Seems a little too much of a good thing can cause problems.
Too many tanks!!!
This week and next I will be getting 5 new tanks (2 NIB Chi for later projects not now).
Today begins the quandary with 2 tanks for me - one is a Fluval Edge like the other one I have, a 6.6G and I already have a 12G Edge so those will go on a long cabinet - tall 12G flanked by the 2 6.6G. No problem there. Except to get all the things moved around (not an issue immediately)
The other tank is a 46G Euro (long) style bowfront tank Yipee!!!
I also got more FW
fish with the 46G - the issue with them is a big Angelfish, I think a female will not work into my 72G (note all my present tanks in my signature)
All little tanks basically.
The 46G looks like it might be going SW
. An upgrade to a tank I don't love a oak tan Jebo. A great tank but it is the color which is an issue atm / Clashing in the LR
. Ruining a otherwise harmonious aesthetic.
As much as possible for a big room which doubles as a living room and a fish room
Positive side- When the opportunity popped up to get the 46G I immediately thought SW FOWLR
(and a couple little corals) since it is a black rim tank and would look great as a frame for the white sand and whitish rock.
Negative side - 3 weeks ago I was going to find the Saddleback Clowns a new home and downsize to only a nano SW
Mr Aqua 11.7G (the one I am supposed to pick up next week)
Positive side - FW
- More room for Angelfish and maybe do a new kind of Rainbow Fish, have Boesemani Rainbow in the 72G, or let the Angels raise a spawn - still downsize the SW
Negative side - FW
- Just one more tank to clean and take care of with fish very similar to the other tank.
The multiplicity of issues is that I am presently in the reducing pain (opposite of growing pain lol) downsizing the number of tanks I have. (not quite enough time to everything the way I would want to do it)
As a side note, from 2-3 years ago I am down from 13 containers of fish to maybe tomorrow 6 and then next week 7. See the problem here, an increase in numbers...not a decrease. There is a problem of not having enough room for them all too.
Any thoughts, revelations, insight, comments?
