    I always told my wife that in a few years, when we retire to a smaller house (and in theory I have more time..) I will likely get a second tank, third tank, ..

    Then this past weekend we saw a 10 gallon at a yard sale for a few dollars. My wife suggested I get it to give our baby livebearers a place to get larger outside the main tank. It's now in my basement. So technically, it's her fault!! :)

    I'm Ben, I'm afraid I may have MTS.

    I have a 75g and a 20g, and a 44g that is currently empty and needs repair to the seals. I also need to stay off Craigslist or there will be something else showing up.

    I'm Tyler.

    Growing up, we had a fish tank for a while. After years of living on my own (away from my parents, not really alone), I finally got a 29 gallon tank on my birthday in February. Since then I have added a 7.5 gallon tank for shrimp. I have a 10, 55 and 125 (with stand) all waiting in the wings (the 55 and 125 with stand/canopy cost me a total of $120 and both need a reseal). I also need to stay off craigslist, else my wife may be in the market for a divorce lawyer.

    I wish I had a house made of glass. Aquariums on every wall, ceiling and floor. Use rain water for water changes. Wow what a dream
