I say no do not get the tank. If you do not have the space for them. I have a friend that has so many tanks in a small bedroom. I'm talking wall to wall. 1 tank is 275 gal on one whole wall. She complains that she has tank maintenance that last about 1 whole week. She also has a 75 gal. tank outside in a storage shed and a big outdoor pond to maintain. I can not imagine having to do tanks for 1 whole week. I have 6 tanks. 1- 55 gal, 1 -20 gal, 1 -10 gal, 1- 6 gal, 1- 3 gal. QT tank of 3 gal.
When I see new fish I really want I rehome the ones that I do not want to keep anymore on craigslist or take them to a local fish store for credit. If I did not do this I would have wall to wall tanks and to much water changes and tank chores that I would not like. I tell my friend that she should down size on some of her small tanks and just keep the kind of fish she really likes.The hobby of fish keeping will be more enjoyable for her. Oh I forgot to tell you we both belong to a Tropical fish club so every month they have mini auctions and it you are not careful you end up bringing to much fish home with nowhere to put them. When it becomes a pain to maintain then that's when you need to rethink your fish stock or down in tanks. Just thought I would share this.
