Extremely upset..

My dad always said he thought the loaches looked hungry, I don't know why. I never expected to come home to a cloudy tank littered with food.. After a brief and violent anxiety attack I tried doing what I could..
I lost all 7 rummy nose tetras.. Got to watch their last moments before they died even just after I came home.. The 6 loaches and the frog are alive so far and they got put into the 20 gallon. This might be the end of the 15 gallon for a while..
I don't understand why my dad thinks he is always right, I told him they aren't hungry and he didn't listen.. I'm not sure what thing convinced him he knows more about fish than I do suddenly, probably since he's the parent and parents always have to be right apparently..

I'm so sorry, Olimipia!!! But I'm glad you were able to save the loaches and the frogs. Maybe now your dad will listen to you...

Oh wow, your dad needs to be smacked. At least you managed to save some of them though he needs to stay away from your tanks if he doesn't get the point.

At least you should be able to guilt him into buying you more stuff for the tank now

Lympie, baby, I'm so sorry you're having to deal with this! WTH was he thinking!?? I'm just . . . so angry and heartbroken for you, and your babies that you've always taken such good care of. I know how overbearing parents can be, but. . . this doesn't even make any sense at all! I hope he at least had the decency to apologize. Ug. I'm so upset for you right now. . .
