Don't you just hate stupid mistakes?

Well I was going to dose a couple capfuls of DT's phyto in the tank today. Well I went looking in the fridge for it and couldn't find it. I initially thought one of the employees threw it away so I was getting pretty darn hot.

Then I discovered it under the aquarium in the cabinet. I guess when I came in Saturday morning I didn't realize I stored it away with my food in my haste to hurry out...

So its been in there since Saturday morning. That is 72 hours of non-refrigeration. I read somewhere that it "should" be good for about 7 days uncooled before totally being worthless as far as nutrition goes. I did smell the stuff and its odor was stronger than what I remember.

Stupid accident I guess... GRRRR......

I think we all do things like that from time to time. It's hard to keep up with everything...we're all so busy.

Yeah, I agree Logan. Just had to vent somewhere where people would actually understand... The employees are pretty much clueless to what I do everyday. The only thing they really know is that I somehow end up wet everyday.

Hence the need to come here...

It's my stupid self that has failed to put my cyclop-eeze back in the freezer (TWICE). Time to switch to the dry as I can make a liar out of anything that claims to be fool-proof.

I left a bottle of DT's in my car overnight but the temp only got up to around 40 so I figured it still was safe. Stuff happens like this when we have so much to worry about and check on
