True story. I don't mind helping at all, I love it but you can't expect help if you accept fish store advice. I'll even admit I'm wrong sometimes. That's part of a learning process were all here for!!

What are my aquarium pet peeves you ask? Well here you go!
• The always entertaining, "he's been in there for years, he's fine!" Excuse

• Coral decor in freshwater ecosystems
• The low water level thing
• Bare tanks, mainly those with no substrate, no clue why, just ticks me off.
• finger smudges and streaks across tanks, just clean it already!!!!!!!!!!
• people who clean their filters with no reasoning as to why besides you're supposed to. (I know youre not)
• Those plants that look so unnatural it hurts
• and the spongbob decor...

I clean my filter housing out and the intake tubes once a month because they build up a nasty brown gunk that's unbearable since the whole thing is see through

I've wondered when my brown gunk will limit water flow...
It's been 2 months and I haven't cleaned the tubes, barely cleaned the filter for that matter.

Well if it's see through I don't think I could stand that brown build up either! Hey if you don't like the look when it builds up, do what we do to fix things we don't like in the south, duct tape it!

People who ask for advice, you give it then they say "well I saw my friend/some guy/some girl do it this way and everything was fine.

Yeah, it was fine then, but long term? Probably not so much.

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[/QUOTE]

Even worse. Kids who grow up around tanks throwing a handful of Skittles in your tanks.

No, that was a failed attempt at a quote. But I've had kids put Skittles in my tanks.
