 My  well  settled  2X1X1  planted  tank  developed  a  crack  in  the  bottom  pane  early  one  morning.  The  flooding  made  the  disaster  apparent  at  6  AM.  The  aquarium  was  stripped  to  catch  all  the  inhabitants  and  they  were  transferred  to  a  tub  as  I  did  not  have  a  spare  aquarium.  There  were  no  casualties  at  this  point.  The  mopping  was  a  pain  but  was  accomplished  in  two  hours.
 I  could  not  arrange  for  a  replacement  tank  for  the  next  two  weeks.  The  filters  were  running  in  the  tub  and  hence  there  were  no  casualties  there.  However,  in  spite  of  duckweed  cover  and  the  tub  being  covered  by  sheets,  most  of  the  killies  along  with  a  few  neons  and  lemons  jumped  to  their  deaths.  
 The  reason  for  the  initial  crack  was  not  too  clear.  The  tank  was  resting  on  thermocol  sheet  which  in  turn  was  on  a  sheet  of  plywood.  The  glass  was  6  mm.  This  was  my  first  tank.  The  survivors  are  currently  residing  in  a  2X1X1.5  (8  mm)  tank.
 
 Regards.
 Arnab.

 2003  mid-nov,  (Wardha):  heater  glass  cover  cracked  -  i  cant  figure  out  how.   fish  were  swimming  funny  but  none  dead.   came  to  know  about  it  when  i  was  cleaning  up  the  algae  on  the  glass  and  put  my  hand  in  to  the  water.   got   nice  buzz!!!   switched  off  the  mains,  found  the  problem  and  changed  the  heater  in  a  few  hours.
 
 2004  Mid-Feb,  (Wardha);  about  5  am  i  hear  water  falling  on  the  ground.   though  it  was  the  overhead  tank  on  the  hostel  roof  that  overflowed  almost  daily  early  in  the  morning.   in  few  minutes  it  was  too  loud  to  be  an  external  issue.   woke  up  to  find  the  floor  wet  and  the  rear  glass  panel  cracked  in  a  nice  9  inch  arc  on  the  top  and  water  trickling  onto  the  floor  from  the  back.   luckily  i  still  had  about  12  inches  between  the  crack  and  the  base  of  the  tank.     so  i  could  keep  the  fish  and  plants  in  and  work  a  little  slower  than  in  panic  mode.
 
 2007  dec,  (Mumbai):  was  away  on  work  and  wife  calls  up  to  say  "LOTS  of  bubbles  from  the  CO2  dispenser  and  fish  floating!!!!"   CO2  dump  probably.   but  lost  about  20  fish  that  day.   would  have  lost  my  prize  clown  loaches  and  catfish  if  not  for  my  anaesthetist  wife  who  fished  them  out  and  put  the  survivors  in  a  bucket  and  began  an  O2  infusion  into  it.
 
 2008  sept,  (Mumbai):   put  a  gorgeous  looking  but  incompatible  pair  of  catfish  into  my  tank  of  tetras.   LFS  guys  said  they  were  cool  fish  and  they  were  during  the  day.   at  night  they  ate  a  good  5-7  tetras  each.   they  were  gone  in  a  week  and  a  half.   was  too  tied  up  with  work  during  that  time  to  fish  these  guys  out  from  my  planted  set  up.   lost  a  couple  dozen  or  so  tetras  and  rainbows.
 
 2009  june,  too  many  slow  growing  plants  plus  high  fish  count  and  BBA  set  in.

 hrishi007:  none  of  the  fish  died  with  my  cracked  heater.   they  were  just  swimming  funny  and  rolling  at  times.   it  was  a  single  300W  in  a  4x2x2  tank.   actually  fish  can  withstand  a  lot  of  electrical  current;  far  more  than  humans.
 
 im  not  sure  what  kind  of  catfish  they  were.   vertically  flattened  head,  long  set  of  whiskers  3  pairs  if  remember  right,  nice  and  tall  tail  fins,  dark  brown  with  whitish  spots,  had  the  similar  whitish  line  along  the  length  of  its  body  from  gill  til  tail.   though  the  head  was  vertically  flattened  the  body  was  somewhat  rounded  to  flattened  sideways  like  a  normal  fish.   i  just  did  not  have  any  time  to  shoot  these  guys  but  i  wish  i  had,  especially  now.   i  bought  them  for  their  colour  patterns  and  shape.   too  bad  i  had  to  give  them  off  sooner  than  i  imagined

