    How many tanks do you guys have running size and type? Is it easy to maintain multiple?

    lol. Currently!?! With livestock, 5. But 3 are temp holding tanks for fish and coral. Should consolidate down to 2, maybe even down to 1, depending on what I want to do with the btas n the Lightning Maroons.

    Edit: technically 6 since I have 2 copperbands in TTM

    I had three until last week. My main 120 gallon, a 10 gallon Nano and a 25 gallon frag tank. I took down the 10 gallon because it was actually harder to maintain than the 120 gallon. I find it easy to maintain two -- three was too much.

    120g at work, 2.5g betta tank at home. Wanting a salt tank at home, but probably too much work with all the reef stuff at work.

    40g and 10g mixed reefs. Not hard to maintain at all, but the 10g has some algae, kind of tough to keep that tank perfect. Might just make it an all Xenia or all softy tank

    3 tanks currently running

    24 Gallon Nanocube Reef
    20 Gallon Long Planted tank
    7.5 Gallon Planted Shrimp tank which is currently cycling

    Hopefully in the future I can set up larger tanks, but these sizes are plenty for me to work with for now :)
