I feel that! How bout spending 1k on an acrylic tank to have it arrive out of plumb almost one inch! Worse yet have tide maker not respond for six weeks!

Also dropping the bag of water & coral on the sidewalk is a fun one too.

I hear that! I got a new fishy friend and I was wanting to get it home fast! I didn't get pulled over, but I was scared being I was doing 15 over the whole way. I love 45 minutes away from the nearest saltwater fish store.

Also water changes do suck, but I think by far the worse I get is a mouth full of water from the saltwater tank! By far the nastiest thing I have ever experienced.

+1 to the water changes....also when your favorite fish begins bullying tankmates...leaves you to figure out why and what to do next....getting rid of is usually not option

Moving a mass of slate every few months to clean underneath it! Pain in the behind.

5 things.
1: OMG MR.GUPPY STAY STILL SO I TAKE YOUR PICTURE

2: the prices of most aquarium gear, ex: filter is 6 dollars for 1 "no thanks, i'll just put charcoal in a bag" lol

3: fish not getting along. Excited about a new fishy, he goes in, and 4 hours later he is secluded in the corner with my pleco.

4: water changes: 'nuff said.

5: when my pleco decides, "i want fibsog to clean the most algae possible! I won't eat here, i ll just eat the rocks he replaces every 3 months."
Me: *scraping off crusty algae and giving him dirty looks*

'A' im weird.

Troll.

Trying to explain to anyone why I need another fish tank for what ever reason.
Trying to answer the question yet again for the millionth time of "why do you change the water so much?" Then listening to the sickening story "when I had a fish tank years ago I didnt change the water I just added water when it evaporated down and the filter made noises. If the fish died it just ment I could get a new one maybe a different one to look at"
And the most annoying comment. " Is that all you do? Every time I call or come by you are doing something to or with a fish tank." Well no thats not ALL I do... the kids dont take care of themselves and I dont have a cleaning fairy so yes I do other things..

I'm in the same boat with Nemo. My brother and my wife are totally NOT into fish. They just don't get it. OS.
