One bad evening

Well the neighbor kids were over playing with my son tonight they are ages 5 and 6. Well about an hour after they left I noticed like half a can of fish food at the bottom of my Black Convict tank. it covered nearly the whole bottom of the tank. Son says he doesn't know who did it.
Anyways I had to vacuum out the gravel add more water and vacuum some more in oder to clean out all the food.
Then top it off when I was done with that I notice the temp in the tank was at about 95 degrees. I was like OMG!!! So I then got it back down to about 80.
Well with all that the fish are doing fine and swimming all around as if nothing had happened. Thank God!!
Oh I was so mad at the kids they were just lucky they were gone when I noticed it or they would be hurting right now. I swear I was soooo mad.
What a night.

At least yes I did catch it before I woke this morning to a disaster.
