    Did I just kill my fish? Update

    I was sitting on my computer when my nightmare happened the stand under my 25g broke and shattered the tank fish, water, and deco went everywhere. Without thinking I just grabbed my little rainbow shark and tossed him into my 10g with those gold fish I have no acclimation or anything and quickly put some water and prime into a bucket an put my gourami and one suriving snail into that I really hope they survive :( I love my gourami and rainbow they have so much personality.

    :;fruI don't think you had much of a choice... you were just reacting as quickly as you could. What a nightmare. I have my 20 gln on a stand not built for an aquarium and I always worry something like that might happen!!:eek:

    Wow! This must be horrible!

    Don't beat yourself up about it. Just make sure that their water is PRISTINE!

    When you feed them, you may want to put some *garlic juice on their food. Garlic helps boost their immune system.

    * I make my own garlic juice instead of buying it. I mince a clove into a small cup and add a little bit of water. I then suck up a small amount of water in a dropper and apply it to the fish food that I have in my hand.

    Good luck!!

    You can always go get a plastic storage bin and put them in that with their old filter hanging on it. I do that for QT sometimes. Works great. Walmart has them for about $9 for the 30 gallon size.

    Just went to my friendly neighborhood dollar store and got a 30 gallon bin for now I'm glad I kept my old aqueon 30 filter when the tank fell it busted my three week old aquaclear into pieces.

    So far they are still calling a 30 gallon storage bin home but they have adapted and are doing fine still eating no signs of problems thank god. Looks like all I lost in the disaster was my awsome almost new tank, filter, and one snail :(.
