Top Ten Most Useless Purchases You've Made For Your Tank...

10) The shoes I have to buy for my wife everytime I buy something for the tank!

9) A Bristleworm trap. The trap is empty and the worms are three times bigger. It's more like a bristleworm all-you-can-eat buffet.

8) A sharpnosed Puffer. He turned my longspined urchin into a pincushion urchin.

7) A really detailed sunken battleship, which my kids now refer to as the "funny purple rock." Dang coralline!!!!

6) According to my parents... "Why did you buy those stupid rocks? They arent alive! You should go get your money back."

5) The most useless thing I've purchased was a $100 test kit... my $5 Xenia frag will tell me something's wrong three days sooner!

4) The actual tank. After doing a freshwater test run, I discovered the teensy issue of the back wall separating from the rest of the tank, and how that adversely affects my carpeting.

3) One sweet looking anemone I was told would host clownfish... $5.00 for an Aptasia.

2) Sea Monkeys... I wonder if they'll eat bananas?

1) "Magical" coral food. All my corals died. Was that the magic part?
