Where we live is a lovely location, but it does have it drawbacks, as mentioned a while back, we got flooded twice last year, here's a few pics :

At the beginning of last year the council installed a large water tower for the lake to supply the village with water...and it soon started to drain the lake..but it seemed to rain everyday from April to October and the lake got shallower and shallower, rather than filling up, so the Tower was doing it's job, as you can see from the pics the village lake is around 30 metres deep.

Here's a couple of old girls and their dogs from the village, they come everyday to catch smallfish to feed their dogs and themselves, they use bamboo sticks with a bit of line and hook and a bit of wood as a the water fell so they had to climb further down the side of the lake...

That lady there climbing up the steep bank is in her 70' slip and she would be in serious trouble. The other girl is her grandaughter.

Here's the water tower

Like I say I couldn't work out why the lake was getting shallower and not filling had not stopped raining for months, I had to go on a visa run and when I left the lake was almost empty I was gone 1 day and upon my return the lake was full...I couldn't believe it...but the installation of the water tower, even though it is an eyesore, saved us from a flooding this year.

This pic is opposite to where the 2 women are climbing up the bank, so you can imagine how deep it is..

All the best for 2010 to all at TropicalFishKeeping

it's surprising when you don't often get to see what lies beneath the water !
those ladies were lucky that the bank wasn't slippery then,as it could have
been an unlucky outcome,did they get many fish ?
how much damage did the inside of the house get ?
were you able save your possesions(sp)
glad the water tower has helped.
the very best for 2010 to you an Wan.

when you set up a new tank,hide an extra
sponge or two behind some decor,that way you have
something seeded for you next filter.
