I just got severe back spasms by reaching into a really high tank and siphoning the bottom. I'll use a chair next time.

I have never been in so much pain in my life...

I was remodeling a tank and took all my plants and driftwood out I stuck the driftwood in a bucket and it took about three hours to finish the tank. When I went to grab my dw to put it back in long and behold there was one of my prized and expensive zebra pleco's dead I never saw him stuck to the wood ughhh!!! Guess I didn't check every nook and cranny good enough. That was a bad day for me

I did this with a decoration and left it in the sink for hours to find out there was a pleco in the sink bone dry for 3-4 hours do I dropped him back in the tank and still to this day he is happy and healthy

Back's are weird, huh? I just turned in my desk chair one day, and walked bent over for two weeks. Then I got on a creeper under a truck, heard a pop and was sore but fine.
