I've gotten a few mouthfuls of tank water but never nearly drank a fish. I've decided sucking on the tube is the easiest way to start it, and I've gotten pretty good at it. This weekend I started it that way about 20 times with only one taste of tank water!

That reminds me if something stupid I did.

I was suckin on a tube to start a siphon to drip acclimate fish. I got a huge mouthful of water and instantly spit it out by accident into the fish bucket, along with some flem from my throat lol. I had to fish it out really fast so the fish couldn't get to itB

Last year when I was in a dorm, I was filling up one of my 5g jugs to refill my tanks. The outer rim of the shower was like two inches (maybe), so you always get water everywhere when just taking a normal shower. But, when you have a 5g jug sitting directly over the drain, you start to flood the bathroom. Well, I was watching something on Netflix and completely forgot until my feet started to feel wet. I basically flooded our entire dorm, even my roommate's room. I used every towel, blanket, anything I had and went to a couple of my neighbors to get more to clean it up. I had to use six washers and six dryers just to clean the towels and such that I used to mop it up. I even tried the vacuum (roommate's vacuum, so it was okay). My roommate was gone on some sorority thing, so she never knew. It smelled a little funky, but I just aired out the place and lots of Febreeze.

So, now I sit in the bathroom with the jugs while they fill up.

So today I tested water and started to shake the nitrate tube. Don't look down at the tube. Took a shot right in the eye.
