1077, Slave to your fish that's why I rehome the fish that do not interest me anymore so I don't end up with tanks everywhere.
I have one 55 gal, One 20 gal, one 10 gal. baby fish tank, one 6 gal. in my kitchen , 3 gal. shrimp tank next to my computer, I have 1 hospital or QT set upstairs of 3 gal. set up now. That's 6 Tanks that are running.
I have 2 large plastic empty 3 gal. containers and 1 plastic 2 gal. that had snacks in it from Costco that I can use at any given time for sick fish or QT for new fish with a sponge filter that runs on a air pump. I just bought 2 more Theo heaters 25W for a 2-7 gal. tank that has a dial from Pet mountain on-line for these extra empty set ups if I need them. I always have a bio sponge to use in my other tanks and use the water from these tanks to fill these up because it is cycled.
I hate doing water changes and I have a friend that has wall to wall tanks and spends over 1 week doing tank and pond chores and she is in not a young person in her 60's. When I say 1 week I mean 7 whole days to maintain her setups. Her husband does not share her interest in fish and does not help her.I will not be a slave to my fish! Don't get me wrong I love my tanks but I think that is just crazy. I told her to downsize in the smaller tanks. One tank is so huge that it take's the whole wall of a small bedroom and to clean it you have to stand on a chair it's about 275 gallons. I'm not even sure how many tanks she has in that small bedroom. I'm afraid to ask her. She complains all the time about tank chores but gets more fish all the time at the auctions every month. When you do not enjoy your tanks and it gets this bad then you may have a problem.
