Thanks. I had my boyfriend throw the heater away after he flushed the poor things. I'm not cleaning the tank out right now, I'm not ready. He did the jars for me though. I'm going to look into getting another heater soon, the proper size for the tank and hopefully a filter also. I really want to get microworms, but don't know if I have money for those too, so I may end up feeding the next batch bbs too. I'm just too exhausted emotionally to think of everything right now. I'll probably start conditioning them tomorrow, or the next day. And I'll see how things go from there. I don't know yet...

I'm so sorry, Vikki.

I got my Micro worms off ebay for only about 5 dollars including shipping. Check it out.

:( I'm sorry!
I'm with iheartmyfishes, I read the title and my stomach dropped! It wasn't your fault! You had no way of knowing that that would happen.
I'm sorry for your loss, but I do hope you try again!

I'll be using Pearl and Merlin again. I want this to be "pearlins" still. Just another batch. I really wanted this to be with Pearl and Merlin's baby's. So I'm gonna give them a try again.

Oh no! I'm soooo sorry for your loss. I would be completely upset if this happened to me. Take time to grieve and get through this and start again. You've done such an amazing job, you have no control over technical failures.

ON NOOOOOO D: I'm so sorry that this happened to you, but please do realize that it wasn't your fault. You could never have predicted that this would happen. I once had a heater get my tank into the 90's, but my bettas were adults so they were ok if a little hyperactive. That experience along with a few similar ones is what led me to only use the Visi-Therm Stealth and Deluxe heaters. I hope that you will try again. You really did a great job with the first ones. RIP little guys :(
