tell me about it.

the worst for freshwater was prob. growing up as a kid. we had a tiger barb tank that had fry and we raised the babies to adults. we went on vacation and long story short we came home to a dead tank. i was pretty young at the time and dont remember to much detail but it was in my basement and i guess the heater malfunctioned. good thing heaters are made better now then they were.

the worst saltwater was moving fish and corals into a new tank late into the night. everything seemed to have transitioned over fine without a single loss. the following morning i woke up to a milky white tank and a majority of it dead. i assume the corals had a nice war with eachother releasing their toxins, slowly killing one thing after the next. i had a colony of 200+ palythoas which can release a nasty toxin ( even to humans ) and i think thats what did most of my stuff in. once they started releasing toxins, im sure most if not everything else in the mixed reef did. long story short, i lost fish and corals which were my pets and not to mention the money invested.

who knows why i still do what i do, besides me and i can tell you why. i love it.


amy hang in there, as hard as it is.. stay patient. it gets better esp. when you do it right.
and dont forget to research! that will only improve your success.
