    Probably seeing my Pearl Gouramis die in front of me. They were from PetCO and unbeknownst to me they weren't exactly in the best of shape. Sadly, I had never seen a healthy Pearl and bought them anyways - 1 of them survived and is looking absolutely amazing.

    Wel, my worst experience was when I was younger and knew nothing about fish and killed several Goldfish and a Betta. :'( Since I set up a real tropical tank and actually did some research, nothing too bad has happened, except that my Otos keep getting sick/injured. :(

    When I had to haul a huge piece of driftwood out of my 75G tank with a Clown Loach stuck in it.
    Hauled it out, laid it out on the floor, chiseled him out with a screwdriver, watched him flop all over the floor. Eventually the driftwood with all holes blocked and the Clown went back into the tank. The first thing he did was go back and check out the hole he got stuck in. go figure!! :)

    When I first started into this hobby I added fish way too fast and killed 4 innocent, beautiful panda cory's. I felt sick! Patients is key to being successful in this hobby.

    My worst experience must have been the day after I bought my first fish and one of my Zebra Danios got stuck in the filter and I had to take the whole filter apart to get him out. He's ok now but he did split his fin and it took a while to heal. :'( It hasn't happend since! :) (Touch wood!!!)

    Omorrokh, lol, that happens to me a lot actually, haha. I often find myself so absorbed with cleaning my tank's bottom that I forget about the other end of the siphon tube. Oftentimes the other end ends up spilling dirty water directly on the floor. One time I didn't notice the water spilling out until I felt a wet floor beneath my feet.

    My worst experience was watching Azul die of dropsy after suffering from one thing and another for 2 months and then finally having kidney failure.

    My worst experience would have to be when I was raising my baby platy's. I was down to two babies and decided to let the bigger one swim around outside the net. Well, he was not big enough as it turned out. My female beta took off after him within a few minutes, she managed to get most of him in her mouth with me chasing her around the tank with the fish net trying to stop her. The baby didn't survive, and I ended up putting the beta in her own 5 gal. tank. I have one baby that survived to make it to the community tank and she is doing wonderfully.

    This doesn't seem so bad now that I have actualy lost one of my fish. I lost him around 4-5 days age. Whaen I say I've lost him, he is actualy not there any more. I took everything out and checked everywhere, even the floor (just in case). He's just sort of vanished....
