I'm confused: how does putting 10 Rasboras in a 60 gallon tank a little too soon ruin your 10G setup? Wink

Sorry, I guess I lost track of the 10 gallon criteria. Hypothetically, if it were a 10 gallon tank, I would have made the same stupid mistake. Embarassed I like this thread...learning what not to do.

52. Adding four mbuna to your tank of rare and expensive plants because they are colorful and will eat the snails.
53. Adding a pleco to your tank of neon tetras because it will eat their poo.

54. Letting a group of overly enthusiastic 4 year olds anywhere near a fish tank with fish food and letting them go unsupervised for 5 seconds.

55. Cutting out the whole back section of your plastic 10 gallon hood/lid so you can watch the fishies from above only to find your neat new betta dead as a doornail on the floor the next morning (in my defense I was a beginner when I did this). Laughing

56. Buy a 1' CAE from the fish store around the corner, because it wasn't bothering any of the tetras or angelfish in the small tank it was in, so it must be pretty docile.

57. Buy a diseased $10 baby fish (the species you've been looking for for months, but can't find anywhere else) from that sketchy fish store, where the owner just wants to make a quick buck, because he's mostly into selling Marine/Discus/FH.

58. Dumping as much meds/salt in the tank as you can, and raising the temperature to try to heal that sick fish really quickly, because you don't want the disease to spread, right?

Sorry, I hope I didn't kill this one... the list could go on and on... Rolling Eyes

60. Not a 10 gallon, but how about putting super hot tap water into a small Betta tank. This was my daughters first attempt at cleaning her Betta Tank unsupervised.

62. Buy one of the little cories, look t how cute and tiny he is.
63. buy one of every color of the Glo fish because they look really neat and are very active.

P.S. yes I know I'm really late posting in this but I felt this fits in.

I also love how this went from 10 ways to 63 ways!
