Once when filling my aquarium I started turning the faucet the wrong way to turn it off. the tank almost overflowed and I almost ruined the carpet before I realized what went wrong.

Did a pwc today, somehow siphoned a green Cory into the tubing. Went frantic getting it apart. Aimed the hose into the tank and literally shot him into the tank like a blow dart. Now he hides under my driftwood when I walk by. Thankfully this was my 30 gallon and not my 10 gallon.

I'm moving. Did the first tank today. I just realized I only brought the bucket the fish are in, not extras to fill it. So they are going to have to live in a cup for a little while... Oops. Noooot leaving the house again tonight.

I sucked up 2 rasboras.. 1 went down the floor drain ( I almost cried) and the second I was able to save, after creating a huge puddle from dropping the hose (5 bath towel water mess) the little fish was on the carpet 7" from the drain.. he wasn't doing so go when I got him back in the tank but seems fine now

Forgot to plug in my heater after w.c Temp went from 82 to 70 overnight (this was during winter) Luckily this was for my hardy community tank, and all the fish survived. Unfortunately they all had ich, but I cured it with heat and salt and everyone survived

That had a happy ending at least!
