[quote=doglover;1265730]First, let me say, sorry for not responding yesterday evening, but I was emotionally unavailable. I want to share this story for any of you out there that may be using the same type of containers for food. My husband and I have many dogs and cats, we have a dedicated room to the cats with many cat towers. We keep their food in the clear plastic containers with the lid that has a snap clamp to keep the food fresh and keep this container in the cat room. Unfortunately, I came home yesterday to find that one of my cats (only 8 months old) had gotten into the container to steel food and got locked inside. He suffocated to death. So please any of you out there who use these containers, please be aware that this can happen and maybe keep this type of container in a place your pets cannot get to, like a pantry. We have chosen to not use them anymore and are purchasing a screw top type container.
That is so tragic about your cat. I'm so sorry. Wow, that is sad
Poor kitty. I can't believe your Angelfish is even alive with those water parameters. You might be best off, putting him out of his pain and misery. I can't believe any fish can survive in those water conditions for any length. Any nitrites are very deadly. I'm sorry for you for all your losses. I would wait until you can get your tanks stable before you get any fish.
