Death and help

Hello,
Sadly, today I witnessed a mass destruction of something I've been trying to setup for years. My room was flooded, luckily nt from my tanks; but from a water pipe. It was minor so I decided to leave my 55 gallon African tank in there, since it would be a pain to move and I would be gone for two days. I come home and find that the water shorted my electricity and killed three of my fish. Some of you helped me with stocking suggestions and helped with the salvini. The three that died were the demasoni, my first peacock that I raised, and my yellow lab. The "black" cichlid is not doing so well, it's eyes are super dilalated and it barely moves. Oh, wait I just learned my pair of giraffe cichlids died. Also, the black one is going sideways now.

Sorry to hear that. The one thing that scares me more than anything is a poweroutage while I'm away. I feel for ya. Coming home to something of that nature would be devastating imo.

I will take a look at the blackone in a sec, the salvini is still alive plus 2 female peacocks. For the black one, I think it's brain was starved of oxygen and it is now pale white.

They look okay today thankfully. Now I need to rethink the stocking ideas.
