Heater malfunctioned :(
I just discovered all the fish in my 7 gallon hexagon aquarium, dead.
At first I didn't realize how this could have happened but when I started removing the dead fish with the net I noticed the water was hot. Apparently the thermostat on my heater malfunctioned, and the heat just stayed on. The fish were fine last night, so this malfunction would have occurred sometime in the past 20 hours. How disturbing
. It was 100 degrees F in the tank, just like a hot tub.
