aftermath of storm

We lost power till last night. Thank you all for the advice of wrapping tank in foil n blankets. I lost my male gbr :-( and my kiddos lost there neon tetras all but one :-( everyone else is great today. Even the baby gbr made it. The filter on my 26g blew so tmw we need get a new one kinda broke from all the battery air pumps we had to get but rather be broke than lose my finned friends. Part of our siding and roof came off but got tarp on the roof until our insernce comes out. My hubby n kids are at his moms house and im staying in home i watch my finned friends and start clean up

Glad everyone is ok and things turned out decent with the tank. We were lucky up here and didn't get most of the rain or wind predicted.

Sorry bout the fishy losses And your house. Hope the insurance comes through quick for you
