Oh yes... those who dont understand what it takes to move an established tank are a headache..
I hear well its just a fish tank. Well that just a fish tank right now consists of one 110 gallon tall tank with a 33 gallon sump one 60 gallon tank with a 20 gallon sump one 33 gallon long tank with duel HOBs and a HOB protien skimmer and a 30 gallon long tank with HOB refugium. None of these are the lets just move it over there jobs. Its a few hours easy just for one tank with a sump to be moved a couple feet..

What's worse is filter gunk in your eye. My eye looked like something from a horror movie!

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..
Yes. Just yes. Preach

Columnaris. Period. *Edit* Or any other seemingly untreatable illnesses that appears from nowhere and slowly kills off your whole tank regardless of your diligence in maintenace.

man i cant even imagine how mad you were. i was mad over 70 dollars lol i work 50 hours a week and make 8 bucks an hour so my weekly budget is 100 or less. i couldn't afford a tank like that at, but one day
how about when you buy a tank, Itank 5g white version, only to go back and see that they have it in black and you didn't know!!!! looks like i will have two itanks
when you have to do over 5 water changes and then shower at 5 am so you arent late and your fish are happy.

when people at pet stores who don't know you, try to talk to you like your stupid and then they don't even know what a mikrogeophagus ramirezi is!! or when your buying dry rock for a saltwater tank and they are so dumb they think you are getting it for a fw and say "don't buy that, it will raise your ph." oh you gotta love the annoyances in this hobby
