side effect of being sick

So we got a desk lamp light for the 2.5g tank and it is working great but... I couldn't figure out why the temp kept falling. It started at 78 this morning and when I checked it all throughout the day it just kept falling I was preplexed. So comes lights out time and the tank was down to 74.4 I'm all like wth! I pull it out of the tank and the heater is cold, crap I think I have a bad heater, go to unplug it and BOOM it wasn't even plugged in lol. I must have unplugged it when plugging in the lamp and never plugged it back in...

That my friends is why one should never take medicine and fishkeep. Omg I feel like an idiot lol. I even messaged the hubs that the heater was a dud lol.

One is never enough. It's an addiction

I have made some mistakes when not feeling my best I can relate. I've been sick and pushing to do the water changes despite that has been hard. I think I had pneumonia. My tanks are only 18 ft from sink but walking back and forth twice to tow the water was tiring. I had to take breaks between tanks. I think I am starting to get a little better now. I hope you feel better soon too!

@jadaBlu thanks. The brain is all fuzzy when one is sick. I am hoping the meds the Dr put me on today do the trick and I get better and stay better. I am glad you are feeling better and hope you continue on the path of recovery.

Tomorrow is tank maintenance day, he'll be doing it on his own I think. That is ofcourse dependant on what time he gets home tonight.
