    Coming back from vacation with dead fish, or leaking fishtank or filter. Thank goodness this hasn’t happened to me.

    i think i just buried one of my nerite snails in the substrate while i was planting and rearranging plants lol. i can't find her.

    i just recently had the heater scare :( someone plugged it in when i intentionally had it unplugged. i did two 50% water changes with it on until i figured it out. Gah

    i'm always afraid of waking up and seeing that there's something wrong with my betta... last night i had a dream he jumped out and dried out. all his scales were coming off but i think he was still alive?

    My nerite (before I rehomed her) sometimes would bury herself partially. I’m thinking if you did, it will still be fine.

    Wondering who would take care of my 6 tanks and my pond if something happened to me.

    I'm scared of finding my betta randomly stuck to the filter, she has such a good personality for a fish >~<

    I've found my fish literally over the lip of my filter and hiding inside. other times she been under where the motor is and shredding her tail until I covered it with mesh. :((

    -Couldn't find the mystery snail anywhere. I searched in all the potential places in the tank. Then I checked down the back of the tank. He was all the way down on the floor. His shell was purple & completely dry, but he pulled through! He sadly died yesterday, of old age.

    Sister or grandma over feeding whilst I’m on holiday (if it’s less than a week I overfeed and do loads of water changes because my sister would be like ‘they love me because I give them way more food than you!’

    1) missing fish and a group of shrimps and snails suspiciously gathering around something at the bottom.
    2) seeing bubbles in my heater
    3)drop a big rock on my healthy rotala bonsai( half of them died)

    I have a bad habit of leaving my phone on the corner of my tank, which is open top, so I guess dropping my phone in.

    Tank leaking or accidentally cracking it when I move it. (moving a tank today, hoping it doesn’t crack).

    All of my plants/fish dying.
