I always get distracted at work when doing PWCs, and I literally can't remember the last time I did changes on the tanks and DIDN'T overflow at least once. Honestly you'd think I would learn lol.

Biggest mistake, though- putting a 5" red devil in my "semi-aggressive" tank (angels and barbs mostly)- that beast massacred everything in the tank, then jumped out. Easily 20 floating fish in the tank the next morning... Not a good choice.

I've had some spills, but never let it overflow. Seems like the only time things don't work right for me is when I don't put down towels.

Ok, I thought of another one!
I got a tank off CL that came with lights and a canister filter and stuff. A lot of the equipment was fairly new and still have the packages and instructions and whatnot. Well. the canister did not. I had to google how to set it up. When I started it, it wouldn't pump water, so I looked online for help and I was told to suck on the outflow tube and pull water into the canister to get started. There are little flow control switches, so that seemed like no big deal. Well, The filter was underneath the stand already so I had to kind get down under the stand too and I couldn't see super well, because it is dark under a fish tank stand. I chose the in-take tube, and I got a mouth FULL of water as well as spraying it all over torso and face and the floor around me. It was not my proudest moment. Lol.

I did something equally stupid with the class hamster during a sleepover in first or second grade... My family was taking the hamster for the weekend by random draw and us girls decided that he was smelly and should be bathed.

We got caught late at night running a warm bath, my poor grandma tried to dry him off but I believe he perished. Nooooo!! I'm so sorry smelly Hamster!

Here is my story. When my oldest son was 6 (he is now 18 so this was awhile ago) he wanted fish for Christmas. So off I go on Christmas Eve to a store. I buy a 10 gallon starter plus 4 or 5 fish. *sigh*. I go home to start setting this baby up. Add water, fish, and the chemical packs at the same time. Tank, of course, goes a milky color with fish swimming in the fog. All the fish but one die, so I return the dead fish after Christmas and get replacements. Those die also, but the one fancy goldfish still lives on. This time I just leave it as the lone fish and get my money back on the others. That one fish never liked anyone else in her tank either. Every time we added fish, they died. (I swear she did bullied them to death.). She lived alone in the tank for many years happily with a pleco (the only thing she did like). The pleco moved to a 20 and then to our current 46 gallon. Before i got the 20 , i also got Aquariums for Dummies and read all about my new hobby. Setting up the 20 was so much easier, lol.

Adjusting a power head and temporarily forgetting that it's basically a mini water cannon when lifted above the water line... x_x
