Utopia: how many tanks?

Just to see how wild would you guys go regarding the number of tanks if there were no constraints.
If money and spare time werent in play how many tanks would you guys have?

I have only 1 community tank, but I would like to have:
1) 60g Discus tank
2) 60g Angelfish tank
3) 30 gallon Tiger Barb tank
4) 20 gallon Neon tank
5) 55 gallon Cichlid tank
6) 55 gallon tank for a Red Devil
7) 10 gallon for a Dwarf Puffer
8) 10 gallon red cherry shrimp tank with some guppies.

That will make a total of 9.

What about you?

p.s. I know that this question is a bit irrelevant for BB lol

I think instead of several small(er) tanks, I would have one HUGE one that was the complete inside of my house! the walls would just be one huuuuuge fish tank!! =D

back into reality tho, I think I would have one big divided betta tank, like 20-30 gallons (probly costom made so its only about 8-12 inches tall), and 50-or-so gallon GouramI tank. that's just for now tho. its very likely to change (and in the near future >.<)

I have around 20 tanks but I only have room for half of them, and I have even less of them set up.

eventually I want to have an entire room dedicated to aquaria, so however many will fit in that future room with enough room to walk around.

That would be awesome!!!!!!! Could you even start to think about cleaning it? But I guess in this fantasy world money is not an issue, so we could pay someone to clean it for us.

I picked 6-9. There are things I want that are species-only, like tiger barbs and dwarf puffers. And I would love a wall that was a reef (maintained by someone else who knew what they were going). A community tank, a betta, and one with colorful cichlids.. That's 6. I'd like a BGK too.

If I could I would have literally hundreds of tanks... in a huge barn everything from 5 gallons to 2000 gallons... and the barn would be totally set up and decorated for it and I would charge people 3 dollars a piece to come in

Because I would like to still have the time available to just sit and enjoy my zen moments observing the tanks, and not just working on tanks constantly, I would have no more than 5 tanks. Can't say what species I'd have for sure, but I'd like to venture into a saltwater tank eventually, and I would definitely have my BPs and my kribs and loaches. And I'd have them set up in my home so that each one was the centerpiece of the room it was set up in. None of that "5 tanks to a room" stuff.

Oh, and I'd have a little cabinet in the corner of each room with a complete python hookup, drainage, etc. so everything would be self contained. arty0049:

Can I have just a house under a river or in the ocean? That would be ultimate.

I'd like to basically live in like, a public aquarium . Brackish (with monos, archers, etc), mbu puffer tank, new world cichlid tanks, planted with angels and neons, saltwater rays, a salt trigger, dogface puffer, and eel tank, etc etc. A little bit of everything.
