Lol i aint buying it, i barley have a place for my 55 gallon now, especially since i dont have a stand for it, try keeping 10 tanks in your bedroom, with a queen size bed, dresser, tv and side table, the 2 biggest are 55 gallons
5 ten gallons, 1 14, 1 20 and 1 29


I wish i had the room for a big tank

That sounds wonderful! You couldn't possibly stay stressed out in a room that full of happy fishieness. What a wonderfuly functional decore :)
who needs one big one when you can surround youself with lots of little ones.

I'm debating the wisdom of a 225 gallon tank with all the trimmings, pumps, filters, sumps, decor, all of it for $400. I KNOW I should just get it, but I'm having issues convincing myself that it won't suck up what little storage space we have while I sort it out. I want the tank, but not the work.

I'd love to, but I hate committing to things like this especially such BIG things without talking to my husband and as luck would have it, he's in the ether right now with no idea when I'll hear from him again. I mentioned it in an e-mail and he responded to everything but that. With my luck he'll have been 100% for the opposite of whatever I end up doing. I don't even have friends or family to bounce this off of.
