Just curious, but where do you keep so many and such big tanks in your home? I have a decent size house for my family of 4, but there just doens't seem to be room for big tanks or lots of tanks? I've been bitten hard by the fish bug since joining this forum!!! :-\

MTS strikes again ! I have a 75g and a 55g in the living room.
Then I Have a small room off the hall way that was advertised as a bedroom but isn't big enough so now it's a fish room with 2-30g longs, a 55g, a 20g long, a 20g grow out tank and a 29g tank going up soon as a grow out tank.

I have smaller tanks lined all over the living room. 30, 20, 3 10's, 3 5's, 4 and a 2.5.
I just keep adding tables and stands. lol
Oh, they have also started to invade my dining room. A 20 long and a 4g.

I have no idea how that happened.

The counter space in my kitchen houses 4 betta/ADF tanks. A small desk in the kitchen houses another betta tank. The kitchen wall houses a 90g and two 20g tanks.

My family room houses 6 55g tanks, two 75g tanks, a 5g betta tank, 4 29g tanks, and two 20g tanks.

My bedroom houses two 55g tanks and three 29g tanks

The extra bedroom houses a 50g corner tank, a 20g tank, and a 29g tank.

Double-stacking stands are the way to go!

Well, I just now got my first tank cycled and now watching to make sure its stable...I already am dreaming about more tanks! ah! I live with my family till school is over and I have a smaller room. Actually we don't have a particularly small house but I have the smallest of rooms. I had plenty of room to fit my 20g and stand...I'm all ready rearranging & getting rid of furniture in my room in my mind to see where I could fit another without feeling to cramped or cluttered...My 20 gallon stand actually has room to put one on the bottom I'm thinking of putting one there and making it like a quarantine tank spot since I hear they are such a good idea. I could probably fit one more tank/stand combo in my room with out too much trouble (would have to get rid of something though). After that I prob will have to wait till I'm in my own place, then I'm thinking I can do 1-2 tanks in every room

lol, i dug out my old 10 gal tank and put it under my 55 to keep my gourami in while i cycle his 29. The stacking stand thing is pretty handy. Don't have MTS yet, seeing as I now have an empty 29 gal. but will probably see something in the coming year;D

HOLY _________ some of you don't have no worry about your house burning down you have enough water to put it out. I think people should start posting pics of there "fish rooms".

I only have 2 tanks and a pond so it's easy to space out.

We have 2 on counters in the kitchen, 3 in the living room & 1 on the landing. I so want a tank on my bed side table, the Betta tank that is in my Kitchen was meant to be on my bedroom but never quite made it.

I have a 15 gallon and a ten gallon in my bedroom. A empty 75 gallon off the kitchen next to the computer that is in progress, and 3 empty 10 gallons in the shed, not sure what to do with them. Watch out for these folks they will lure you into mts lol.

Good morning Jenifer

I had my screened porch enclosed. The tank was too large to get through the house so the room had to be built around the tank (more or less ). We managed to get the tank in place before the final wall was closed.

You guys are a very bad influence on me!!! I purchased a 10 gal empty tank yesterday to start a planted tank. Just have to figure out what to put on the bottom - sand or gravel or dirt.

Anyway, aquarist48, I love your house and porch!!! I would love to close in our deck!

thanks for sharing everyone!
