Double disaster.....don't laugh
Okay....Yesterday we weren't home literally all day and didn't get home until late at night. I walked in the door and it was 100 degrees. Our furness screwed up and heated our house. At least the bathroom floor was warm! But after we opened up all the windows and tried to everything set I started working on my tanks.
I don't know how warm the water was, I don't have any thermos. But it was pretty warm, I'd guess 88 to 90. I didn't have anything else to put in the tank to start cooling it down, so I put some cans of Dr. Pepper that were in the fridge. I didn't have anything else that could work. Maybe some frozen burritos. Yes, yes I know you know where I'm going with this. So the cans after about 10 minutes would be warm again. So I started to put some back in the fridge and rotate the cans until I fell asleep. They floated way about the live rock cold, so I figured they wouldn't get near the live rock to get punctured. They didn't, but when I woke up, one of the two I had in there split open at the tab to drink out of, not like it was hit, but like it cold too warm of the pressure with being in the water. I did a 80% water change.
I had my 72 gallon filled with aged salt water that is about a 12 days old. Also the water in the 72 is the water I do changed with a 20 gallon I have two firefish in, so it does have ammonia and nitrites in it, just not much. Every day I did 10% water change from the 20 gal to the 72 and then just used the same water to refill the 20. So the ammonia was pretty diluted when I filled the 20 back up from the 72.
I've been checking the tubes that I think we're growing before, and they don't look like they've changed, actually they look bigger from when I first noticed them. I'm hoping then since they looked like they haven't changed at all, that damage was at a minimal.
By the way, it took our house over 2 hrs to get down to 80 degrees.
