    These are the fish that were loss when the circuits tripped in my house back in January. A lesson learned was pay attention to what type of circuit your tanks are on. This almost broke me to the point of getting out of the hobby.

    Oh my GOD! That's so horrible. I've seen some expensive losses when I worked, but I think that takes the cake. I'm so so sorry!!! Just the plecs laying there all beautiful and dead breaks my heart for you.

    I am still mentally messed up. The fish I have come to accept, but the plecos I can not seem to get past.
