Most regrettable fish related purchase was probably my 760~ litre tank (sorry I can't remember the gallons) not because I hated it but because within 2 years of buying it I had to move it 3 times and on the 3rd time damaged the base nothing major but it was in a load bearing area.


I didn't want to risk it so I sold it with hundreds of dollars worth of equipment and lights for 200$

Bad Imported Discus.. riddled with worms. They never made it out of my quarantine tank. Spent a small fortune on them and then on vet bills and meds only to watch them die, one after the other. Heartbreaking when my local bred discus did so well.

Followed closely by Pacific Blue Eyes.. I was assured that they were happily eating dried and frozen foods; neither of which they would accept.

Iím afraid to stock my Walstead tank with anything after reading this. Iíve had many regrettable purchases, but the one that sticks with me are the dozen rosy barbs I put in a 55. They were the long-finned type and gorgeous. But hyperactive. Up, down, left right, zig, zag, EVERYWHERE ALL DAY AT 90 MILES PER HOUR. That was 25 years ago, and I still remember how anxiety producing they were.
