Cool Just curious

Does it mean that you have too many tanks when you no longer have to turn the lights on in a room because the tanks give off enough light to see by?

Oh, well, then, I am doing fine! I suppose this means I can go ahead and buy that new tank I've been wanting...

Is there such a thing as too many tanks? According to my wife, yes, but I keep disagreeing with her (for all the good it does me) LOL

I'm beginning to think there is no such thing as too many tanks.... Besides, the lighting the tanks provide is soooo much nicer than a harsh overhead light.

If that were the case, then my 8 gallon tank would be too much. It's light is bright enough to light up the small room in my apartment and spill out into the hallway a bit. Forget about my 2 5 gallon tanks that are side by side. I can nearly read a book by the light they give off. XD

Mine put out that much light, but they also put out humigity which with the dry winters we get around here has been a life saver XP
