Can't find the decorator crab in the first pic. It must blend in really good!

Love the loaches! Never see enough of those little clown ones. I used to have a couple.

Love the Angelfish too! Had some lay eggs once but one of the fish ate them all. :sad:

All very beautiful pics!

I think I liked the featherdusters and the pink fluffy one best :D

We were looking at an aquarium to put some African siclets in, but the size that would look the best was a bit on the heavy side money wise right now, so we'll wait. The place is all chosen for it though ;) one day ... !

The pics from the pink corals on down are freshwater.

My saltwater tanks did eat a lot of money but they're also the easiest to maintain. You can generally set up saltwater tanks to be a lot more self reliant than a freshwater if you put enough money and thought into it.

lol, he's the big ball of algae below the moray. Kind of insulting actually. We didn't think the algae on that tank was that bad:rolleyes:

hehe, that comment reminds me of my husband. He doesn't like learning scientific names so he just calls all my corals "Those -insert color here- squishy things."

Thanks for all your comments guys :D

Not sure of the number right now. It goes up and down as we combine and seperate fish or buy new tanks. I've been trying to get rid of my smaller tanks because I hate maintaining anything under a 40g at this point, so a lot of compatable fish that were in seperate smaller tanks (mostly 29g) got moved into bigger tanks with each other. We were up to 15 at one point with a bunch of 10 and 29g, but I hated having little tanks everywhere. It's the way this house is layed out, it makes it look badly cluttered. Plus some of the ones that were in other rooms weren't getting enough maintenance since we rarely went in those rooms and I wanted to get most every tank in a room where we went a lot and would give them a ton of attention.

Lets see:
(2)10g, (1)29g, (1)55g, (1)65g, (1)75g, (2)90g, (2)125g

So, looks like I'm down to 10 now, lol. I have one more but it's really just for copepods and stuff to use as feeders. The 55g is for the turtles temporarily so I dunno where that's gonna go when we move them.

I'm thinking about moving a cabinet to another room (it's ugly anyway) and clearing some room to take the 75g and put a 125g instead. I'll have to get a 300g+ sometime in the near future too because my arowana won't last much longer in his 125g, then that tank will just be a sump.
We also wanna do a 300g+ semi-reef tank eventually but that will be pretty far off since we'll have to slowly buy all the equipment as we find good deals on it.
