Help! I think I'm addicted now and Just Found 2 More Tanks...

I got my first betta a couple weeks ago, a little girl named Zira. She is awesome!!!! I have her in a 2.5 gallon with 2 ghost shrimp as friends and they all get along great and are really fun to watch. I had to go get a whole new set up since my mom gave away my goldfish's old 10 gallon. Just as I'm thinking about getting another fish, she tells me, "oh, by the way, I found a couple other old aquariums that we had the fish in before, they are in the shed.".... Went and looked, a 5 gallon and another 2.5!!!!

How do I stop the addiction? Is it something that can be stopped with one fish or am I in trouble??? Thinking of getting a nice male and setting up the 5 gallon for him... IDK what to do with the tank, any and all suggestions appreciated!!!!!

(Also found all old gravel- enough for both tanks, and a couple plants, all I need are filters and heaters. And a lid for a 5 gallon, if anyone has any suggestions that would be great!)

I totally get what your feeling... I started with one and ended up with 3 more .. lol!

I used to have a 20/30gl tank that I gave away last year! so I had to start over with new tanks.. so I'm up to 2 5gl glass tanks, a 1.5gl glass for my tiny one till he gets bigger, and a 3gl critter keeper which I find really easy to clean so I might get a couple more.

you also could divide the 5gl if you end up getting "more" fish.
