How many tanks are in my house?

Post by Sbenson11 on Sun Nov 24, 2013 1:25 pm

Here's a trivia question for you,

How many fish tanks do i have in my house?

I'm not including the ponds outside or the turtle pond inside, just aquariums that have fish in them. This is not a trick question, but I'm willing to bet the answer will shock most of you. Shocked 

I was actually asked this question by someone at work on Friday and they still don't believe my answer.

My guess is zero. I'm betting the only tanks you have (not counting the one you are currently building) are to be found at work.

Well seeing the usual suspects have chimed in I will let the cat out of the bag.

The answer is 1 Shocked 

I have a 55gal saltwater tank, hopefully to be replaced by a 210gal sometime this winter.

So yes most of my fish are here at work. Seeing how everywhere you look around here there are fish tanks most people think I have the same at home.

No not much room for fish tanks in my house. I do hope to add a couple of more at some point.

I am in the flower business, we supply Sobeys, Wal-Mart, CO-OP, Kent, etc right across the island. We do have about 90,000 sq ft of greenhouse space but over half our business is cut flowers. We don't grow them here but we import the flowers from all over the world and make the bouquets like you see in your local food stores.

So I guess I have the space to stick a few tanks here and there Smile

Yup, for the most part. They don't all go outside, but most do.

Very nice that you can have tanks at work! How many are there? I would love to have an aquarium set up at my workplace. It would take a good amount of commitment and extra time on my end though, particularily where I'm not in the office everyday...so, for now, it is just a fun passing thought!

OK. In true Quebecois fashion, let us rephrase the question such that all can misinterpret the results and then each side can say that they have won ...

How many tanks, that are in Steve's intimate possession which are capable of holding aquatic life, such that anyone could view them, are owned by Steve Benson and his associated organisations ?

I guess ... 51

Apart from the space and mess side advantages of having most of your tanks at work, I guess it also saves you a lot on the electricity bill as companies normally have lower kWH rates, right? (Here it shows clearly that I am Dutch...Laughing)

I have been telling about your goldfish adventures at home and how you have your ponds and put them in winter time etc. and now having a pond for the (office) goldfish is on the official wish list for the next house! Thanks Steve cheers
