How many aquariums do you have?

Recommended Posts

Are we talking total number of tanks running or number of seperate systems running? In my house there is currently 13 tanks running but, they are running on 6 different systems.


Fish only system has four 28gal tanks and a 55gal.

Reef system has one 28gal tank and two 28gal frag tanks.

20L seahorse tank.

55gal seahorse tank.

5gal hex.

1gal betta bowl. My son's fish.

I'm also a big fan of 2 aquariums. One bigger aquarium for the all popular mixed reef and one smaller one for an esoteric themed reef.

2 SW - 10-gal and 75 gal, both in progress, both FOWLR


3 FW - 10-gal guppy tank, 5-gal betta tank, and 75-gal oscar tank


(I didn't include the QT tank because I don't run it all the time.)
