Ten Most Embarrassing Reef-Related Things That Someone Has
Walked In On You Doing...
10) I was using a razor blade to
chop up a clump of kalkwasser on a piece of acrylic, and it
just so happened that the kalk was in several lines.

9) I went to the local drug store
to get some syringes, and asked the pharmacist where I could
find them. With a steely gaze he asked, "What type of
syringes?" Realizing that "killing Aiptasia
anemones" would probably be misunderstood, I froze. After
a long pause I came up with "Our grand daughter won't
take her medication." He smiled, realizing I wasn't a
geriatric drug addict. I smiled, knowing he wasn't calling
the police, and walked out with three plastic syringes for

8) I was standing in my fish room with no pants on
(the wife entered the room, having missed that I just previously
spilled salt water all over myself before taking them off).

7) I was kick starting the ammonia
cycle by peeing in the tank--enough said!

6) I was sitting at the table with
a syringe and needle in one hand and a mixture of kalk in
the other to nuke Aiptasia.

5) My wife saw me for hours with
my hands in the tank... perfectly normal except for the fact
that I was in my underwear!

4) I was on a special trip to the grocery store
for the tank, standing in line in front of a mother and
her very attractive daughter at 10PM on a Friday night with:
1-ultra sheer panty hose,
1-can of 8-in-1 lubricant,
And, of course, I also happened to pick up:

1-strawberry scented candle,
1-six-pack of Bud Ice
3) I was taking a picture of my
Blonde Lipstick Tang(Naso)... I was coaxing it seductively
closer to the glass to get a better shot. After about a minute
or so of playful one-way banter with the fish, I turned around
only to find my wife right behind me nearly in tears from
trying to stop laughing. "I was this close to getting
her number!" I told her!

2) Getting caught by my wife as
I vacuumed water out of her golf bag with a wet/dry shop vac
(mental note: don't become distracted when filling kitchen
sink to soak a dirty skimmer... sink overflowed the counter,
the kitchen floor overflowed and rained down into the basement,
thereby filling aforementioned wife's golf bag.)

1) All the lights where off in
the room. Me and another guy were looking at some of the corals
in the corner of his tank under his new moonlights. Just then,
his female roommate walks in and says, "I knew you were
gay!" Very hard to explain that one...
