i was wondering: what are some of the weirdest things you've found in your tanks? for example, this happened with an empty tank of mine, but: i had to disinfect my 5.5 gallon with vinegar and bleach, and i've had it outside for a few days so it can air out. problem is, it keeps raining overnight!! so now i have dirty rainwater in my tank. but that's not the weird thing. i just went out to check on it and found a tiny dead house gecko at the bottom of the tank! there wasn't even an inch of water in there, and the gecko looked pretty chewed up, so i don't know if something mangled it before or after it died. maybe it was trying to get away from my cat, fell in, was too injured to get out, and drowned. now i probably have to disinfect the tank again. anyway, it gave me a surprise.
