I've done that a couple times, but I've caught it before it made a huge mess every time so far...

Oh ya I think at some point we have all done that one. Something that works great for water changes is the 5gallon water cooler jugs. The hose never seems to come out and makes for easy measuring.

Last night I used my new siphon for the first time. It's really long, so the end wanted to come out of the bucket every time... Didn't make too much of a mess...

Well I was re arranging my tank, had all my fish in my bucket. My cat was hanging around like always. My boyfriend came in and asked what Marvin was doing. I had noticed he was crouched by the bucket but thought nothing of it. I kept on decorating away. Then my boyfriend exclaims " I think Marvin has a fish!" I look down and sure enough he was trying to eat my danio that had flopped out of the bucket. I scooped the fish up and put him back in the bucket. He was covered in cat hair and icky. I pushed him around so he got some oxygen. He's still alive to this day.

While doing a pwc I almost drank my fish.
I have now learned not to put your fish in a drinking glass. Lol

And I almost forgot to add prime to 2 out of 3 buckets. Keyword being almost, thankfully. I am so happy I have tile floors though...
I don't miss those days. Thank you python!
