I’m sorry to hear about the trouble, seeing our tanks have issues is always hard. I hope your back on the upswing now!
unfortunately, I don’t have a good camera for shots this small, but I did my best. I was able to count 23 last night during lights off with a small penlight. I’m sure they are many, many more!
Don't I feel a fool letting it happen again. I have ut one of those strip thermometers on the tank now (they are actually quite accurate by the looks) and it is a tank close to where I usually am and the new heater has the flashing temperature on the heater so it is very unlikely to happen again. The shrimps seem fine (bloody mary) and yesterday I saw all the Ember tetras and 1 neon tetra so I only lost a few neon tetras by the looks of it, so it isn't as bad as I first thought?
I shall look into the temperature controllers now though! They don't seem to sell them from my usual seller but I may ask him to consider getting some, he sells everything else!
Fantastic news and you must be so happy, long may it last and you must have got it all sorted!
I had another heater disaster 2 days ago, stuck on and temperature got to about 32, it was my oldest tank and the bloody mary shrimps seem to be none the worse but I lost almost all the tetras, and those few that survived aren't acting usual, d'oh! New heater in place and it has a flashing light that shows the temperature so that shouldn't happen again in the future, hopefully/theory anyway!
