Re: Come home to find heater broken and fish dead!!!!
I went with another HAGEN, which was recommended by the lps. They did say they'd had a few of the other models returned by other people. I might go and get a new one and replace the HAGEN then if they're not recommended.
PS - shrimp all ok, and the remaining 3 rasbora seem to be doing ok now.
Come home to find heater broken and fish dead!!!!
I've got back from a weekend away & discovered the heater must have broken, the temperature was down to 10oC (rather than 27oC) - 2 of the 6 fish are dead, the rest are bobbing about, not doing very well at all.
They're dwarf rasbora in a 23L tank.
In a panic to save the remaining struggling fish I've done partial water changes with warm water and managed to bring it back up (which I also read may have been a mistake!!).
What can I do to ensure the struggling fish have the best chance? Is it too late for them?
Oh hi Suey2, no they got binned, with some force too (chucked to the bottom of the wheely bin!)
I did leave one little crypt in the tank, as it only had a few leaves, they've all melted, but guess what - it's growing back nicely now.
I've still got a java fern and java moss, which has exploded and a load of moss balls bobbing about. It looks a bit bare so I might have a look at the LFS this weekend and see if there is a delecate little plant I can use in my nano tank.
