Still have a lot of house damage...but hey, the fish are okay and everybody here is okay....those are the important things, right? :D
Glad to hear everything is ok. :)
I would of never thought of doing a hot water change and covering the tank with blankets thanx for sharing that dprush. I will keep that in mind this winter.
