7) I had a nightmare that someone broke into my house and tore down my aquarium and stole it, and took nothing else. Irrational but terrifying.

6) One morning I wake up to the fact that my 35-years of keeping aquariums was really a dream... and I have a dog instead.

4) Having your 150-gallon tank spring a leak at the bottom seam at 11:30 at night and all you have to put your very large fish in is a 55 gallon tank. Go to bed at 4:30 a.m.only to have to go to work at 7:30 that morning.

3) Letting my 12-year old sit on a chair with iPod earbuds in his ears, holding the return end of the water change hose... while I pump 50-gallons of saltwater on the floor while he's not watching, completely oblivious.
