Location Location Location!

so as the title states; LOCATION!

Where are your babies located???

When i lived with my Ex i had all my fish in the spare room, it was called fish/pc/rc room. on a large stand.

at the next living i had them in the lounge room of that ex's moms

then at my mates where i stayed a while on the stand beside my bed

at my current partners last place (where he was boarding) i was down to one tank, it was on a cupboard shelf (was never closed anyway)

we recently (three weeks ago) moved into our own house, i just set up in kitchen as a "ill move them when i set up a space"

my 5gal tanks STILL on the bench and likely to stay there ^_^

then came one and then another then another then one came back from being babysat and then i couldnt live without THAT one or THAT one lol
so i set up my 6 bay again. AGAIN i set it up as a temp location, but likely to become perment cause i just love nothing more then sitting at the dining table and watching two foot 6 bay tank all with males in it lol

what about you?

I just moved all of my tanks to my living room...they were in my bedroom, but it's finally starting to cool down at night here, and I like it chilly in my room, so I moved them all into one room to make it easier to keep them warm.

I have 2 tanks in my kitchen, on the counters (hooray for lots of counter space!), 2 in the living room (one on a bookshelf and one on the tv cabinet), and 3 in my bedroom (one on my nightstand, one on my dresser, and one on my bureau).

The only cure for ignorance is education, and bullying or attacking someone is no way to educate them.

Wow I love hearing where everyone puts their tanks! I always wanted a tank in the kitchen. :) I currently have my 2.5 gal tank on my night stand so my Raz can see me. I study a lot in my room so I thought it would be good to have him near by. It is also a good temp in my room especially with fall/winter approaching. I have a 10 gal tank that I'm going to start cycling very soon *hopefully* this weekend. I'm still thinking where is the best place for that. I have an open space on my Ikea shelving unit so maybe there.

Both my 10 gallon divided and my 15 gallon sorority (still in set up process) are in the living room. When I lived with my parents, I had a 1.5 gallon on my desk, right next to my bed.

We have 4 tanks in our living room (3 are small and contained in a bookshelf) and one in the kitchen. We will be setting our 55g up in the dining room :)

I just graduated from college with two friends, so we're in a smallish apartment but we managed to score huge bedrooms - so my fish room is my bedroom XD I do have 2 tanks in the living room, but didn't want to overwhelm the whole apartment with fish. So right now here's what's set up in my room:

20 gal long planted tank
14 gal sorority tank
5 gal single tank x3
3 gal single tank x2
10 gal spawning tank
And a few experimental NPT's that I started setting up last night

I have a lot more tanks that are decommissioned right now because my baby girls were finally old enough to add to my sorority last week :)

I just ordered a nice 4 tiered wire shelf so I can stack my tanks and have more room.

I only have one and its a 5 gallon and it sits on my dinning room table where I also keep my laptop and where I sit to do everything like crafts and drawing. I love it sitting where it is so I can sit here while I work and watch him at the same time, nothing better I like to do than that !
