First 10 gallon tank at age 11 , went to the fish store and bought two baby oscars . The lfs worker told me they would look great in my 10 gallon tank ! He failed to mention they would outgrow the tank in a week ... Had to give them to a friend with a larger tank .

I think this tank was roughly a 20g (just guessing), it was the size of a 10g but really tall id if that says anything. I had serape tetras (maybe about 5?), a few platies, a common pleco and a catfish (a type of syno I think). And I wondered why I had fish dying every week... This was about 4-5 years ago when I knew absolutely nothing about cycling or aquariums at all. :hides:

My first tank was a ten gallon I found in an attic. I was probably twelve at the time.

My stock: 2 black mollies, one blue ram, a few Congo tetras(used to be cheap), 2 angels, a sailfin mollie, a pictus cat and a crayfish. All the pictus and crayfish did was fight.

Recently: a school of tiger barbs, all they did was kill each other. Gave the survivors away to a pet store.

I turn the tank into a cichild, the bala shark is never messed with, and what about the tetra? I'll tell you, HE MADE THE CICHILDS LOOK LIKE PANSIES. Now I have a community tank that hes in and he gets along with everyone fine. I even bought him a buddy.
Sounds like everything worked out! What makes this "the worst purchase?" Unless it was an obscene amount of money.

an "algae eater" at a chain pet store that turned out to be a Chinese Algae Eater. Within a few months it was terrorizing everything in the tank, graziing on their slime coats, and chasing them nonstop. Near tripled in size.

The guy said he had some tropical fish in his tank. Also when I went over there to check it out. It was so filthy it was nasty. He said he had owned it for a year and a half. I asked him jow often he cleaned it. He said he never had because the pleco kept it clean. He never did a water change, and get this...
He thought his bubble wand was his filter. He didn't have a filter for a year and a half. After 12hrs of cleaning I finally got this.

Then a month ago I changed it again.
