I hate this week.

This has been one of those weeks where a lot is happening and nothing seems to go right. Unfortunately for me this carried over into my fishkeeping too!

So last night I was changing water in my 90 gallon fish tank. This is the tank where I have my Gourami's and most of my loaches, and various other fish that I'm pretty attached to. Anyway, as it turns out the hot water tank is on the fritz. I found this out as I was filling the tank and noticed that the glass near the python was getting condensation on it.. As it turns out. I was pouring pretty much ice cold water into the tank... moments later... scalding hot water.

3 fish had heart attacks almost immediately. Spasms.. belly up.. not breath
