It's been a bad day already. Went to my LFS last night and walked out empty handed. 85% of the tanks were empty and those that were 'full' had had terrible looking fish. Went for Cory cats, found some emerald green ones and one had a chunk out of it's head. But I did see bolivian rams for $5! that's cheap for around here. Then this morning, I overslept my alarm by 15 minutes. And found one of my harliquine Rasboras had died.

Are those real plants? Either way, I'm looking to get a crawfish for my 10g. What species do you have?

had a minor electrical fire today started under my tanks , found the culprit a leaking cylinder on my skimmer pouring water all over , I had to kill the power in that room for about 5 hours till I got everything dried out , spent most of the day cleaning up not easy when your not feeling well , kemo does a number on me , anyway everything back up and running resealed the skimmer seams , weird the skimmer seams to run better now too , it just sucks how cheap they make everything these days

Thanks. I had the school for about a year. They were from pets mart and I haven't found them in any LFS in town since. The remaining 4 almost seem like they are looking for there buddy lol.

considering my health I didn't need this to happen but the guy that has been doing maintenance to my tank some how found out and offered free of charge to replace all that was damaged
I don't know how he found out so fast ,think my wife called him
nothing that happen was his fault , was just cheap equipment that I was using
today he is supposed to come to do normal maintenance and replace all the damaged equipment , yes there are still good people in this world, I don't know how I can ever thank him for doing this for me .
