Weirdest Things You've Found in Your Tank?

I've found some pretty strange things in my tanks that should not have been in there. Finding something like hitchhikers doesn't count, I'm talking about random human objects.

Two nights ago I found a contact lens in one of my tanks. No idea how it got in there. It's a disposable lens and it was still in tact, but had hardened for some reason.

Due to photobuckets new bs cost for use of images on forums I have deleted all photobucket accounts. I apologize if you enjoyed or found my photos helpful.

Ahaha that cat is awesome.

I found a packet of cheese sauce from mac and cheese in my shrimp tank. It sits in our kitchen under a cupboard.

These are not my pictures but . . .

When I lived in Florida, I had one of those Penn Plax Sitting Buddhas in my 55 gallon. When returning from a week long vacation, I was cleaning out the tank and found an Eastern Lubber Grasshopper (Romalea guttata) dead inside the buddha. It smelled awful.

When my kids were younger, about 2 & 4 years old I would find pennies, matchbox cars, safety pins, pretty much anything they could find would end up in my tanks.
