as mts seems quite widespread and it seems the only thing that keeps it from getting out of control is your wallet and space I was just wondering if these werent an issue, would you get another tank? tan

get a 7 foot one 5 foot wide, put a matress on it and there you go.....a tank bed! think of the fish that could fit in there!

if I had unlimited space and money, i'd go buy all of dino's tanks off him. so maybe my answer should've been no.. I couldn't stop at just 1.. or 2.. or 3.. or 4...

What kind of goofy question is that!? OF COURSE I would! In fact...I am working on a 3rd tank right now and I don't have either the money OR the space! ;D

Why would you only get one if you have endless amounts of cash? Why not 5-10 1000gallon tanks?

With endless money, I would build the house around the tanks. Design transit systems that snaked all through the house so the fish could travel everywhere. Entire walls that were tanks and best of all, the ceiling of the master bedroom would be a giant fishtank. And of course a crew of people to clean everything for me ;D.

Yea, that crew of fish attendants would be necessary.. i'd build the house so that every part of it had that transit system at eye level along with a 2nd level consisting of various size tanks above it. There would also be several 'fish rooms' where every wall of the room was a big aquarium. The house would be designed with behind the tanks accessways for the fish crew to work on the tanks.. there'd also be a covered 'pools porch' with a bunch of swimming pools for pond fish like koi and plecos.

Now its 2 no's. I couldn't believe it. If I had all the money and space. I totally would get more tanks. Plans are in the works for a new tank but it will be some time gotta save for the computer (husband's deal first computer, then new tank, then new sword for him) gotta make my deals where I can get them I guess. am also limited because the apt managers are picky about how big I can go before massive deposit time :-\ Ah well such is the life, and how I love it ;D

I just got a 29 gal fish tank two months ago. I can't believe how much fun my fish are and have since set up a 5 gal for baby platy and have acquired a 20 gal and 10 gal that I am anxious to get up and running. I think I may be addicted ;D!!!

yes.. I think it's safe to say that Joy44 is another happy victI'm of MTS!

hahah... love all the responses. ;D
My MTS started with a thrift store 10 gallon set up for 5 dollars, when I decided it was too small to set up I went and bought a 29 gallon set up at a LFS. From there, another tank, a 2.5 seaclear with set up for 5 dollars (thrift store find). Then I used the original 10 gallon set up for two bettas. The 2.5 for one female betta, and the 29 gallon is my community tank. Saturday was a good day for yardsales, only after I found a 10 gallon and set up for 10 bucks. Now I need the filter media and will start to cycle that tank as soon as I find a place for it. Am I through yet? nooooo way!! hahaha...

I voted no.

I have one tank, and I love it so much.  I love watching my fish and taking care of them.  However, I have a lot of other interests in my life as well, and I wouldn't want to get more tanks than I could handle. It's not fair to the fish.

but you could have the money to hire a service to do the work and just enjoy the fish with unlimited money & space.

But then if I had strange people in my house, my dogs would bark and cause trouble the whole time, and it would just be annoying.

Besides, speaking of the dogs...I think they're already jealous enough of the one tank, I can't imagine if there were more. :

lol!! you'd have to sneek the tank and fish in when the dogs aren't looking and put them in a room where the dogs don't go!! top secret!!

Sometimes, when I go to feed the fish, my yellow lab lays down in front of the tank stand...which blocks the doors to the cabinet that has the fish food. I think she's jealous because I feed them first.

The back of my cabinet is open to allow for hoses, wires etc...I keep the food in a box with a lid....Well, my two ferrets love to get into the cabinet...The other day I went looking for the algae wafers.....Nowhere in the cabinet to be found....Well, I got to thinking about where they hide everything else....And lo and behold, there they were, right under the sofa where they love to hide their toys, any toy of my son's that they can carry, a sock, the cat's toys and a stash of their food!!!

It's actually pretty funny to watch them try to carry a slipper across the room and try to drag it under the sofa!! They say that ferrets take things from those they favor....I guess the cat, my son and the fish are OK in their book!!

I have over 130 aquaria set up, another 70 sitting in my yard without water and a dozen or so not set up, that are stored at my house.

In the past 3 weeks I have moved a 1000 gallon pond to my property and am moving a 2000 gallon pond here next Monday.

I sure am glad I have control of the hobby and not the other way around.

Any of those 70 that you feel are just taking up space... feel free to store them at my house!
