I have six 6.5 gallon and 6 5 gallon.  I don't use the 5 gallon ones anymore for the most part.

I have 8 carboys-- all 3 gallon Better Bottles.  I brew half recipes, can't lift a full glass 5 gallon carboy, and I like a variety of beer around.

3 6.5 gallon ones for primary fermentation when the conical is tied up.
3 6 gallon ones for dry hopping with irrational exuberance.
8 5 gallon carboys for 'normal' dry hopping, aging, ciders and meads.
2 2.5 gallon ones for cider and mead.

I know people with more than that.

1 six gallon, 2 five gallon and 2 three gallon. And a bunch of buckets, too.
It's such a fine line between stupid and clever.