 My  worst  experience  actually  was  my  first  experience   to  getting  an  aquarium  setup,  in  march  this  year.  So  I  was  in  the  total  mall  in  sarjapur  &  they  have  this  aquarium  store  called  aqua  bloo  studio  or  something.  They  were  selling  these  small  tanks  5  gallon  ones.  I  asked  for  the  price  and  it  was  pretty  low  and  I  thought  I  would  start  an  aquarium.  No  reading  or  research  done,  didnt  know  anything  about  fish  keeping.  I  bought  a  5  gallon,  asked  the  shop  guy  to  give  me  two  angels,  5  neons,  2  sword  tails,  two  mollies  and  5  guppies.  No  warning  from  he  shop  guy,  though  I  did  ask  how  many  should  I  put  in.  He  said  those  many  would  be  fine.  I  came  home,  put  the  gravel  in,  started  the  filter  in  the  tank,  waited  for  the  dust  to  settle  (didnt  clean  the  gravel  -  didnt  know  that  I  had  to)  and  put  all  the  fishes  in.  Very  happy  that  I  had  a  new  tank  and  so  many  fish,  switched  off  the  lights  and  went  to  sleep.  Next  morning  found  one  of  my  angels  dead  and  the  other  one  near  the  filter,  would  not  move  away  from  the  place.  Over  the  next  week  I  lost  more.  I  called  up  the  shop  and  explained  what  was  happening,  they  asked  me  to  add  ice  to  the  water  as  it  was  summer  and  may  be  the  heat  was  killing  the  fishes.
 
 I  lost  most  of  the  fishes  in  there,  would  wake  up  in  the  mornings  to  find  fishes  dying  mysteriously.  I  took  me  time  to  get  to  the  rule  of  1  inch  per  gallon,  so  I  went   out  and  bought  a  bigger  tank,  still  the  fishes  were  dying.  Realized  after  about  3  months  that  the  mollies  in  the  tank  were  bullies  and  getting  into  fights  and  injuring  other  fish  and  the  results.
 
 I  only  have  the  guppies  from  the  initial  days  and  that  too  I  think  three  of  them.

 haha!  nice  to  have  a  place  where  we  can  learn  and  laugh  from  other's  goofs.  
 
 Here's  my  post  to  add  to  your  entertainment,  and  also  to  bring  this  really  old  topic  back  from  the  grave.
 
 I'm  only  mentioning  a  few  that  top  the  list  ...
 
 1.  We've  had  a  tank  since  I  was  just  2-3  years  old.  One  evening  around  that  time  I  was  left  unsupervised  at  home.  My  dad  returned  home  to  find  the  living  room  flooded  with  water,  fish  jumping  on  the  floor  (many  already  dead),  and  the  fish  tank  broken.  He  asked  me  what  happened,  and  my  explanation  was  that  a  few  fish  were  fighting  in  the  tank  and  to  stop  them  I  hit  the  tank  with  a  belan  (roti  rolling  pin).
 
 2.  Going  on  vacations  and  returning  to  find  the  fish  dead  because  the  domestic  help  would  have  overfed  them
 
 3.  My  dad  had  taught  me  that  at  night  we  need  to  switch  of  the  aerator  because  it  disturbs  the  fish's  sleep  at  night.  That  would  have  been  the  reason  for  the  death  of  many  fish  for  decades.  Only  a  few  years  back  since  I  personally  got  into  researching  the  hobby  that  I  realized  the  importance  of  night  aeration,  especially  in  a  planted  tank.
 
 4.  I  saw  a  lfs  shop  filling  water  in  the  tank  directly  from  the  tap  without  dechlorinating  it.  I  asked  why,  and  he  explained  that  since  the  water  was  coming  from  the  borewell  directly  it  did  not  need  any  treatment.  I  went  home  and  in  the  next  water  change  filled  water  from  the  borewell  line  in  the  bathroom.  Lost  cardinals  that  day.
 
