To the new sorority....

You will be missed, my lovely sorority. you never new what hit you, when that heater exploded in your tank. All 6 of you, from crowntail to dual tail to dragonscale, fried last night in a manner un-befitting of your beauty.

How those corys and red minor tetras survived the explosion while you did not i will never understand....

First off, I'm so sorry for what happened! I'm sure that must have been terrible to find. :(

But...out of safety...can I ask what type/brand of heater it was? Maybe we can save some future lives... :(

Oh, oh yes. I tried some of these...fortunately they didn't explode on me, but one cracked and leaked all sorts of foul into the water, and the other two got insanely hot to the point that I thought the fish would be fried. :(

Again, I'm so sorry for what happened to you. :(
