The entire tank stocking was an impulse. I was meant to be getting cichlids and had the rocks and everything planned out. Every second employee at the lfs has them so heaps of advice.

Then kind of changed my mind at last second and went with cheaper fish. After that it was all matching to those fish. Kind of regret I didn't hold to the original plan.

I have had a lot of impulse buys. I go looking for one thing and they don't have it and I refuse to leave empty handed haha. Some of these buys are the reason I keep setting up more tanks!
So if we count things I didn't plan on buying: 22 cories, 3 swordtails, 9 gold pristella tetras, and an assassin snail. I still have most of them.

Lol - that's dedication!

Bought a hob filter for my sister last night. Then got carried away and bought a co2 checker and then thought what the heck and bought a co2 diffuser (hopefully fits the tank, forgot to look at measurements in haste).

I purchased 6 giant danios. They wrecked havoc on my tank. To this day I have nightmares about trying to catch them to take them back to the lfs.

I impulse got 4 free GBR on Craigslist. The person was quite clear that they would 'get rid' of the fish if there were no takers. Whether that's true or not I'll never know but I took them. They were in pretty rough shape. Lost 1 but the other three are fine!

Years ago I bought a paradise fish without much research. Didn't know they were jumpers and he lived in a tank without a lid. That didn't end well

In my first few months keeping fish I bought a gold severum on impulse. He was the cutest little fish (about the size of a quarter) and I had no clue what a severum was or how much trouble he would cause in a 20 gallon... Whoops. I ended up getting a 40 gallon for him and had him for 2 more years before giving him away to my friend's 90 gallon tank, where he's happy and healthy and has a lady friend.
