Keep note of tank history like when you last cleaned the filter or changed filter media or refilled co2 or when you added a new fish in

If you use Chemi-Pure, save those mesh bags. Just cut the cable tie and turn it inside out to empty and you have a good mesh bag. They are perfect for Purigen as well.

If you have to leave someone else in charge of feeding your fish while you are away (especially someone who doesnt keep fish), physically show them what and how much to feed. Then when you are sure they have gotten it. Show them again.....and again.

Don't leave a note with instructions.

Even better, prepare portions in a weekly pill dispenser or simply wrap them in paper, for frozen foods use tin foil..

Make sure tank is leveled. Mine wasn't and it ended up leaking.

House hold objects can help a lot when used correctly.

For example: The bottom piece of my Aquaclear 20 filter was lost (the piece that keeps it level and a specific distance from the tank). Slid a sharpie between the filter and the tank and it is now level and works fine.

For example: Two desk lamps can be used for two Par 38 bulbs on a nano reef.

Always make sure your filters have water in them before turning them back on!
