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)?
I don't fill my tank to the top, but I have a good reason
I have no background on any tank but one. (I did paint the room black!) and my fish are so lovely I don't see the wall!
I agree with number 3, shoal the shoalers!

I'm against massive goldfish in mini tanks with "he's ok he's been in there years"
That gets me.

Pet peeves on my systems, they are too few in number, I want MORE!
One is slightly overstocked, three are in the wrong place, lots are empty.

+1

(It's the reason they give it away with a "new" tank)

Sorry puke owners! Just an opinion albeit commonly shared!

(My first tank had dark blue stones) shhhhhh!

My American tank had South American species only, I thought that was themed?
I have a crashed plane, it gets occasional use, sometimes it's my puffers hideaway after a major breakdown of his tank I switch it to a fake piece of live rock sculpture thing. Those are my choices for his houses. (The plane was a present) actually the fish quite enjoys it!

ALL OF MY HEATERS ARE WONKY TO HORIZONTAL, AAAAAARRRRGGGGH!
I'm doooooooomed!!!!

The crooked heaters I can't help. No sooner do I straighten them out, here comes someone (angelfish, african cichlid, dragon goby, depending on which tank I'm working in) to knock them right out of place again. So I reach back in, get's knocked again, repeat... I swear it's a game. They do it to drive me insane.

I see them hiding under a plant, wood or rock and smirking at me.

I will say my pet peeve on tanks is, when people come over and stick their fingers in the water (my wife too) bugs the {mod edit because we are a family site} outta me. I got mad at my wife last night I was like ."dude no! You don't know what's on your hand nasty, I just changed the water its clean don't dirty it up again" haha
