    LOL. You are not alone EL! I've done it with a fish tank (including a 240 gallon), but never with a reptile. Not that I haven't done silly things, but I've been lucky. Better to be lucky than good!

    Thank you sharing EL. Takes a big person to laugh at and share their mistakes so others can learn.

    I guess the worst I've done is started misting a tank with F10SC (clearly labeled but next to the also clearly labeled water bottle). That was an easy fix as I use paper substrate, but still, felt pretty dumb.

Well... forgot all about it, and tank started overflowing. Luckily, I was close enough to hear the waterfall. But, it was a lot of water, and a mess to clean under the furniture.

    Glad your snake was ok.
    Fish tanks are the worst man! I don't even want to admit how many times I've almost flooded my living room and we just have a 45 gallon. I always thought those python changing systems were saving my back from carrying buckets, but I never almost destroyed my floor with a bucket either

    Multi-tasking gets most of us in trouble, sooner or later. It's so easy to get distracted, and then...
