Wouldn't be such a bad thing but I can't have any of my tanks. Only my 125 gallon with my 4 Oscars but I have no where to put it. Pisses me off like no one knows. Retribution is my plan. Nothing better than me succeeding to piss her off.

I had some amazing strains of fish that I can't replace.

Oh man, she KILLED your fish to get back at you!!! That is just as low as it can get, killing innocent animals because of your own issues! Pick your battles with your own species you #$%^& ! Ok, sorry about my rant, but I bet if it were dogs or cats she wouldn't have done it, and if she did she would be arrested at once!

Jeesh...congrats to you for keeping your cool though. I would have gotten dangerously angry I think. I just hear about animal abuse and my pulse like doubles!

Good luck rebuilding everything.

So I went and cleaned my system over the weekend....

Oh what a sad sight it was....

The smell of dead fish....

I had a good bucket full of rotting fish after I picked what was left out of the tanks. One of her friends shut of the air to all of the tanks that appeared to be completely dead and little did he know Synodontis catfish don't move much when they are alive. I found one just barely clinging to life. He was in 46 degree water and still kicking. I put him in a warm tank after trying to aclimate him over the period of an hour but he didn't make it. He tried like hell to survive but it didn't work.

I drained the entire system except the 6 tanks that still have fish in them. Made the whole house smell. I picked a dead mouse out of one of the sumps that was fairly rotten... I almost threw up and wanted to cry.... It will take a while to scrub down all the tanks and get them clean for new stock. It was definately a heartbreaker. I knew every tanks inhabitants which made it harder. My Albino Eureka Red was huge from deterioration and fungus.... He was my favorite one... I haven't seen one as nice as him anywhere..


Oh well time to move on now that the hard part is over. This is what remains:

2 - Synodontis Eupterus 7"
1 - Synodontis Frontosus 3.5"
2 - Common Plecos 4"
1 - Rhino Pleco 10"
1 - Mabled Sailfin Pleco 10"
Mated pair of Parachromis Freidrichsthalii
WC colony Moba Frontosa(2m,5f)
2 - Aulonocara Albino Strawberry Peacock males
45 - Freddy juvies
2m/3f Afra Cobue breeders
2m/2f Red Top Hongi breeders
3 Adult Tangerine/Pigeon Blood Discus
13 - Xystichromis Phytophagus juvies
12+ - Red Top Hongi juvies
12+ - Labidochromis Caeruleus juvies
1 - Marbled Bullhead 10"+

Seems like a lot kind of but it's nothing. It's like 1% of what I had, if that, so in perspective it isn't much at all, but it's a start.

That seems like something that you could press charges or file suit over. It's wanton destruction of your property. If you really did fuss with keeping the temperature proper that much there's no way she couldn't have known that shutting it off wouldn't result in that kind of damage.
