depending on the state of your marriage, that next one could be the lucky 13 or the unlucky 13.

Hmm, would it be wrong to rent a secret apartment for your fish instead of your mistress? I too want more tanks, but the boyfriend seems to think that just because there is a bare wall, doesn't mean a tank should go there. I'm just hoping he'll eventually contract MTS from living with me for too long.

I have five at the moment with two empty (one not exactly empty but I have Pomacea canaliculata snails there). Used to have 6 a few years back. Still have two ponds. I'm getting more tanks soon but they'll mostly be 10g. Can't go wrong with more though. I can always use them for some exotic fish to boot.

Hmmmm..... Momma said no more tanks over 100 tanks ago. lol She's still here. But I think I've finally reached MY limit. Any more tanks and I'll have to move just to have room for a bed. It's not quite that bad,......yet.

But that's not fair, you breed, so when you get another tank, you can hide behind the work excuse! I keep talking about becoming a breeder and my BF thinks that's totally cool, I can justify I gigantic fish room if I make money off of it. But alas, that is far off.

I just picked up my fourth tank this evening, a 75 gallon. That's three new tanks (242 total gallons) in less than one month...this is my new obsession.

How many times has she repeated her warnings so far, Bob?:P You seem to keep adding tanks despite her warnings.

My problem is that I keep thinking I got myself a good deal on a tank, and then going out and spending $200 on lighting. But it's oh so worth it.
