10g Nightmare

I have a 10g tank with mostly ember tetras and a betta. Today, I went in to feed my fish and I realized they were all gone. Apparently, my friend thought my tank had too many boring, red fish, so without telling me they went to the store and traded in my fish for new ones. Once I got over the initial shock, I looked closely at what was in there. They bought me a 8 inch common pleco, a CAE, and a big school of tinfoil barbs! In a 10g tank! They were all big fish too, not just little babies! What a nightmare! Then, I woke up and realized it was literally a bad dream and I laughed at myself for having fish on the brain a little too much. But, I couldn't help myself, so I went and looked at my fish just to make sure and they were all fine.

Ahahahaha that's pretty funny

I once had a dream like that too. Except differently. I was in my tank, and my angel was about to eat me...

The wierdest fish type dream I've had was pages of the forum scrolling non stop forever. It was terrible. I woke up and my eyes hurt. Like I was actually reading.

I had a dream where I had a 55 gallon that I put salt and freshwater fish in... It didn't end well for most of the fish...

That would be so stressful! I'd have to check my tank immediately, too! I've had several dreams where my fish swim out of the tank and around the room, and I'm trying to catch them all and put them back.

Yeah, I have dreamed thing like that too. The fish were just swimming in air all over the place!
Once, I also dreamed I got a pet octopus in the mail and I had to try to keep it in a 1/4g vase with my flowers.

Man, some of the places our fish-filled minds go... Haha. And then you try to tell your family/friends about it, and they think you're absolutely nuts. I hear "you think about fish too much" fairly regularly (maybe this should go in the 'You know you're an aquarist if...' thread).

When I was living abroad for a year, I would have dreams that I forgot about my tanks and would come back to really horrible conditions, or that everyone had babies while I was gone and I suddenly had a hundred fish. I'd have to call home and make someone check on the tank.
