I think its inevitable that if you have a large object filled with water in your home, at some point the water will wind up up on your floor! Did this just a few weeks ago! Well, I drain my tanks out the back door. In the midst of trying to do 50 different things at once, my little girl comes running into the living room screaming 'Mommy, mommy!!!' and pulls me into the kitchen. Well, I had forgotten to put the end of the hose out the back door and now had a nice pond a couple of inches deep in my kitchen! Its amazing how big 40g of water looks when its siphoned onto to your kitchen floor....

I had been warned that I would get tired easily between my body healing and the pain meds, they said to rest when I feel tired. So yeah, sitting down was good. Until I fell asleep. The 120 over flowed. I woke up to water running into our laundry room, the carpet flooded.

My hubby came home as I was starting to clean up the mess. I was hurting, tired and upset.

Moral of the story, don't over do it after surgery by trying to clean a tank!
Oh no!! I actually have overflowed my 60 gallon 3 times

I have to say the biggest mistake I've made so far is listening to people at petsmart I have learned they are only there to sell very little of them a aquarist and don't know nearly as much as people on aa

Yay I loved the 90's!! I remember my grandma washing that neon gravel in the typical tiny 2-gallon fishbowl he had my (poor) goldfish in! Don't think he lasted too long, my mom later rocked the tank for me when my Science teacher sent me home with guppies and anacharis!

She added neons, which I recently bought again to reminisce
