How many tanks do you have?
« on: December 31, 2010, 06:41:34 PM »

I'm not sure if this was posted anywhere, but I'm curious to find out how many tanks you all have and what's living in them. 

I have a 60 gallon with 1 fantail, 1 Red Ryukin and 1 Sakura Red/White Ryukin (who looks just like my avatar)

I also have a 5 gallon (totally cycled! Hip Hip Hooray) with 8 Neon Tetras, 6 GloFish and 3 Peppered Cory Cats. It may seem alike a lot of fish in the tank, but they all really have a ton of room to swim around in (they're all very small, under 1 inch). I am going to be getting another tank to move the GloFish into and maybe get a few more types of Dannios.

and a 10 gallon QT/Hospital Tank

I have a 10 gallon glass bottom with a few glass pebbles and decoration as my quarantine tank and a Marineland 27 gallon cube that will eventually be the home of the little wee in the 10 gallon Wink I hope to have it up and running again within a month.

LOL! Teetsy!!  Thank you at least I'm grand Mistress of something! Wink Cheesy
well, let's see I have 2 tanks in the living room...the 55 gallon and the 29 gallon.
The 75 gallon is in the basement as well the 90 gallon when I get it.
In my office I have the 10 gallon with the eggfish and the 30 gallon with the ryukins and the 15 gallon.
The baby fry in the dishpan are in the basement.
I have 2 betta bowls in the kitchen, one in the hallway and one in my office hanging in the book shelf until xmas decorations are put away, then he hangs in the living room unless we get company then I put him in one of the  guest rooms for good luck! Smiley

I strive to be like you. I was always afraid of becoming one of those crazy cat ladies and I vowed I would become a crazy fish lady. I think you've already beaten most of us there. LOL  Grin (I say this with much love) I'm afraid if I put a tank in my office (which I rarely go in there anymore, since my laptop is hanging out with me in the living room, that I'll forget the fish are there. I want all of my tanks around me, so I can look at all my fish while I'm hanging out on the couch.

You mentioned your betas are hanging. Do   you have them in those tanks that hang on the wall? I always wondered  how do  you change the water with those? I know Betas are easy to take care of, but I've killed too many in my day, that I'm afraid to get them. I really like those hanging things and thought it would be really neat to have a few of them on my  walls.

No, the bettas are in betta bowls just  sitting around.
I've never had one of these hanging betta things.
They look small.
I like to keep my bettas in at least a galon of water or so. Smiley

One 22 litre tank which currently has the common but will be moving out very soon, then having a male betta in there Smiley

It's enough for me Smiley For now  Wink

I have 75 gallon, three 55 gallons and 1 is empty, 20 gallon, two 10 gallon, and my stepdaughter's 14 gallon. Smiley
All my tanks are full of gazillion  goldfish. One of these days my Orandas, Fantails, and Black Moors will be in a 2,000 gallon pond.  That's one of my big plan this year. Wink

Lol, I have two and a half tank Grin

317 L (83 gal) with all my goldies: 4 fantails, an oranda, pom pom, two moors, two pearl scales and a gibbiceps (kind of like a pleco) Smiley'
30 L (8 gal) with my fighting fish, Bruce Willis (I'll buy him a 15 L baby biorb later)
and  the half tank is a 100 L community tank we keep at my parents' place (Meaning that I usually refer to it as my mom's Wink) containing two big, fat fantails (a red one and a tancho), a three-spot gourami, three mollies, two albino corys and three bristlenoses.

I've been drooling over a 500L second hand setup online that's incredibly cheap Wink Intend to move my gibbiceps there, since he'll grow to be 50cm long, and stock it with some Oscars Smiley
Also looking forward to a juicy 200-250L to stock with more goldies Wink

We have one 60 gallon with Spot, Stripe, Sunshine, and Izzy (comets and shubunkins), and a 38 gallon sitting empty (we moved them to a bigger home).  My husband wants to set up the smaller tank for an oranda or two (and, truth be told, so do I), but I don't think we'll have time for two tanks until the baby is a bit older.  It's a pity- the pet store had a chocolate and blue oranda for sale a few weeks ago, and lots of lovely redcaps as well.
If I had the money and time, I would love a whole room of tanks and little "fish highways" of tubes connecting them.  I'd decorate each tank in a different theme, too.  Fun!!

Wow I am astounded! Wouldn't it be awesome to have a tank large enough that you could dive in to decorate and clean and swim with the fishies  Grin they would give great kisses and try to help with the chores I bet! They'd probably also uproot as many plants as you could place, would be a funny frustrating game though  Wink

I'd be worried about introducing some dirt/harmful chemicals into the tank. And I'm pretty sure it would be a horrible pain to maintain something like that! xD

By the way, yesterday we tried to connect two hoses so that we could drain the water out of the tank directly into the bathroom, but... it was tight >> I could barely reach to clean the whole bottom, so I think I'll stick to the buckets until I'll get a proper siphon with pump Tongue

Oh Nossie,
You would really enjoy your tanks so much more if you didn't have to haul buckets! Wink
I hope you will be able to get a water changer soon! Smiley
They are so so nice!! You will love it! Smiley

My big investments for them fish will be that water changer, an aluminum stand for the tank (just for safety) and a 15L biorb for Bruce! Cheesy
One question though, how do you fill the water back in the tank? Directly from the tap, there won't be any water conditioner! :C

I just add the water conditioner directly to the tank before I add water or begin filling.
Add it as you are filling the tank.  You can rest the changer head under the rim of the tank and then add your condtioners while it is filling.
That's what I do anyway.  There is a switch right on the head of the changer so you can turn the water on/off instantly!
It's very easy to use! Smiley
