Water changes, not being able to have the setup you want, water changes, when something dies and you don't know why, water changes.

Did I mention the water changes?

Water changes aren't that bad for me right now. What is annoying is having fish uproot plants daily. Also when they discover a plant is a food source. I had 11 Dwarf chain sword runners on Sunday. Skipped a morning feed Monday morning and had no runners when i got home from work Parent plants are starting to get nibbled on too. I had lettuce in the tank for them to nibble on when this happened which makes it more annoying.

The most annoying thing to me is by far the people who don't understand anything about the hobby. When you first set up the tank everyone around me believes I should go ahead and add fish!!!! Then explaining why every couple minutes !!

Aquariums and fish shopping are like tatoos. Once you've got one you gotta get more. I started with brine shrimp in a box when I was 12 and it got heavier, bigger and more expensive from there.

Python water change hose made WC's MUCH easier. NOW most annoying for me is having a very nice(and not cheap) piece of driftwood made into a sesame bun by my Zebra Nerites laying their eggs all over it. Impossible to get off too. Getting new DW soon and the Nerites will be GONE! OS.

Yesterday, I did a waterchange using a syphon and the tried and true method of sucking the air out of the hose partially until water will run down and gravity takes over. Well yesterday, all was well until I delayed removing my mouth from the end of the tube and ended up choking on water for the better part of a half an hour.

Oh ya and messy water changes.

when you have 75 pals dollars to spend, thats 1500 i spent to get it, and they tell you "sorry they expire after 45 days you only have 15 dollars to spend.

when you spend 75 dollars on a new acrylic tank and when you get it out of the box there is a big scratch so you have to bring it back.

when your trying to get your coral home as fast as possible, then you get pulled over for speeding.
