What is the Stupidest Thing you Have Done, or are Still Doing, With Your Tanks?

....is the stupidest thing you have done ,or are still doing with your tanks ? you know it's bad but you do it anyway? Like extra food, treats or water changes?

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.

Not doing enough water changes and feeding to much. I do a weekly 70% PWC but I still have extremely high nitrates. Bleh.

Refilling my 60 gallon tank with a 1 gallon jug after water changes, it takes forever but is the only way to get water down the stairs.

Not buying a large tank to start out with. We all get there anyways, why not cut to the chase?
