I'd say DROP .. Kick .. his/ her head into the tank. Bet that'll solve that dilemma with the quickness.

I don't like when my three year old sister decides the tank is a perfect place to draw with her markers... The outside of the tank had huge blue streaks.

I also hate it when a visitor comes to my house takes time to look at all 9 of my tanks and admire the fish in them and them they say you have beautiful fish tanks but why so many?
I recently sold a tank, the lady buying saw my DP bowfront and a 10g I have on the other side of my couch and said" somebody likes fish". I was like YOUR buying a tank from me! You must like fish too lol.

The lack of reliable, easy-to-find, properly organized information.
(This site is very helpful, but sometimes it would be really nice to be able to look up a list of plants or fish, sortable by whatever quality I'm curious about-size,temperature needs, water needs, light needs, etc.-in one place, not half a dozen because no one's list is complete.)

I dislike cycling and its unpredictability. I was really hoping to have my fish by now (it has been 5 weeks) and I still have no noticeable ammonia drop. The other thing I dislike is the expense. I bought a 30 gallon tank and stand for 30 bucks but the final bill will be well over $300.

I did most of my 55g DIY and Craigslist style and off brand stuff and I still totaled I think like 500-600$ range! Expense isn't what I hate tho, I hate not having money to get the expensive stuff lol.

It definitely can be unpredictable at times, but personally I do all of mine fish-in so there's no substantial waiting period.

If you want to feel better about all of the money spent then just take a look at the cost of a few saltwater setups.
