    4 main tanks that are mine and my husbands (180g mixed reef, 37g Anemone dominant, 125g planted goldfish, and 75g Mbuna Cichlids. 2 salt QTs are currently running and my daughter has a 2g betta tank, my son has a 29 long tank that he is currently trying to decide what he wants in it. There's a lot of water in this house, lol.

    Only 3 right now but plans to set up a 4th.

    A 55 gallon mixed reef (with sump that contains a red mitrax crab named Bruce and a refugium with 2 hermit crabs, Dexter and the crab designated as his victim that he hasn't taken out yet... )
    A 120 gallon freshwater planted tank
    A 10 gallon nano with sexy shrimp, anemone shrimp, a flaming prawn goby and 4 masked gobies. It was supposed to be a Florida Biotope (predominately gorgonians) but then someone offered me the goby and... (I don't recommend flaming prawn gobies BTW - he's very shy. Impressive when he comes out but if the tank wasn't on my desk I'd probably never see him).

    I also have a mantis shrimp who hitchhiked in and is currently in my main DT. I have a 10 gallon sitting empty waiting to be set up for her. (if I can ever catch her!). She hasn't taken out any fish but I am missing some invertebrates and I love me some invertebrates.

    And, of course, the QT tank that isn't set up right now.

    My maximum number of tanks at one time has been six. I've only been without any tanks for a 1-year time period since I was around 10.

    Problem? No, I don't have a problem.

    Well, I don't have enough space to set up another tank but other than that...

    2 currently for me.

    90 gallon reef tank at home
    10 gallon Glofish Freshwater tank for the office at work

    Just recently tore down the live rock cycling in a 32 gallon garbage can. I might use it as a make shift QT in the future.
    A few months ago tore down my 36 gallon bowfront setup to upgrade to the 90 gallon and sold it off to a former co-worker of mine
