Last night I managed to pour a bucket so that most of it spilled down the front of my 10 gallon and onto the floor, splashed the walls... Oops. I was pouring it over my hand so as to not disturb the sand and plants, but it just ran up my arm and out of the tank. My boyfriend giggled a little when I ran out of the room to grab a towel. He had been spilling things all night and now it was my turn.

Finally changed the substrate from gravel to soil/sand on my 28 and added some MTS to stir the sand. Jeez, what an ordeal. I will be using Eco complete from now on.
Also got 5 new Kuhli Loaches and more albino BNP's in this morning.

Yeah, mine fell into a large, DRY tub. Try picking up a squirmy eel like critter. Not the easiest thing in the world.
