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?

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

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.

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.

That's 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 don't 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...

I have used a common drinking cup for holding fish, but I did wash it before using it again.

Omg could you imagine how mad my mom would be if I made my homemade fish food in a blender she bought?
Honestly I do the same thing though.
It's a personal blender, and I just rinse it ouylt and make smoothies in it
I sometimes use it to catch fish too lol, and when I make the fish food I use tank water.

It says in your profile you are a "professional inventor"! May I ask what you invent? It is most assuredly not aquarium supplies? LOL!

Or I suppose eyelash brushes could go under the heading "don't re-invent the wheel"?

Enquiring minds want to know...

Nope, nope, nope. My makeup/brushes are expensive. I probably would've cried. I already hate worms. I cannot imagine. Oh mannnnnnn. Gives me the heebie jeebies just thinking about it

Maybe I'm more of an "eh, I'll be ok" kind of gal. I've put the betta in a 4 cup measuring cup and just reused it, at first I wasn't sure but then I realized I also reuse a cutting boards that have raw fish and chicken on them. I used the big stock pot for boiling the driftwood. I triple washed it and then made soup. I did not reuse the turkey baster that I used to use to suck up the betta's poop before I had an actual syphon. I also didn't reuse the sponge I bought specifically for scraping the algae off the glass. The worm thing, not ok.

I guess we all have our limits.

Men, as a woman I’m advising you never tell your significant other that you used ANY OF HER BRUSHES....tooth, hair, eyelash, or even jewelry cleaning brush on the fish tank or their food, or even on your person anywhere!... however imagining what I’d put my husband through had he done this has me pee-ing myself a little while tears of laughter roll down my face....Ty Aquatilibus for the chuckle
