disaster

i had all of my fish in a cooler with set up with every thing like a normal tank, heater filter gravel plants light. they were in this because i switched to Ada aqua soil and i was afraid ammonia spikes would kill my fish. when i came home from school today i noticed the filters were making a lot of nose. both intakes on the filters were knocked off i am guessing my cat scared a pleco by sitting on the lid, but any way one molly and two glow light tetras were stuck in one impeller and a molly and otto were stuck in the other. with no water movement my fish were starved of oxygen and laying almost dead and two dead as a last hope i put them in the tank i had put the ada in and two hours later all are doing well except one otto who died about 30 minutes after being back in the tank.

My sympathies B.

I too had this unfortunate situation a few years back and I know how badly it hurts.

Give your remaining pets the best of your attention.

sincere regards,
