shrimpNewbie, no damage as far as we can tell to the house as we caught it very early on. My hip is starting to complain from all the stomping on towels to try to help dry the carpet! (On top of sucking water out of it with the steam cleaner. )

Waaay too many plants for our sump to house. Have a friend that is gonna loan us a spare 75 til ours comes in.

Honestly, I didn't shed a tear over this until it donned on me that ordering the new tank was going to eat up the funds we set aside to buy a couple of Lab puppies later this year.

Well, not much new to report. The tank we borrowed from our friends is actually about a 65 gallon. We only have 2 wpg on it, which hopefully will keep the plants alive until we get the replacement tank up and running. I notice a huge difference in most of the plants so far. Having no c02 on it is having a big impact, as well.

We also lost every single Harlequin rasbora. (Plus 2 platies and 3 guppies.) They lived for over six years and were super hardy when we had them. I hope we can find some in Oklahoma City when we pick up the tank in a couple of weeks. Thought we were going to lose one of the platinum angels for a couple of days, but it made it through!
