My biggest fear is that my tazmanian kitten will find a way to get into the aquariums, have a snack, terrify the fish she doesn't eat and make a huge mess!

My biggest fear now is overheating the tank while I'm gone out of town or just at school or anywhere since my tank overheated over a night and 6 guppies, 3 cories, and 2 oto's all died that morning I woke up.

Another fear is my tank breaking, since everyone talks about it often and it'd be a major tragedy, and would get my room all wet and break my computer and possible lead to a fire hazard

my saltwater tank DID leak at the bottom and we had to do our tank switch(we were putting them in a 55 nos) a little ahead of schedule. I think what's scary is accidentally getting an agressive fish in a community tank. or getting an apple snail in a tank of plants.

Min ewould probably be playing my Nintendo Wii, then having the wiimote strap break, and having the wiimote fly off and crash into my tank, causing it to leak and mess up my kitchen floor!

I have a Wii too, and to be honest I'm not even remotely worried about that happening. I purposely tried to break one of my original straps (got the new ones they sent out). I pulled and pulled on it and the strap did not fail. I saw a thing on the internet where one guy used a banana hook to hang 20 pounds of books from an original strap and the strap did not fail. He would have put more but unfortunately his banana hook wouldn't balance with any more weight. Anyway, unless you've snagged the strap or caused some other kind of damage to it I don't think it's going to break.

My greatest fear is that the tubing from one of my cannister filters would come loose while no one is home and pump most of the water from my tank onto the floor. After that would be a tank breaking.
