Why yes, I did want to do a massive water change today....

My son decided to get up early today and get himself a snack and share with the fish.....

Dear Son - Fish don't eat Pringles!

Pringles are nothing.

My kid put a whole donut in my tank once.

My goldfish friend found her cell phone and tv remote in her tank. I joked with her - the fish are making long distance phone calls while watching tv. It just turn out her son thought the fish needed some fun. She wasn't to happy to get a new phone.

My 10yr old (now 11) climbed into my filter pit. (a five foot deep underground bunker that houses my pond sieve and filter below water level such that it is gravity fed by a bottom drain and pumped back to the pond) He opened a 4" gate valve flooding the pit. A 4'x8'x5'deep hole filled with water. Underneath the water was a $1000.00 pump and an electrical outlet box... The sieve and filter are waterproof.
Luckily once I sump pumped the hole dry and aired out the pump and electrical, everything worked.
Scared the hell out of him

Little G has been around tanks all his 4 years so he pretty much knows he'll get a whoopin if he messes with the tanks. But he did manage to give his toy cars a car wash once in my 45. And he wanted to feed his 2 bettas. About half the can of food.

150+ tanks Rachel? I've got to go shopping again for another 100. Maybe I can match you in gallonage?

Dilution is the solution for the pollution.
Quote me as saying I was misquoted.

If you agreed with me we'd both be right.
