Mutli Tank Syndrome. Once it grabs hold on you, it's hard to NOT buy more.

I find that a lack of space, money and the opposite of support regarding this matter from teh BF manages to keep MTS under control quite well for me hahaha. But just wait until I graduate, get a job and move out... MWAHAHAHAH!

SO that's what I have! Multi Tank Syndrome. So nice to have a name for it... Now I'm off to go look at the tank I've been drooling over...

Perhaps it'd be better for me if I didn't have support from the BF on this matter. As it is, the only thing keeping MTS under control for me is a lack of space, and my grandmother, who is starting to say "Well, it would be nice to have a tank with only plants in the lounge room..." hahaha!

I'm waiting on plants for my tanks! I've ordered some duck weed, water lettuce, moss balls, and dwarf hairgrass and I recently planted some water wisteria and Chinese ivy (which smells wonderful) in my 10G. I'll be ordering some java fern in the near future, but I want to focus on the plants I have/the plants I'm getting for now.

I'll post a picture of my newly planted 10G soon but it looks sparse because the plants aren't rooted and were just acclimated. c:

Okay, this might be a mighty stupid question, but what exactly is driftwood and where can I buy it? How long do you have to soak it to get the tannins out?

I just got my plants today: Anubias barteria, java fern, jungle vals, java moss, water sprite and hornwort (I'm also pretty sure some duckweed hitched a ride... I wasn't going to get it because I heard it's a mess, but hey, I guess if it's real good at taking care of ammonia, I can't complain... especially since it was free). They all look great except for maybe the jungle val....... I can't believe how perfect the anubias looks. It could be a plastic plant. And java moss is like, one of the neatest things I have ever seen/felt in my life. Excuse my excitement, I have never touched live plants before, nor have I seen many different types :p

I have some plastic craft mesh that I'm probably going to tie the java moss to. I'm also getting lights next week, one for my four gallon tank and one for my spare lamp, lol.

Well my driftwood soaked in a bucket for a week. I changed the water 100% every morning. I got mine from PetsMart, Mopani Wood. Do not get their Grapewood. I researched it and alot of people were having fish dying when using it.
