At least you can have some in the house. Lol.
Zero tolerance at my end - all must be outside hence very difficult to maintain plants.

indjo I know that feeling, up until we bought this house 2 months we lived in an apartment own by my sister in law. There was an accident with my 75 gallon tank and I was told nothing more than a 5.5 gallon tank would remain. So when we bought the house I told my wife it's my house and I will have tanks. she agreed to having some upstairs but if I wanted larger tanks I would have to have them in the basement. I gladly accepted that offer. She has never seen the basement. I have 5 very large rooms to play in. I will fill every room. LOL

You're lucky. Wish I had that much space to play with.

The space came with the house. The people who owned it before us decided to just walk away and leave the bank take it back. We got it in foreclosure for less then the bank had listed it for and we were able to take some of our savings and pay cash. I really didn't know how much space I had in the house until the day we started to move in. My hobby and passion have been fulfilled. I'm trying to find a way to combine both and start a business. There are no pet shops or fish stores within 60 miles of the house and there are so many small towns close by that might be able to support it. It may take a few years yet to do but that's the plan.

Turning hobbies into a business, that would be a dream come true.

I wouldn't want to live there. I can't live without pets; whether fish, birds, or mammals.

It has was a hard 4 years in the old apartment. We were allowed to have our two cats with no problem. I was also allowed to keep the tanks I already had 2 5.5 gal a 29 gal. and the 75 gal. but that was until the accident my grand daughter had when she accidentally smashed the front glass on the 75 gal. I was told no more tanks over 5.5 gal. and all the rest had to go. So I was able to keep my three betta but no others. Now that we own our house and it is our's out right. I can have as many tanks as I want. (but I would need to keep all large tanks in the basement.) I don't see any problem with that. LOL I've been setting up the tanks I had purchased after the accident and I've been filling them with betta. I just purchased 3 40 gal. breeder tanks from Petco on their $1.00 per gal. sale. and I also just may go back before the sale ends and purchase a 75 gal. at 50% off. My wife calls it sweet revenge. LOL I say YOU BET.
