Thanks, the temp had a drop of temperature yesterday and today because we turned off the tank and house heating and didn't come home for about forty hours. Then, surprise, in the middle of May, in a week with temperatures in the 80s it got down to 45 outside. They have also recently gotten to a large, dead ramshorn snail, an earthworm, freeze dried bloodworms, and whatever else the other fish don't get to.
