I dislike how tall they make most tank stands.

Haha that's why I built mine only 2 ft high and this way I can reach comfortably down to the bottom of my 40g H. Also the water changes are much easier lol

Lol, I should have, but my carpentry skills are not up to par unfortunately. I just have to keep a chair handy.

I don't like plecos, they're just not for me. What also bugs me is people telling me what kinds I fish I need to get because "there's not enough in there."

Perfect! The solution to my bane! Now, I must think of a new fishkeeping bane.....
I hate it when my fish die while I am on vacation. I have had a few fish die while I have been gone, and I have no idea why because I was not here and my fish sitter did not know. Chances are that my fish sitters have accidentally killed most of them, but I would certainly like to know how....

I've thought about it. Didn't really think about how tall a 24" tank is once it is on a stand. Reaching the bottom or anything towards the back is difficult to say the least. I end up into the tank up to my shoulder.

I hate not having the money for stuff I want and the fact that I am renting where I live. Once I own my own house I can do stuff I really want to do, like put in a large in-wall tank or even just get a very large tank. I don't have the room for any more tanks or bigger upgraded tanks. Also, I know that I will be moving again eventually and I'll have to move my tanks again, which was a pain before I went and upgraded one of my tanks.

Oh my gosh yes!!! I literally have to take my shirt off every time I work on my tank! My mom looks at me like I'm an idiot! Especially when I forget to take my shirt up and my armpit gets soaked!! 39 gallon column wasn't my best idea ever lol I totally agree, 24" is a bit too deep lol

I also hate filters. They never are silent enough because my tank is in my room, my canister is golden, but my HOB Fluval is loud as can be, no matter how much I lube the impeller...grrrrrrrr so frustrating!

The lack of definite answers. It seems like we probably know some stuff, but the hobby lacks the ability, resources, and interest to actually know most things, especially in FW. Algae causes are a great example of this.
