Fish Tank: June 2006 Archives

Fish crap

Kribs at home are all dying. One dead this morning, one dead tonight, the remaining two don't look too healthy. In the tetra/cory tank, my favourite peppered cory was dead this morning.

The guppys on the other hand are still breeding. This big girl was born at the end of November last year, and these are some of her two day old babies.

10L Mess

So noticed two dead kribs this morning. No idea why they died. They looked perfectly healthy. Except they were dead. :(

So fished them out, and decided I'd do a quick water change. So got the siphon and plonked it in the bucket and started siphoning. Except somehow the end popped out. And I siphoned 10L of water onto the floor before I noticed :(:(:(:( Smelly fish tank water at that :(:(

*sigh*

This is also why I don't keep anything on the floor that could be damaged by water. My biggest fear is that something will happen to the big tank and I'll end up with 120L of water all over the floor. Now *that* would be a disaster.

Soaked most of it up with a few towels, and now have a fan blowing on the rest.
