Last night I managed to pour a bucket so that most of it spilled down the front of my 10 gallon and onto the floor, splashed the walls... Oops. I was pouring it over my hand so as to not disturb the sand and plants, but it just ran up my arm and out of the tank. My boyfriend giggled a little when I ran out of the room to grab a towel. He had been spilling things all night and now it was my turn.

Finally changed the substrate from gravel to soil/sand on my 28 and added some MTS to stir the sand. Jeez, what an ordeal. I will be using Eco complete from now on.
Also got 5 new Kuhli Loaches and more albino BNP's in this morning.

Yeah, mine fell into a large, DRY tub. Try picking up a squirmy eel like critter. Not the easiest thing in the world.

Definitely dumped about 2 gallons of dirty water on my carpets last night during a change.... I tripped on my pant leg! HAHA Had to scrub my carpets at like 10 at night.... Not how I planned on spending the rest of my evening! Lol

Haha, I can't seem to do these jobs without making a mess...part of the fun perhaps ;-) my sofa and your carpet will need to get used to this I fear!!

Oohitsae 04-10-2013 07:20 PM

Thanks! It took about 4-5 of work. Still some things I need to move around and add but overall I'm liking the look so far.

Yes, but with my love of all things vintage I hope for your sake we don't make a habit out if this! LOL :)

I'm thinking/hoping the water marks will dry or add to the overall effect :-/

At least you're being optimistic! I would've been cussing like a sailor at myself! Lol

Wow keeping aquariums is dangerous!!! I feel so much better knowing I am in good company!

I was packing up some shrimp to mail and as I was pouring them into the bag the plastic flap collapsed when the java moss bumped it and 23 dwarf shrimp splattered onto the kitchen floor. Only one seemed to be too dizzy to make the trip and I hear they all arrived ALIVE by some miracle. Some of them were still in the container wishing they had a little more water.

I bought a new Eheim 50 watt heater to replace the 25 watt Fluval heater that never worked in my 5 gallon (the 50 watt was $13 cheaper then the Eheim 25 watt). Next up, large pwc on the coffee table tank before bed.