 5.  Once  while  digging  the  kitchen  to  put  rock  salt  powder  in  the  aquarium,  I  accidentally  picked  up  and  put  in  Alum  powder  in  high  quantity.  In  24  hours  most  of  my  fish  died.  The  body  of  the  fish  had  actually  just  melted.  I  remember  distinctly  that  was  to  net  out  a  dead  black  moor.  It's  body  was  whole,  but  as  soon  as  pulled  the  body  up  with  the  net  -  poof!  -  the  entire  body  melted  into  powder.  I  think  there  was  only  one  species  of  fish  that  survived  that  poisoning.  I'm  not  sure,  but  it  may  have  been  the  guppies.
 
 6.  In  the  bombay  winter  of  Jan-Feb  2008  (which  was  more  cold  that  Jan-Feb  12),  my  balcony  tank  did  not  have  a  heater.  And  in  the  temperature  drop  most  of  my  fish  (including  goldfish)  and  snails  froze  to  death.  I  bought  a  heater  to  salvage  what  was  left.
 Interestingly,  in  the  last  two  months  despite  it  being  quite  chilly  my  balcony  tank  did  just  fine  without  any  heating.
 
 7.  Getting  ghost  shrimp  for  the  tank,  and  then  wondering  after  a  few  months  why  the  fish  small-medium  fish  have  started  disappearing.
 
 8.  In  2010  around  holi,  I  bought  some  live  bloodworms  for  Rs  3  for  the  tank  at  say  4pm.  However  I  didn't  feed  them  to  the  fish  till  11pm.  The  next  day  all  the  fish  were  sick.  Lost  a  1+  year  old  black  ghost  due  to  that  incident.  Stopped  live  feeding  since  then.
 
 9.  The  latest  blooper  being  in  2011,  when  I  put  bamboo  plant  in  my  second  aquarium.  The  chemicals  used  to  grow  the  bamboo  caused  a  disaster  killing  many  RCS  and  all  my  CRS  shrimp.  The  detail  of  that  disaster  can  be  found  on  this  IAH  post  ...  Lucky  Bamboo  Plant  killed  my  shrimp
 
 Whew!  So  this  was  just  a  highlight  of  the  bloopers  during  my  25  years  of  having  an  aquarium  at  home   Chuckle

 Hmmmm
 I  dont  know  what  caused  the  disasters  in  my  tank  (something  i  never  believed  in)  read...
 
 1.  I  had  a  48  x  18  x  18  tank  with  angels  i  had  since  they  were  babies.  big  nearly  4-5  inches  22  of  them.  were  with  me  for  nearly  2  years
 there  was  this  girl  in  the  neighborhood  who  would  rarely  come  to  my  home  and  if  if  she  did  she  would  come  in  through  the
 back  door  and  go.  One  day  came  through  the  front  door  saw  the  tank  and  said  "wahh  kitna  masst  hai  re"  it  was  around  2  in  the  noon  
 by  around  3.30-4  the  angels  started  dying.  dont  know  why.  the  areation  was  on.  i  had  fed  them  flake  food  like  i  used  to  everyday.  
 by  8.00  most  of  them  had  died.  i  tried  to  salvage  it  right  when  the  first  one  died  but  could  not  save  any
 
 2.  After  that  I  got  over  a  dozen  blue  and  gold  Rams.  they  even  spawned  in  my  tank.  Had  a  2  footer  with  the  spawns  hundreds  of  them.   this  went  on  for  about  2  years
 Again  the  girl  came  from  the  front  door.  Said  was  masst  colour  ful  hai  and  bacche  cute  hai.     Sad   what  to  say  the  next  day  morning  all  the  rams  and  the  frys  were  dead
 
 3.  I  got  2  red  bellied  piranha  and  2  tinfoil  babies  and  kept  them  together  around  a  1  rupee  coin  size
 they  grew  together  the  piranha  never  did  anything  to  the  tinfoils.   all  of  them  had  grown  huge  around  7-8  inches
 the  piranhas  recognised  my  hand.  they  used  to  feed  from  my  hands  but  if  any  other  hand  went  in  the  tank.  NIP>>>  there  was  sure  to  be  blood
 again...  same  story  repeated.  the  girl  WAH  abhi  tu  bad  wala  rakha  hai.  
 the  night  all  the  4  died.  
 
