    Feel free to list your worst fears in this hobby:

    Mine:

    1. When I wake up to find my pretty big longs spine urchin dug into a cave 50 times smaller than itself.

    2. Power fails

    3. Find some of our cat's toys in the sump (apparently my fish like catnip)

    4. When night time comes and the urchin tries to get out of the cave. :eek:

    I'd have to say the thought of a couple of thousand lt of water flooding my house is pretty scary... :y10:

    1ste Power failure when you are not there to do anyting about it?

    2se Tank burst. Esspecially when you are not there to do anything about it.

    3de Chemical contamination. You go away for a weekend and your tank sitter thinks he/she is doing you a huge favour by cleaning your tank with Mr mucle or Windolean ect. Then come sunday/monday and you simply canot understand why everything is suddenly dieing!!

    LMFAO!!!! This made my day dude!! Seriously!!

    Well... I no longer have a tank at the moment, so nothing to scare me now... Except having to watch TV now instead of my tank.

    The stand thing actually drove me so far, I broke down my old cupboard and built a new sturdier stand. Atleast it was done while cycling...
