what have i done to deserve this?

I've just arrived back home from a week away ...
i guess something went wrong with the heater; poached loaches :(
I had 19 (11 clowns, 8 giant kuhlis)
3 clowns and 1 kuhli left .
yes, I'm gutted.

The kuhli seems fine, but one of the clowns seems exhausted ... She's in a quarantine tank now . Time will tell .

How can I prevent this happening again ? That is to say , what equipment can I buy, and what would you guys recommend ? I love my fish, I'm heartbroken they're gone , I feel so guilty .

I take pride in providing my friends with as hospitable an environment as possible ... I do daily water changes/tests , feed them fresh scallops, oysters and other treats that I wouldn't ever buy for myself .. I'm not looking for a maintenance free aquarium . However, I want to keep the chance of mechanical failure to an absloute minimum . This is my first disaster and by god it'll be my last .

Your opinions are valued, please share your knowledge.

Ben
