My one exception to my natural rule is if someone can pull off a really creative, well done tank with it. Most people just dump "unicorn puke" in the bottom and call it good. Lol.

People putting their hands in the tanks is a big one, or the one I dealt with yesterday, people letting their kids slap their hands all over the glass of the tanks. I have seven tanks, and I swear the kid got every single surface of every single tank. SMH

Angled heaters are a good thing unless you have the output of the filter directed at it.

That's my logical excuse. Not quite solid but it's the one I'm using.

As for the volume of my tanks (why they are not full)

IT'S A SECRET!
