People who don't know what they're doing. I work in a petstore and I cannot tell you how many times people come in for more "Chiclets" or "The yellow fish like the one they have at home." Argh. Learn about what you're doing! IT's CICHLID, not a gum!

The need to add one more fish/coral/invert/plant in the tank every time I go to the fish store... It's a never ending addiction lol

That it can't be in one units of measure lol. I now think in gallons and can handle dh to ppm but degrees F to C has got me stumped.

Cycling is by far the worst. The excitement of buying your new tank gets buzzkilled by then having to cycle for "X" amount of time before adding the fish you want!!! Errrg the anticipation and waiting kills me during cycles

The fact that even though you were just at the fish store two days ago you have an urge to go again as soon as possible!!

My most annoying and disappointing thing is the snake oil and false claims aquarium companies make about their products. Also the things they DON'T tell you. They need to be held to the same laws as consumer goods are. We've all wasted money on some of the junk. OS.

Bioload, algae, and water changes are in my list though.

I have to agree with this one and I am only going 25 feet to the nearest faucet!
