    I just heard a shriek from my wife, she was doing her eyelashes with her little make up brush....but I'd forgotten to tell her I'd just used the brush to cultivate my latest batch of micro-worms and hadn't rinsed it afterwards.
    Has anybody else used non-aquatic objects like this?

    Yes, all the time, but cannot recall when I used a makeup brush for tank work, ha!

    *shrug* they were only itty bitty little worms, albeit still wriggling....I think putting my dinner in the trash was an over-reaction though :(

    Crisis solved....I've agreed to take her out for a curry tonight, and have already ordered a replacement brush from Amazon :)

    I use a tooth-brush to clean the walls of my tanks. Also I use regular steel wool to clean various aquarium ornaments, like rocks and such.
    Once my Grandpa asked me if my turtle ate the fish he is kept with (they are feeder fish). I told him yes, then he told me not to add any Piranha's, as they might eat the turtle.

    I live in the Akron Ohio area. It would be very cool. I try to meet with Fishlore members when ever possible.

    The people who put their betta fish in a clear drinking class during water changes. I once asked how they would clean it as a joke. Not a joke! They just rinse it out and drink from it. Yuck :dead:
    But my friend who brought me the rescues did put her fish in a water bottle for the 2 hour drive. LOL
    Now I just use it to store gravel.

    Thats how it works with my fish on the weekend. Lights on, and I drop in the brine shrimp or frozen worms onto their sleeping face. Lol sometimes they dont wake up even after having the lights on and window open for 15mins. But to be honest same.

    I “borrowed” my mothers tweezers to feed my fish bloodworms, she still hasn’t found her tweezers.

    Besided that I always rinse off my frozen food in the sink. I once dropped like half of it and I forgot to clean it up. Later my mom found it and started screeming as she thought we had a pest invasion...
