Hello... Started with a 6 gallon tank I bought at a thrift store thought it would be fun to have a couple fish , found out pretty quick that fish are work but I'm hooked. Recently I ordered a fish from an online store and now I'm dealing with ich, I have 4 tanks now and looking for number 5, I think I might be a fanatic.

what are you tank sizes? A bigger tank can be easier to manage. With a small tank, smaller changes can have a bigger impact. For example, you do a partial water change, your replacement water is a little too hot or too cold, a larger tank can absorb the impact easier. My first tank was a 12 gallon, but I quickly upgraded to a 55 and had one of those for years and years. I got away with some stuff that would not have worked in a 6 gallon tank, at all.
I say, consider a 55 gallon, something at least bigger than 30, and keep some of your smaller tanks for quarantine, hospital, maybe breeding if you get into that.

Enjoy!
