    Long story short, I could fill like 20 tanks right now with the number of ideasi have, but I lack the funds to do so. How you guys deal with mts?
    I wanna do so many things but my parents will kill me if I get more tanks. Right now I have a colony of heterandria formosa, but I wanna get my live food tank going, a paradise fish tank, a Spanish ribbed newt, African clawed frog, rice fish, sparkling gourami, nano natives like elassoma and leptolucania ommata, a pea puffer, central mudminnows, and so much more, and the problem is mostll fit in 10s, and those tanks are like potato chips to me...easy to get a bunch set up.

    My mom keeps my mts under control she is only allowing me to have my main tank and a quarantine tank and possibly another next year.

    I think to my self, I’ll have all the tanks I want once I have my own place I can wait. I’m going to move out in a couple years. So no point in spending money on something you will only enjoy for a little while

    yep. my situation exactly.
    i really want a bigger tank someday, when i move out :)

    That's worse yet for me. I'll spend my money on fish not bills or savings lol.

    Best thing to do is practice your carpentry skills, and build a multi-tiered rack system.

    But first go over to Petco and get some more $1/gallon tanks since they went on sales again .

    Organization, efficient use of space and ease of maintenance are key factors when forming an MTS action plan.....

    Or were you asking to help curb MTS.....

    I don't think your helping his parents out but good idea.
  8. Donovan JonesValued MemberMember

    Yeah that is a good idea, but not when I need to stop buying tanks lol. I have 2 tens, a 20 high, and a 2.5, but only a 10 and 20 up and running cuz I'm out of plugs lol. If I add anymore my mom gonna get a meter and bill me
