One day I was feeding my fish and my clown knife decided to jump out!! Just imagine a 22" fish flying through the air!!! He landed splat on the leather couch next to the tank. I scooped him up and put him back in the tank. For a few minutes he just sort of sank to the bottom of the tank, then started swimming around like nothing happened.

i once burnt a 12" strip out of a virtually brand new carpet when strip cleaning a tank that got contaminated with half a bottle of red wine. i thought id turned the heater off and laid it on the carpet, stripped the tank down cleaned everything and then went to bed. came down in morning to a hole and light brown burn mark on the floorboards....wife at time not happy. id unplugged the lights for the tank above by mistake.

*Rolls around laughing on the floor again*

I had a very interesting experience with a plaice at a sea life center. There was an open tank of plaice about waist height...I was fascinated by them...I'm fascinated by any creature really...anyway all of a sudden, for no apparent reason, a plaice launched itself out of the tank and landed on my chest. Slippery thing...I didn't manage to catch it and all the other people in the vicinity formed a little circle and stood staring at it like a bunch of idiots!! I didn't want to touch it because I know it can damage their skin so I used my fleece to pick it and put it back in its' tank. Of course my fleece dried all white and salty...hehe...oh and I've never eaten plaice again! I like them too much!

I was using my python gravel vacuum and had the end of the hose running out the back door . I needed to reach another half a foot to the other side of the tank and tugged on the hose . At the end of it all the hose came back in the back door and all the messy gravel water was on the kitchen floor . :evil:

Lol unlucky fishkeeper!

I forgot about this thread, but I had my worst moment 2 days ago. Got home with a new 42" lighting tube, set it on the sofa and then about 2mins later managed to forget it was there and sat on it :evil:

I was setting up a new tank and to see if it was level, put my spirit level up to the water line......

....I was very happy when it was dead straight.
