    I was thinking that over the time I have dealt with tanks, spent many years on freash water and now getting into reef systems nicely, I have heard of and seen many funny mistakes.

    What mistakes have you made or seen/heard about and when realised it, either felt really stupid or just had a really good laugh.

    After rebuilding my tank I had "dust" all over the place, nothing I could do but wait for the tank to settle down. Once it was almost clear I cleaned the inside of the glass a bit and then saw dust on the powerhead, I went along and waved my hand close by and the bulk of it just "puffed" away but there was on little corner which still had dust on, I was so caught in the moment in staring that I kind of forgot about the glass between me and the powerhead and gave a nice blow at it just to get it gone - after teh second more gentle blow it dawned on me...needles to say I felt like a prize chop right then ;)

    Can somone point out where this may be?
    It is good to have a chuckle every now and then rather than always being all serious all the time...
