I am such a bad fish mommy...

I did not relize that my heater in one of my 10 gallon divided tanks had stopped working and now one of my douple tails I got when I went shopping with Christina has ICK really bad. He was fine day before yesterday and then yesterday when I went home he was laying on the bottom of the tank covered in ICK spots. I ran to the store and got a new heater and some ick meds I keep salt in the tank so I did not add anymore. I hope he makes it I feel like such an idiot. I could kick myself.

That's so easy to do. I never check my thermometer like I should. It's not your fault, it's crappy tech. Nothing lasts like you expect it to anymore!

I just feel bad because I have not been checking like I normally do I just have been working too many hours between my 2 jobs and not haveing enough me time. I normally check the temp on everybody when I feed them each day but these last two weeks I have just been working so much I feel like a zombie and am just going through the motions.
