I hate coming to visit my mother in law and seeing her heavily overstocked 14g every other day. She knows nothing about fish and refuses to read up on the stuff. Makes me want to cry. I do secret water changes on her tank everytime she leaves her house...

Another thing that ticks me off is when I'm in the LFS and see at least one rotting fish per tank, and the rest of the fish showing signs of sickness.

Fake plants... Like the really fake looking ones. Those bother me. Or tacky coral reef decor.

Bubbles of air in the background!!! Can you tell I'm a little OCD? Lol.

I don't like bright coloured gravel for a substrate. I prefer sand/dirt or natural looking gravely pretty much anything that doesn't look natural makes me mad

I usually look at other people's tanks and either feel really good about my own, or insanely jealous of theirs.

1. A low water level for no reason, like 2 to 5 inches below the edge of the tank. I'm all like, "Why you no fill tank up all the way to the top???"



2. No background. My brain be like, "Why you no put background?! Why you like looking at filter and cords and ugly wall behind tank??"



3. One tetra. "Why you no give him buddies??"



Lol



What are your pet peeves about other people's tanks (or your own)?

Ditto to all three! B-)
