Wink *facepam* I'm an idiot XD

So I get up this morning and go to check the temperature of my tank.

Well, last night I turned the heater up from 80 to 82 because the water in the QTs is always a couple degrees colder than that of the tank and I want my babies to be warm when they get home.

Well, I check the temperature. It's not higher than it was last night (79) it's lower (78). I freaked and checked my heater and it was cold and I was like "Oh crap what if it's broken!"

So I go and pull up the power strip from behind my bed where I keep everything plugged in and go and unplug it and plug it back in and as I lower it, I notice that the button for turning it on is not at the "on" position.

Turn it back, check my heater, and it's on again XD I am an idiot XD I freaked out for no reason XD

I didn't even have them by then :P The water was only 79 when I brought them home which meant it was about 77-78 in the QTs so I added a teeny bit of treated warmer water to each QT in an attempt to warm them up just a bit, but the temperature in the tank is rising and is now about 80 which is really good.

Ah, I misread and thought you had them in the Q tank in the other.
