to start another tank or not ?

hay guys.
ok now i don't know if i'm going anywhere with this yet or not
i have a juwel rekord 96, with all the equipment sitting in a room
empty,and i think i want to set it up..............
what say you all,should i do it or not ?

if i do....what to put in there,i already have a comunity happy family.
i keep looking at peoples tanks,and i'm getting that feeling
of wanting the thrill of researching the different fish,and the bigest thing
setting it all up.
MTS is making me twitch.

when you set up a new tank,hide an extra
sponge or two behind some decor,that way you have
something seeded for you next filter.

Having another tank laying about empty,is much like trying to lay off the last piece of cake on the plate.I can almost hear the water running.

The most important medication in your fish medicine cabinet is.. Clean water.

well,it's housing a fed up female platy who is being hounded
by the males,she's due to drop any day.and two sets for corydora catfish, pepperd and albino,
they are spawing like mad,then scoffing the lot,i'm not fussed about
collecting the eggs at the moment.
i couldn't have it sitting empty,so i figured i'd put the gravel and decor in fill
it up and see how it goes.
it could all change,as i'm looking at different stuff.
thanks guys.

I laugh everytime I see this subject. It is an insane question, becuase it's one of those questions you ask when you already know the answer



8)






(I just wanted my response to be as insane as the question)
My problem always is finding a spot for the next tank...

My wife rolls her eyes when I talk about getting another tank
