Planted Tank Obsessed

Oh man, that so reminds me of something that happened to me about 15 years ago when I was a kid. I was about 12 years old, and had aquired an old hand me down 10 gallon aquarium. I had pieced together all kinds of parts from friends and family and used my meager allowance to buy fish for it. (Believe it or not I actually had it planted with anacharis from one of our local lakes!)
Well, one day I was gone. Friend's house or something. And my mom had a lady come by to visit. This lady brought her little boy. He couldn't have been much more than 5 or so. Well, they decided to let him play in my room for the duration of the visit.
Fast forward a few hours, and I come home. I went over to my fish tank only to realize that my fish were all floating in various upside down positions and the water had the consistency of runny mashed potatos. Then I spied my jumbo container of flake food on the floor. Empty.
Apparently this little boy thought it was feeding time and just didn't quite understand the concept of moderation. To this day, I have still never forgiven him. :evil:
