2 swordtail females dead in one night
Ok yesterday both of my girls were on the bottem and not out much(thought they were giving birth). they both were about to pop. So this morning i see 2 half eaten swordtails. one floating and the other on the bottem. I have 7 snails so i figure that is were the half eatin part comes into play. So i check my params. My amonia is up to .25 ppm. Could the small spike be from the over night dead fish. all other params are fine fine and the other fish are fine. Just odd 2 prego swordtails dead in one night

Do yourself a favor... get a cheap garden hose and go to walmart. There is a product called the Hot Tub Magic drain kit. It has the hook up to the faucet. For the gravel vac, you can take a 500ml bottle and silicone it on the end of the hose with the bottom cut out. It works just fine and costs closer to 20 bucks than 75

You do not need the hose attached to any spigot to drain [I have never done it that way at all]. Once the suction is started it's powered by gravity.

Lack of planning on your part does not constitute an emergency on my part.
Why pretend there are no stupid questions? Actually, There are many stupid questions: "Should I drink this bleach?" Is just one example.
Having said that, Just because it's a stupid question doesn't mean that it shouldn't be asked. It's better to know.
A warm beer is better than a cold beer. Because nothing is better than a cold beer, and a warm beer is better than nothing.
