How many outlets?

How many outlets do your tanks use? I have used 7 for my 2 10 gal tanks. (2 filters, 2 heaters, 2 lights, 1 air pump)

5 gallon
One betta
10 gallon
Two bettas, divided
Three mystery snails
20 gallon
Seven female bettas
Four oto cats
Five juvenile female guppies
One goldfish (temporary)
29 gallon
One dwarf gourami
Six tiger barbs

27 fish....

Easily over a dozen for 5 tanks.

Everything happens for a reason, but the reason isn't always good.

I have surge protected power strips on my tank equipment, or I would not have enough outlets in the house.

125 - cichlids (severums, bolivian rams, chocolate), rainbows ( turquoise, red), loaches (angelicus, zebra, kuhli and horseface), plecos (BN, RL and clown), denison barbs, tiretrack eel, pearl gouramis, betta
90 - Congo tetras, african knife, upside down cats, spotted ctenopoma, kribensis, delhezzi bichir

Wait are we talking just outlets or powerstrips too?

I use 3. One for my heater, filter, and light. The filter was supposed to come with the light and the tank, but along the way, the pump decided to bail and I had to go buy a new one.
