Ouch! I've taken some nips from my puffers during water changes but they never got me bad enough to make me bleed. They just took inquisitive little nips, if they went after me like they go after food I would be bleeding!

I had this stupid idea that if i took a 2 1-2 gallon jug and placed it above a 1 gallon jug i could mix the water and salt better it would actually mix and aerate it... But like what about the other gallon and a half.

Lets just say my beautiful floors were wet. And i defeated my purpose and end up with brackish water.

I wanted wine after that. Im not considering a RO unit and be done with the jugs from the grocer.

Getting into a volleyball incendent(can't even walk right) and a car accedent of course something else would happen. XD
15 gal I found some new guppy fry while doing a water change, and scooped them up in a bowl. Everything was going well until I started to pour the water back in the tank and bumped the bowl, they went flying. Water was all over the fan, humidifer, the bucket with all tank deco, and the carpet....a good 5 min spent on the floor looking for them in the soaked carpet and I finally looked in the bucket. Every single fry was at the bottom of the bucket, with a little extra tank water! From now on they I am placing the bowl on the nightstand until after the water change....what a week lol

Wasn't really during a water change but I figure it fits here good enough.

Was starting the siphon last night for my overflow. Got a huge mouthful of water and spit right in the tank. My big red zebra decided he wanted to taste it.
