Wow, I wish someone 'd come to my house asking for a job. I need a part time maid.

It would be a painting. I like the idea that I can do it, but I hate the inconvenience. Or worse, is unable to achieve the originally invisioned.

Culling fry! I hate to do it but the fact that they go to my flowerhorns makes it easier to do, waste not want not kind of thing.
That and putting fish down, when you know nothings gonna save them and you need to put them out of their misery.... that really hurts

I know! I hate that! So far I have been rather lucky. I add some melafix for a day or two when adding a new fish just in case (basically for the stress).

I always feel bad when I throw out MTS with my water changes. I always hope they find a puddle in my garden Smile

I have to agree with what all the other teenagers have said so far. I'm 17 and juggling a social life, a job, sports, school, and a good nights sleep is hard enough let alone adding fish into the equation. In winter, fall and spring I have school. Then summer rolls around and I have to work. Plus Jacko and I have to worry about what we are going to do after school.

In fact It was so tough to do it all that I stopped taking care of my tanks more then a year ago. Don't worry no fish, all plans and empty tanks. I did have to take a few back to the fish store though. Hopefully me selling my 45 gallon tall and two ten gallons, and buying a single 20 gallon long will solve my overload of work.

When I still had fish I would say the hardest part would be doing everyday things like wiping down the glass for algae or feeding just cause its hard to be at home everyday. Water changes were hard too because I spend almost all weekend with friends. Money used to be more of a problem when I lacked a well playing and steady job.

@Un_lu.ck_y
Did I meet you at the GSAS meeting with Karen Randall? Were you the person who sell the homemade frozen fish-food? (I know your name...but I respect privacy....)
