I have not completly decided what I am going to do with the 10 gallon it is a toss up between hospital tank and possibly a grow out for the platy fry (if I ever successfully catch any from the main tank) or possibly a grow out for any others in the 50 if I turn out to have any successful breeding pairs. So many possiblities. It is filled with water right now and I am running a sponge filter on it that I did as a diy. Need to test parameters I have a bag of gravel that was in the main tank in it, but not sure if it has cycled. Been working on getting the 50 gallon cycled, which I think has finally sucessfully cycled If the 10 gallon is not cycled might try doing a fishless cycle with ammonia.

Now trying to make my mind up about the one I found on craigslist, figured it out to be a 16 gallon which could be used as a grow out, or even a hospital, it is tall enough that it would be able to accommadate an angel for a short period if needing to be treated. Have also seen people using storage contianers for grow outs, which would be cheaper than buying additional aquariums. So many different options, I have a feeling that there is a possibility that I could eventually become known as the crazy fish lady

By far I do NOT have the most tanks or pets...
I have a 29g and a 15g tank running... 5g in the closet that I am probably going to set up for a dwarf puffer in the next couple of months. I have an 8 year old chihuahua named Daisy, and a 7 year old Maine Coon cat named Romeo. I also have a hubby that requires more energy and care than all the pets combined!! If it wasnt for my hubby saying no, I would have either more tanks, or at the very least a 60+ gallon tank in addition to what I have now. And if it wasnt for owning my cat, I would have birds, either cockatiels, budgies, or a conure.

I have always had a pet/animal obsession. My degree is in Vet Assistant, I have worked for vets, kennels, and use to do non-profit rescue, foster, and adoptions for dogs.

*They call me, Amanda*
Tank 1: (29 gal planted) empty
Tank 2: (15 gal) empty

I'm a relative newbie; my daughter wanted a fish for her birthday a year ago and now we have two 20 gallon longs, a 10 gallon, a 5 gallon with a betta and a 2.5 gallon with some cherry shrimp. Last night I bought our third 20 gallon long to upgrade the 10 gallon. Plus two dogs. Wow, someone should have warned me about addictive fishkeeping can become.

Just set up a 20 this week for some convicts, dedicated a 5 gal for a betta. Still planning on getting one more 20 and could do another 10 if I was to get a double stand for the 10 that I have now. After that I would say I have reached my limit, at least for now.

Aha! Another victim falls prey to MTS (Multiple Tank Syndrome).

We all started out with "just one" tank. After the third we said " I swear this is it" and then it continues to snowball until there is no room left in the house/apartment.

We're building a spare room in the basement sometime this fall and I'm already tying to figure out what size tank will fit in there

Animal testing is a terrible idea; they get all nervous and give the wrong answers.

you know what,i'm glad i'm down to one tank,coz it's had a melt down
and all that's left is a couple of fish,some next to useless plants,MT snails,
and stenching gravel
so one is more than enough for me.

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.
