That's a dirty shame. So sorry. Maybe the insurance company can make you well.

That's heartbreaking :( I'm so sorry about your loss and mess! Hang in there.

Animal testing is a terrible idea; they get all nervous and give the wrong answers.

Real sad to see these images...

Now it's time to be strong and live by your forum id and get: "BACK IN ACTION".

Peace and goodwill to you my fellow aquarist as you rebuild your life and your community.

Have fun and be PATIENT!

I'm so sorry for your loss, BackInAction. I know how difficult it is to lose fish you are attached to, and imagine it's especially difficult under the circumstances. I hope that your cray pulls through and wish you the best of luck rebuilding.

I can't even imagine how it felt to come home to that. My deepest sympathies. I hope in time you can rebuild your tanks. But I am glad that you made it through the storm.

My sympathy to you as well. Take some joy in the fact you have the crayfish, hope the little guy makes it.

Rebuild slow and it would be great if you could post a build thread so we could follow you and see how the tank is reborn.

Best of luck and if you need anything for the tank, let us know and we will see what we can do to help you in this terrible situation.

10g Fry / Hospital / QT tank (as needed)

75g Saltwater Reef, Ocellaris Clownfish, Lyretail Antias (baby), Lemon damsel, Longtail Fairy Wrasse, purple dottyback, snails, crabs and a few LPS corals.

220g Still sitting empty (come on Lottery I need the numbers to come up!)