 Now  what  do  you  call  this???????  
 I  asked  that  girl  never  to  come  to  my  house  after  that.

 I  never  bred  any  fishes  in  aquarium  tanks.  I  had  a  5  x  6  feet  concrete  tank  at  my  house  backyard  fed  with  super  quality  borewell  water.  It  was  the  time  of  schooling  and  need  to  concentrate  on  career.  Spending  only  weekends  to  care  for  the  fishes.  Although  my  parents  were  less  supportive  for  fish  keeping,  they  let  me  have  some.  I  took  advantage  of  it  and  starting  adding  many  fishes!  Plenty  of  Gold,Gourami,  platy,  cat  and  2  dam  fish.  The  tank  was  filled  with  water  for  almost  4  feet.  All  fishes  which  ever  I  had  were  so  happily  swimming.
 
   It  was  monsoon  season,  too  much  of  rain  and  too  many  dragon  flies.  Initially  I  noticed  the  dragon  flies  were  laying  on  the  water  surface.  Thought  it  would  be  a  good  meal  for  fishes  apart  from  frequent  feed  of  LFS  bought  food  pellets.  
 
   Couple  of  days  later  came  the  shocking  news.  The  flies  larvae  developed  quickly  and  slowly  started  sticking  to  my  fishes  like  a  parasite.  I  then  had  to  painstakingly  remove  the  fishes  from  tank  ,  kill  the  larvae  .  Couple  of  days  after  saw  some  fishes  slowly  dying.  Emptied  the  water  in  the  tank  ,  sun  dried  it,  fill  with  fresh  borewell  water  and  introduced  the  survivors  back  to  their  environment.  few  days  later  1  by  1  started  dying  until  none  left.
 
 The  mistake  I  did  was  the  tank  still  had  couple  of  larvae  left  on  the  plantations  ,  it  was  difficult  and  time  consuming  to  eradicate  pests.

 I  had  the  best  time  of  breeding  the  fishes  successfully  and  loosing  them  altogether  to  dragon  fly  larvae.

 Worst  one  was  when  i  helped  my  friend  build  his  6footx1.5  feetx2.75feet  tank  and  explode  after  10  hours  after  filling  it.

 Can  You  See  The  Pattern  ,  Most  of  the  mishaps  happen  Early  in  the  mornings?  Are  the  fish  trying  to  escape  ;-)

 Several  years  back  when  i  was  an  experimental  novice  with  aquarium  plants.  Being  a  graduate  in  agriculture  specializing  in  composting,  i  added  some  urea  to  a  good  collection  of  plants  directly  to  the  substrate.  The  following  day  all  plants  melted.  Lesson  :  organic  nitrogen  burn  =  meltdown.

 ONE  morning  while  brushing,  I  heard   a  big  creak.  Turned  around  and  saw  my  90  gallon-  3.5ft  well  established  (  over  a  year)  marine  tank  still  holding  its  look.
 Just  a  moment  later,  I  experienced  the  lovely  sound  of  a  waterfall.  Turned  around  and  there  lay  my  horror.
 
 My  tank's  rear  glass  had  cracked  end  to  end  diagonally.  Had  used  12  mm  branded  glass  with  good  supports.  The  water  was  leaking  real  fast.  Had  no  alternatives.  Had  to  think  and  act  fast.  Used  all  the  buckets  and  utensils  to  save  as  much  water  as  i  can.  Then  somehow  transferred  the  live  rock,live  stock.
 It  was  a  real  pain  to  strip  the  whole  landscape  and  ,  search  for  each  one  of  the  pets  and  within  limited  time  frame.By  the  time  i  picked  the  last  one,  there  was  hardly  any  water  in  the  tank.
 
 Not  to  mention  the  mess  created,  saving  the  whole  thing  till  another  tank  was  set  up  was  the  herculean  task.
 
 could  manager  to  save  only  60%  of  the  love  stock.  Poor  babies  had  gone  through  hell  for  almost  a  month  till  they  were  eventually  escorted  to  their  new  place.
 
 The  shock  still  scares  me.  Good  it  happened  while  i  was  around.  Had  i  been  in  office,  couldn't  have  saved  a  single  soul.
