Hopeless case of MTS

    Hi all,
    Just wanted to introduce myself. I've been keeping fish off and on for 25 years. Started with horribly mismatched and overstocked community tanks in the 1990s. Jack Dempseys and neon tetras some angels... What was I thinking?!

    So I learned... And the in the 2000s marriage to a goldfish keeper resulted in 4 tanks of ranchu, oranda, ryukins, and moors. A house fire claimed the lives of all the fish in 2007 and I swore I was Not Doing This Again!

    Well that lasted all of 3 years... it started with we'll just get one 75g with 2 orandas. Then a trip to the lfs resulted in another 75g and 2 calico ryukins cause, and I quote the SO, "they were too pretty".

    After that there came a 10g on the kitchen counter to grow plants for the monsters, I mean goldfish to snack on. I guess just plants was boring so somehow a bunch of shrimp appeared in there. At this time no one is claiming responsibility for the shrimps arrival.

    Well who knew shrimp are kinda cool... This led to 2 more 15g shrimp tanks, malawa and wild bees. The 10g became home to a betta. ( he was "pretty" too)

    Now it's getting kinda cluttered here so next is a rack to put the small tanks on. What do you know!? We can fit more tanks on there! In come 4 more 15gs with badis badis, peacock gudgeon, and innederre killifish, a 30b for a f8 puffer and his own snail growing tank. The last 15g is reserved for some GBRs which should be arriving tomorrow.

    Last weekend my sister also decided to finally stop her kids from torturing fish, and gave me her 29g and last surviving bn pleco. CPDs will be going in there.

    And someone I work with just offered me another 30g... I'm hopeless with MTS but happy... And kinda pruney
