hI again, not sure where to put this, and it is just for my curiosity.

to the folks that have 5,6,7,+ tanks. do you have a room dedicated to tanks? do you spread them througout the house? just a nosy question as I see my self having a nasty case of MTS soon.

Welcome to Fishlore!

Nope, I don't have a room dedicated to tanks. I have a house dedicated to tanks There are tanks in every room in the house except for the bathrooms, hallways, and my daughter's room.

HI Matt
My tanks are in what used to be called a living room. My husband says it looks like a fish store with a tv.
It's spilled over to my dining room a few months ago ;D

Mine are basically everywhere. I might be moving (again) in a few weeks since my brother will be moving up to the city with me for UnI so I'll probably have to try and squeeze all but the big tanks back into my bedroom again but we'll see

There's one tank in the living room, one in the kitchen(although my mom has drawn the line at 1, and the stipulation for getting more tanks/fish is that they stay OUT of her kitchen!, and one in my bedroom. I personally kinda like having them all through the house, because then you can watch them while you are doing stuff, like I can watch the one in the kitchen while doing the dishes. I think they get looked at more than if they were all in one room, but I'm not an expert on that, having never had a fish room.

I have a 40gal community tank in the living room, for all to see (including visitors) and then I have my fishroom (former home office) where I keep 11 tanks at the moment (from 4 gal to 145gal).

I've "only" got 3.5 tanks (the 0.5 tank being the quarantine tank, since it's not up all the time), but they're spread out throughout the house. Two in the living room, one in the kitchen and the QT in the mud room. If I were allowed to get more, they'd be spread out throughout the house since we don't have one room we could turn into a fish room. We also live in a small house with small rooms so I'd have to get creative.

I've only 3 tanks at the moment, 90g, 75g, 40g, but before I injured my hand I had 8, all in the living room. Trying to do waterchanges and maintenence on 8 tanks with one hand was too much work so I sold 5 of them. But I'm currently in the process of "restocking" my lounge with tanks, these ones I'm going to build myself though!

Hi, I only have 2 tanks... I live in a big house that is crammed with stuff all the time...

Therefore, anywhwere you can put a tank it goes there...

We were re-doing my room in January, so I decided to make my 10G opposite my bed Lets just say I made some room!

My (its really my mums, but I do the maintenace, she admires) other tank, 7.5G cube is in the dining room opposite the dinner table

Good morning,

I had my screen porch enclosed last year and made it my fish room. (Thanks Fishlorians!) 190 square feet. 265g, 29g, 26g, 6.6g, (and a pond outside). Doh! Is that something up my sleeve?

that's some amazing tank listings. its funny how it starts out. I just wanted to get something small(thinking 10g) and simple for my son since we had to get rid of his rabbits(I am allergic and they gave him a rash). next thing I know I find an awesome deal on craigslist for a 46g tank and stand, and I still want bigger. I see these 125+ setups at the stores and I am in love. thanks for some ideas on placements though, you are awesome as always.

I have a 10 gallon in the bedroom, 2.5 in the bathroom (it doesn't have a heater and that is the warmest, most stable temp room in my appartment) and a 55 gallon on the living room. I'm also trying g to decide where to keep my 5 gallon once I details idea what is going in it.
