The bane of your fishkeeping existance!

I was wondering what was the thing you hate the most about fishkeeping. Everyone talks about the things they like so let's switch it up. I hate neon tetras. I had forgotten that I had disliked them but recently after getting them again I have found that I still hate them with a passion. Anyone else?

I hate prying an anemone off a place it isn't wanted, i.e. my overflow intake:P

Yeah, I agree with the neons. Everyone thinks they're so pretty... Have you seen a cardinal tetra!?! Oh, and algae... I hate that stuff

I hate cleaning the outside glass of my tanks and then realizing afterwards that i need to stick my arm in the tank again. Agh!

Edit: this just happened.

I hate my awful well water. A 5 stage RO/DI and I still get readings of 20 on my TDS meter after putting in fresh resin and filters. I want to move just so I can have good water and all my algae issues, that have strangled out some of my SPS, will be gone for good.

I dislike that much the general fishkeeping populace in the states are oblivious to the hundreds of colorful and interesting native fish right under their noses.
