Hi Everyone. My into is a fhisy fairy tale

Once upon a time there lived a girl who bought a very pretty and very small fancy goldfish and very small aquarium starter kit. Of course the goldfish grew and grew and grew. Each time the goldfish grew it got a bigger and better tank.
The girl’s next door neighbour also had aquariums. What the girl didn't know was her neighbour was a mischievous spirit. This mischievous spirit would put a spell on her and make her buy more and more fish and more and more tanks, especially if they where on sale. The two of them would travel far and wide to find the perfect things for their aquariums. The girl’s mate knew that when the two would go out together there would always be new fish, new plants and sometimes new tanks.
As the number of tanks increased so did the amount of time the girl spent on water changes and filter media changes. When the number of tanks got to a baker's dozen the girls fishy fairy godfather appeared. This fairy godfather was kindly and smart and tired of helping with water changes. So for the girl’s Christmas gift the fairy godfather bought he a 75 gl tank, stand, lighting and canister filter. In exchange for this 75 gl tank the girl had to promise that there would be no new fish tanks.
Today the girl has one - 75 gl community tank, one - 40 gl old style breeder tank with one black ghost knife and three skunk botia , one - recently empty 40 gl (the very small fancy goldfish that grew and grew just died) and one 10 gl quarantine tank.
True to her promise to her fishy fairy godfather, no new tanks have come into the house - yet!

Welcome! A lot of us here know what you mean about getting more and more tanks.. it's a condition known as Multiple Tank Syndrome (MTS). Its very hard to cure this condition!
