Oooh, I see what you mean! Yeah, I know that a lot of stuff could go wrong. I ordered three mats online that are made for cleaning aquariums. They soak up water that spills and have waterproof bottoms. I am going to put down plastic over the carpet, one of the mats over the plastic, and a rug over those two things. Then I will put the tank stand and aquarium on top. When I go to change the water, I will use one mat for under the supplies and the other for the water bucket. THEN, if my Python will not attach to the sink (which I am hoping it will), I will put plastic down on the path from the aquarium to the bathroom for when I am carrying the water buckets. I am hoping that about covers it, but my fiance has a steam cleaner that I could probably borrow if anything goes wrong.
