Just today, the unimaginable happened. I accidentally dumped a LOT of fish food into the aquarium. I frantically took out the siphon and started hosing as fiercely as possible. I was so intent on saving my fish I did not pay attention to the huge mess I was making. My mother comes and starts getting real angry because of the mess on the floor, as well as the bacterial smell that it brought. I told my mom what happened but she seemed more worried about the floor than the fish which made me rather upset. I told her I would clean it up, and I did. But my mom said that if doing water changes makes this much mess and I have to do them every 2 weeks, then I shouldn't have a fish tank. We had a huge argument and I won't go into much detail. My parents decided that the fish tank was making me become obsessed or something. They decided that the best course of action was to take away my fish tank. I cried and begged, but to no avail. I can't believe it. All the time, effort, money that I have wasted just to end up in this position. All the memories with my fish, all the exciting trips to the LFS, all the battles we have won against ich, all the time and effort spent into the nitrogen cycle, all going to oblivion. I'm really sorry guys. If this fish tank is just going to make it impossible for me to get along with my family every time I do a water change, then it just has to go, unless they give me another chance.
