I'm so so sorry you lost your babies like that, Rocky, in a situation so totally out of your control. :( *hugs* You loved each one and you were so happy when you would bring a new boy or girl home and I know they were so happy to come home with you. You took great care of them and I know they appreciated it.

I felt bad because, I hadn't had the chance to get them in something heated before I left and then it got really cold while I was gone :( if I had been here I would have atleast floated them in the bigger heated tank to keep them warm :(
I feel so bad that I let that happen :(

*hugs* These things happen, Rocky. The holidays are a mess at the best of times so I can understand. I know you didn't mean to let it happen and it was an accident.

I still have 2 without heaters but their tanks are very close to my apt heat source.

Mine thankfully went through a week or two of their tanks being in the 60's, so I think by now they've built up a bit of a tolerance. I couldn't get heaters for the juvies for about a week, and their water was at 55*; thankfully they all survived.

Sorry about your loss, its horrible; but out of your control. Just keep on helping other fish in honor of the lost ones :)

Ouch! That's hard to take all at once.

I'm sorry about your fishy friends but as others have stated, it was an unfortunate accident.

Animal testing is a terrible idea; they get all nervous and give the wrong answers.
