    I have 3 aquariums and I always feel like I am behind on one of them at any one point. It feels like overload. I think 2 at most would be best for me. What do you have going on?

    I only have one, but wish I had more. Some day I will add another. My plan is to put them in series. That is, have them share the same sump.

    I have two - 65gal. that I love. One is a reef tank the other is a fish tank, which was originally set up to house my Lionfish because I could not control the Phos when he was in my reef tank. What a beautiful hobby.

    I have 2 and feel the same way Matt. I always have something I need to procrastinate about :)

    I have one 90 gallon and one 2.5 gallon nano. I also had a 55 gallon at one time but 3 tanks was just too much and I broke it down and sold it last year. :)

    I have just the one tank now. Having too much fun setting it up. ;D New for Christmas 2004. I would like another, but the TIME!!! By the time I finally get a sump & fuge setup, it will probably feel like 3. May put a small nano on my desk at work just to have something to look at there.

    I did not count the vase I just set up at my work with the betta!
