This is the reason my betta is in a 10 gallon right now:..:;
Ok, a usual 90% water change in my 1gallon betta, nothing out of the ordinary, i did it once every 3 days. After I got the betta out of the tank into the storage container, it was the water change from heck itself. first, I realized that my 1 gallon overflowed and onto a VERY expensive piece of furniture. I barely cleaned it up in time, and decided to walk the tank to my kitchen. My mom has polished the floor, and I slipped. GAME OVER. The tank was smashed, and the water leaked into the basement. My betta was away from the scene and only was effected when he was acceptinly put into the 10 gallon I had laying around to care for snails. A lesson learned.
P0RN!!!

once i was siphoning my 5.5g White Cloud tank, and i was called out of my room by my parents. i went back to an empty tank and 2 gallons of water in my rug. then as i was refilling it, a gallon pitcher of water spilled on my laptop charger.

Two thinks for all you confused people:
1: The lesson is to never carry a full aquarium
2: The betta is fine, very fat after my dad fed him for a week though XD
