    13 fresh
    3 neocaridina tanks - blue, red, yellow
    1 scarlet badis tank
    3 betta tanks
    1 pea puffer tank
    1 blackworm tank
    1 community w/ angels, loach, tetra
    1 oscar tank w/ complimentary firemouth
    2 rasbora tanks green kubotai & chili

    2 salt
    30 jbj aio mixed reef
    20 long mixed reef

    This year I plan to break down the 40b and 29g. Either drilling the 40b and using the 29g for sump with room for an ato beside the sump.. Or buying another 40b(without a center brace) and and use the og 40b(with a center brace) as its sump and then upgrade the 20 salt to the 29 and use the ob 20 as its sump.

    Currently we have 4 going.

    150 mixed reef (on day 36 being fallow)
    20 IM fusion (just converted it to quarantine)
    14 IM peninsula (daughter’s zoa collection with sexy shrimp and clown goby)
    8 gal nano (just converted it to qt for my scooters to wait for dt)

    Oh, and a 30 gal brute bin on last day of ttm, then fish move into qt aquariums.

    (Picking up some unwanted/used IMs from kids’ school today....oh boy!!! The possibilities!!!)

    I had 3 (2 on one system) at one time and it turned out to be overwhelming. Every bit of maintenance I did had to be done 2 times..... clean two protein skimmers, measurements twice, two cal reactors to refill, two c02 cylinders to refill, two glass cleanings, and so on. I am SO relieved now to focus on one tank and do it well. Also, I now only make RO water once every two weeks which is awesome!
