How about this one:

Filter companies telling people to change their filter media MONTHLY for no reason other than to increase sales.

I get angry just thinking about how many fish this practice has killed.

With my marine land media I had no choice but to listen, the thing totally fell apart when I swished it around in a bucket! Very annoying..

Yeah like how they say "change filter pads every month" I think that it is the biggest scam for beginner aquarists.
