When we sold the big house I had to sell all my fish and tanks, I was just starting with them too! Its an addiction! I had three 55 gals and a bunch of smaller 30 gals and then I had turtles and goldfish anddddddd now I have a dumb little tank that the LED light dont work and I cant replace it because it costs money and too much of it!! I keep thinking the fish will croak but they carry on! I think once you go big you cant enjoy a tiny tank, I dont at all. its like pffffst he he he
Same here. We actually went from a small house to a bigger house though. But in our case the smaller house was a row home in Mahanoy City. (the toilet bowl of Schuylkill County)
Because it was a row home though there was probably 80ft of straight uninterrupted wall space down both sides of the living/dining room area. And the fact that the cracker boxes are only 12 ft wide supported by solid stone foundations meant that there was plenty of support for even the biggest of aquariums.
At one time I had my current 120 gallon, 3 40 gallon breeders I'd gotten from a friend, 3 30 gallon breeders, 4 55 gallons, and assorted 10 and 20 gallons with everything and anything you can imagine in them from goldfish to guppies to angelfish to big marine angels and triggers. A 2 ft Snowflake Moray, a 15" Lunula Lionfish, and tons of cichlids from little shell dwellers to Malawi Mbuna rock reef setups.
Now I've got more room but no wall space for tanks. So I'm down to my 120 gallon with a baby Redtail Cat, an overgrown Sailfin Pleco and a Flowerhorn who's too grumpy for the Redtail to eat.
Downstairs I've got a 55 with a fat stunted Jack Dempsey, a big female Firemouth, a little P. polleni large spot, assorted LF Bristlenoses, and some other stuff all from a friend of my Cousins.
I miss all of my aquariums. But as long as DH keeps me in chickens I suppose I shall survive. ^_^
I hear ya!
you cant be that far from me!
