Novice to fish hobby

Hi everyone. I have recently (During the past 12 months) set up several aquariums. Decided to start small, with 1 gal. Beta bowls, which have now been exchanged for two 5 gal. beta tanks and a 2 gal. beta tank (all with heaters and filters). To add to the confusion, I next added a small 10 gal. tropical tank, which is now filled with sunrise? guppies and red platys. (They do like to reproduce!) Then I wanted Oranda goldfish, so I now have two 30 gal. tanks and an 18 gal. tank. Even with filters, you can imagine all the water changes that have to be made!!!! I finally figured out a place where I can fit in a larger tank, but would need to get rid of some of the other tanks or I'll be spending even more time making PWC's!!!

I've definitely decided that as the population dwindles, I'm going to reduce the number of tanks. I've been threatening a friend with a tropical tank for Christmas!!!!

This is definitely a learning experience!
