So i have been having a streak of bad luck this week. It started with my 1 month old filter motor burning out Friday, hours before i was supposed to leave town for the weekend. I had to drive 40 miles just to get a replacement. I came home today from my trip thinking everything was good because my water was clearer than ever and no fish died. I did a pwc as a precaution, then i left home for the day. Then I came home to find that about 5 gallons of water overflowed out the back of my new filter, down my ridiculously expensive particle board stand, and all over the carpet. Which i couldn't really clean since its up against a wall. My neighbor works for a company that takes care of flood damage, so he let me borrow a huge fan to dry my carpet with. While he's situating the fan and I'm situating the filter i notice that the water wheel on my bubbler is spinning, i jammed it because my snails get stuck there and i didn't want the wheel to smack them in the face. The rock i jammed it with must have shifted when i filled the tank earlier because i dump the water over the bubbler so sand and gravel don't get blown out of place, i see 1 of my 3 remaining shrimp (i started with 6 in that tank) and its pinched in the groove of the wheel, and spinning. Im freaking out thinking its dead but i moved the plastic piece and my shrimp frees itself, im assessing the damage when i see it was my saddled female who is actually berried now. So im worried she's going to die or lose her babies. I already know the next thing is going to be that stand. I didn't realize it was particle board when i bought it or i wouldn't of spent a penny on it. But now that the back had water dripping down it for like 5 hours its going to swell and probably just crumble or something and my 30 gallon is going to crush the board and it'll spill the entire tank on the floor and ill come home to see all my fish dead. I'm supposed to set up my 55 gallon but after this week im no longer excited about it. I just don't want to deal with another tank right now. I also have a 10 gallon in my daughter's room that seemed ok after the weekend except for a weird white residue surrounding the new moss ball i dropped in before i left town. I cleaned it off before I added it, and I added 2 to the 30 gallon and it didn't get the fungus. Does anyone else have this many problems? I've invested too much money on this hobby to give up but i feel like it's more trouble than it's worth right now. This is supposed to be a relaxing hobby but man am i stressing out!
