Checked on fry at 10 a and noticed water felt cold. Checked cords and the heater plug had come out--possibly pulled out by accident when attaching new air pump. Went into total panic, replugged in heater and prayed. :)
At that time, only a handful of spawn could be seen at the top. However, adjustable heater responds quickly and, within an hour, the tank temp went from 76-82 degrees. Checked on fry. All can be seen now, and must have been hiding at the bottom when first opened, for warmth. Fed microworms and all were actively going for the meal. Thanked God! :)
Fry fed 4 times today and very active. They are moving about, top and bottom and all over tank. Used turkey baster with small airline hose attached, to take some bottom "ick" out. Snails doing the rest. Added a small amount of Primed water, room temp (80 degree) and adjusted air flow through pump.
Last check at 10:30p, with last feeding. All doing well and still no signs of loss. :) We are now on week 2 :)
