    Haha, I did that last week. I use hot water and changed the water every 4 hours or so and it worked well, good luck to you! Today, at my house, is water change day!

    ooops :confused: And how exactly did that happen, hmmmmm?

    If it was at my house, it would be because the cat was trying to snorkle in the bucket while I was doing my WC, and dumped it over again the the 50th time. Always blame bad things on the cat. If you don't have a cat, then you need one for just that reason.

    Haha, no no cats here just a doggy. But it was all my fault, I was pouring water into the tank from my bucket and got careless and hit the lids causing a ramping effect for three little water droplets that I watched fly into a hole on to cable box. This was followed by a powering down noise and silence...I switched it out at the cable place no questions asked.

    You're getting eggs in the mail? I'll want to hear about that too!
    How are the killifish? Do they get big, are they aggressive?

    I've been trying to think over a colorful "centerpiece" fish for my endler tank, something the kids will enjoy since it will be in their playroom, and something that won't eat all the fry.

    That's why the double 20 stand goes in the kid's playroom ... they don't care! I'd put it in the living room or bedroom, but I'd probably get evil looks too. I'm billing it as "educational" ... hahaha. Are you getting one of those killifish egg kits on ebay? That could be fun for the lower 20gal. And maybe "educational" too!

    she asked if i was going to put it in my daughters room, because it's actually for her....(i promised her seahorses)
    anyways the way my kids been playing lately is not so safe for a tank to be around of.......so i have no other option for now.

    I just rearranged my house to make room for my new tank as well, I should be getting it tomorrow or sometime next week!

    And no, I got actual live killies from ebay, and hope to start harvesting their eggs soon.

    Seahorses are a lot of fun. One of my favorite fish that I have kept.
    I can't wait to do them again!

    If you get tank bred ones, that eat frozen food they will do amazing.
    Mine were wild caught, and ate frozen food, they latched onto my fingers all the time, ate right out of my hand. (I had erectus)
