Just a waterchange rant.

Right at this moment I'm completely soaked after doing a single water change. I took Thrillz out, kept him in a safe little cup in my dresser, took his tank around the corner to the bathroom . . . while managing to spill at least half a gallon all the way down my shirt. While my dad was standing in the hallway, oh, and my cat. Did the water change, then as I was placing Thrillz' tank back on the dresser, managed to dump at least a gallon more of water ... on my shirt and jeans. The floor, my DVDs, my clothing. Deja vu!

Meanwhile Thrillz is just as happy as a clam ... silly booger. The things we do for our bettas, eh?

Lol oh yeah! One time my dog tripped me when I was holding a full 2.5G tank. Thankfully I wasn't far from the counter and put it on there before I spilt it all.

Guinea pigs are worst. Imagine paying 1500 dollars on a 10$ guinea pig?

Haha!! Sooo much like my first few water changes.
What do I do now?
When doing partial water changes, I use a siphon so no need to move the tank.
When doing full water changes, I dump about 25-30% of the water using a cup first and THEN I move the tank to the bathroom :D

Sorry about your DVDs and stuff. =[

I siphon when doing water changes, then when 90% of the water's been emptied I move the tank. =]

I also use jugs to fill it up again. =] I've still spilled jug water but mostly on my carpet. XD

I'm a girl! =]
