Being late coming back from lunch because I went to the LFS I like on my lunch hour (hour and 45 minutes). Never fails, I go in and they have new arrivals.

i was filling the sink a few days ago to soak my pots in, and came to read a bit, and 30 minutes later realized i left the sink running, i have a deep sink but ended up flooding my kitchen, and part of my livingroom and it went down into the basement wow what a mess lol.

Welded a pot to the burner when I first saw a web-site with a nano. My wife's BIOLOGY PROFFESSOR told me that coral tanks were a horrible thing to have because the corals died within a year. Then a year later, I'm entranced how people's corals thrived in a 7 gal mini-bow for three years. Then a strange smell alerted me to the fact that I was boiling water for pasta three hours ago. Ran downstairs to yank the pot off the burner and it wouldn't move.

So this hobby cost me money before I even had a tank.

 

P.S.- Don't tell my wife, she doesn't even realize we're missing a pot.

Doing a water change on freshwater tank, got busy looking at Nano and forgot I was filling another tank. Almost yelled at my daughters for leaving water running when it hit me. I flooded the family room.

No floods but I did acclimate a new coral and discovered I was filling up the outer bag of a double bagged coral.
