss and I'm interested to see how it looks once it's grown out a bit. The stones are covered in java moss and riccia. I'm currently waiting on my xmas moss to attempt a moss wall to cover up the cords in the back.

When you make a moss wall like you were talking about, what do you use for the moss to attach to? And does it affect the filter and heater? I think it looks sweet but dont wanna catch anything on fire lol Also do you use co2?
