Re: Im obsessed!

Get a big tank that constantly sucks up a lot of money, or a couple, it calms you down some.

Re: Im obsessed!

Not always, I got the big tank, then kept adding more tanks. Thats why I ended up with 47 of them.

SUCCESS IS MEASURED BY YEARS, NOT MONTHS!!!
220 Tank build + 62 other tanks.

Re: Im obsessed!

47 tanks, wow!!! My question is, where do you keep them all?? Trouble is there are so many cool fish that cant be kept together. I can see myself getting another tank or 2 :-). i would like to somehow set it up like they do at the lfs. Have maybe 3 stacked on top of each other. One day.......

Re: Im obsessed!

I turned the dining room into a fish room, the only tank not in there is the 220. I have racks of 15 gal tanks 1 has 15 tanks the other has 10 then there is a 100 gal., 90 gal some 55's 2 racks of 20 gals, a 26 long sitting on cinder blocks. There is also a couple of 29's and 10 gal. Most are breeder tanks and only 2 have a community, one of cichlids and one tropicals.

I used to have cats, persians that I was breeding and showing, but health kept me from traveling anymore so sold most of the cats, kept 2 till they died of old age.

I've got three tanks and I'm at critical mass as far as maintenance and enjoyment, between work and school. I've got a 55 sitting in the garage that I got for free though. One day....

Re: Im obsessed!

The fish I keep entails me not keeping them together.So I have a 29,a 25,a 20 long,a 20 regular,a five gallon and then the six individual containers.The most fish in one tank is four.
