Poor thing my power wasn't out that long, but it is hard work keeping fish alive without power. I was too scared to dump hot water into the tank, I was afraid the water would boil the fish it touched, and finish off the rest when the temp. spiked.... I'm going to have to start writing a guide book for myself for these occasions, they seem to be happening a lot lately.... Hurricanes, tornados, snow storms, whats next?
I got more Tetras (glow lights and neons), and 4 more cory's. I love the glow lights! They look like a bunch of tiny sunsets dropped into my tank.... Also to answer my question above the Neons and glow lights do school together. Now my barbs are trying to school with the Tetras.... it's odd lol. Thank you everyone who helped me with this issue I very much appreciate it!

it was more 120-150f water, and it was more of a slow drip with surface agitation. The 3 zebra danios were actually searching out warm surface current as i was adding it. Most of the times during the water changes i tempered the change water a few degrees above 80 so when mixed it leveled out around mid to upper 70's. Ofcourse i used tap water conditioner (api)....i went thru a lot of it

My Danio's (GlowFish) swam around the hot-water containers I floated in my tank too, smart lil guys. I use AquaSafe Plus by Tetra. I won't buy the food, but I like the water conditioners. I used a lot in the containers too, I didn't want the tap water to get into the tank in case they leaked. But all is well I only lost 4 fish. I got lucky.
