Well as you all know many of us were without power for quite a while yesterday. My fish did ok although i was running many water changes throughout the night. First thing today im gonna buy a baterry powered air pump just for this kind of scenario. I did have some casualties though. I lost 1 botia anegelicus,2 Yoyos,1 kind of botia(gold with 12 black bands running down the sides?) and my huge corydoras palateus female. All the Tetras made it through although they were quite miserable. I kept sloshing around the water in the tanks to try to keep some level of airation going. We got power back at 7.30 this morning so everything is up and running with the exception of the filters which i have to clean still but i did another water change this morning.
