Giving in to the fish begging for food. My angels are the worst! But my rummies are almost as bad. They behave like they are never fed half the time

Ha, I have one for you.....Fishing out a snowflake eel from my filtration....being stupid...putting him back in the tank too find him back in the same miserable spot. Did this not once but twice...eeek. Back to the LFS for a bigger eel. Nano tanks are a tight squeeze. Not to mention I had to pull everything out to get him....IMAGINE that at 10 oclock at night

One thing I do , well don't do, is use heaters... I live in Florida and I keep thermometers in all my tanks, no heating/ cooling problems though.
I put 6 female and 1 male guppy in my 30 gal tank.........3 months later I had like 100 of them!!! I was giving them away like candy in Halloween night!

I cleaned both canisters on my 140g cichlid tank and rinsed the media in the wrong bucket of water (tap instead of tank water). Woke up the next morning to 14 dead fish. Some that I had for upwards of 5 years. Sad day in my house.

I bought 10 Crystal red shrimp, pretty expensive critters. I have a fluval edge with a dwarf gourami, mollie, a couple mickey mouse platys, and around 5 ghost shrimp. I thought since the ghost shrimp were in there doing great the CRS would be just fine. Boy was I wrong, soon as I put them in there, they were eaten, I tried saving them, I had my sister bring over a small 1g aquarium and managed to catch 2 and put them in there, One died shortly after the move, The other is still doing well.

I once performed my weekly test for Ammonia, Nitrite and Nitrate - then without thinking dumped all three tubes of already tested water back into my tank. One fish swam into the colored water and freaked out - but didn't seem to cause him (or any others) any lasting harm.

Haha, I almost did that once. Then I read the bottles and that say "corrosive" and "irritant" :p
