You mean like ever, in my entire life? I don't see how I could answer that..... you never know what's going to happen with this hobby.

I would love to have a hundred, but realistically, I would say around ten. Three or four being 30-100 gallon and the rest nano tanks. I would love to spend all day cleaning and taking care of animals, but that's not what will pay for the bills for me, sadly.

If there is still room in the house to live, then obviously there is room for more tanks, you can never have too many!

1-2 months ago, I wanted 15+ tanks (each 30+ gallons).

Then I talked to regular down-to-earth people and coworkers about my hobby. Now I just want to own about 5 tanks. There's more I want to do in life other than taking care of all of these fish tanks.

I was shocked when I read this, that is 255 tanks! I'd love to see pics! I'm def checking out your profile!

You must have a water changing schedule! So many tanks a day? How long do you spend cleaning tanks per day, assuming you don't clean them all in the same day.

Sorry for the questions, just very interesting!

Umm...Okay. I think obsessive would be the better description here. Unless you're making a living from breeding, me thinks that's a bit over the edge.....


Myself, I'm just getting back into it after a ~20 year hiatus, so just at a single 29gal community tank right now while I re-learn all my mistakes & learn all the new technology. Getting ready to set up a controlled/pressurized CO2 system to dive into plants for my first time. Me & the wife are already discussing how to move furniture around to maximize space in the living room for two 75's, the 29, and a 28 nano reef. It's nice when the spouse gets into it as well...
