Smile Re-do all tanks or not?

I have been hiding from here for a long time, but for good reason, cause I had a baby

I had downsized to only 3 tanks before my son was born because I thought less tanks to upkeep is better. While the remaining tanks are still going alright (plants growing, fish healthy) they sure do not look the way they used to an more However there's a new TV show called "tanked" and now I feel even worst about my tanks now that I watched the show and am debating to
a) give all up but 1?
b) re-do all 3 to live up to my old 'standard' again?

Maybe some of the "old" people are still on this forum that remember what my tanks were like ~half year ago

I guess I'm lacking motivation and time right now so I'm not sure what to do.....

Hi Natalie, i was wondering how you were doing with the newborn. Glad to hear from you again.

As long as you can manage weekly water changes, and feeding of course, I wouldn't worry. A few years ago I had to do much the same for 3-4 years due to moving into a house and having the landscaping and work on the house taking my time (and money). I combined the tanks, since I didn't have enough fish to justify running 3 large tanks. Now I'm back to (currently) 7 tanks.

Byron.

I know I neglected you all, but anyone out there that's a parent themselves will understand how much time newborns take up and just how much the lack of sleep wear's you out

All tanks are getting their needed care, just not *the* care i'm used to if you know what i mean!?
You out of all people should also be happy to hear my Emperor Tetra's tank has a breeding pair in there and thanks to a mass of java moss I have a well growing off spring. Ironically I never knew they were breeding due to lack of time to observe, until it was Mother's Day and I sat next to it and seen the baby for the first time, now it is roughly over 1" long already
