Did my water change a day early to free up sometime tomorrow (today actually) for acclimatization of 3 new loaches I'm picking up. Besides spilling water on the floor multiple times (buckets after no fun) the DT pwc
The QT pwc
wasn't so... Started out seeming to be the easiest pwc
ever. Everything was going smooth and not a drop of water on the flow, but after I drained the tank I smelt something burning. Forgot to unplug the heater and I removed 95% of the water whoops #1. Whoops #2 was putting it into the blood worm culture I have next to the QT and I cracked the glass housing from the temperature change(I'm assuming). Not realizing this I put my hand into the water to feel the temperature. I have been shocked before by 120V and let me tell you this is worse. Whoops #3 (ssuch an eventful tone for a 10 gal
) was kicking up a bunch of sand and running the filter at the same time, got a grain of sand stuck in the impeller. Luckily was able to free it and everything(except the heater) is working nice and smoothly.
Moral of the story if something is to good to be true it probably is. Now I get to buy a heater tomorrow instead of just fish and excel.
