    Frozentundra's probably right, when they repaired the lines, they more than likely added extra Chlorine to flush the lines, that is standard procedure to make sure any bad bacteria is killed, but does not help you. I'm so sorry but like Slap said; this is not your fault at all.

    I think we're going to do something like that when we my hubby gets paid today. There are a few small survivers so far. I"m going to do everything I can afford to do to keep them alive. But this is a 130g tank.

    I've noticed that people HATE it when you point out how stupid they are, so now I try to do it politely.

    I DO have a 5 and a 10 on hand though. I may just switch them over to that until this is cleared up. I don't think my angels have a chance.

    Please be wary of that tap water for you and your family's drinking/cooking needs, too

    I know right??? I'm going to have to get bottled water for my animals now too.... This is AWFUL!

    Also @Slap -- the temp was about 75.

    I feel so freaking stupid. Why the HECK didn't I think of this?????? WHY??

    Can you taste and smell the Chlorine (if this is the case)?

    There is a sight odor. Nothing that alarms me, just kinda smells like water I guess. *shrugs* I'm not tasting it... If it killed all my fish I'm not taking that change being pregnant.

    Hubby says it smells like chlorine.

    Well they did issue that warning for pregnant women to drink the water from near that spill even though it was "safe"

    Yeah, REAL safe huh???? UHG! Will natural spring water work?? We have a creek we can get water from if need be. Getting ready to head to the local fish store.

    I'm hoping they have some advice because they are on the same water.

    Going to get everything to set up my 10g for the survivors. Two small angels are looking hopeful, but not great...
