Sorry to hear about your loss.

As for smoke detectors, if possible, use ones that, in addition to the battery, are also wired into the AC of your house. That way, if you forget to change batteries, as long as you have AC power, they will still work. They can also be wired together, so that if one goes off, all of them in the house go off. The downside is that they are more expensive, and may require professional installation.

Thank you all very much. I hope to be back in and getting my tanks started in June. Sucks when you can't enjoy one of your most enjoyable hobbies for so long. On top of not living in the house you own.....

How did i miss this Clint! What a terrible thing to happen to such a good guy... I'm so sorry for your loss. I bet seeing your aquarium like that is heartbreaking. I'm so glad to hear that you and your wife (and dog!) made it out safely though. You were extremely lucky; it could have turned out a lot worse. The pictures really put everything into perspective, even though the description that you gave us of what happened sounded terrible enough!

Hope you and your wife can get back on your feet and move back in as soon as possible. Will be keeping you in my thoughts.

I was just watching a program the other night showing how many people in the US die from electrical fires, so they are truely very lucky.

Thanks again everyone!

June is now looking like July.... The house is just brick and floor joists now. I have a meeting tomorrow to go over the rebuild. I an finally starting to get excited. I am getting to design my new house.

I will post some updated pics soon.

I will say this; as soon as I am moved back in, the tank will be setup that weekend. I haven't been logging on here to often because it is upsetting to see the tank as it was and also so see everyone elses tanks evolve.

I will be back soon though!!

I hope the insurance company was kind to the new tank fund, it was all ADA right?

It could be worse
