If that is the case, you should be good then. AquaClears are pretty hard to clog, IMO. I have yet to have this happen to me. *knocks on wood*

okay guys... sad news! :'( this really sucks right now!

we got a freak snow. so much snow! we lost power from saturday to monday. and we still dont have internet yet. it was soo cold in the house. we had no hot water and to electricity. we all stayed in one room to conserve heat. and it was still chilly..

bottom line, it got to like 45-55 degrees. ALL the fish in this one died :'( :'( all four beautiful angels are dead now. all 6 otos died. and the BN pleco died it just feels sooo crappy knowing that they froze to death! and there was nothing i could do

i dont even know what to do right now.... ((( (((

Man that sucks! Sorry to hear that. Nothing you can do I guess, but start over with new fish. I don't know if this would work or not. But maybe in the future you could have some of those heat packs and put several in ziplock bags and throw them in the tank. In case that happens again.
