    Hi all - unfortunately we were hit with a rare October snowstorm here in CT...knocked power out in my town for a full week. House got down to 44 degrees. Moved in with in-laws for the week (they had generator) - no way to move the fish. They lsted about 3 days and that was it. Sadly starting over here. Heating up the tank as we speak (one more warm water change should do it). Sigh......

    Sorry to hear about your losses

    With any luck enough of your BB lasted so that your tank won't take long to cycle.
    If you take your time to do the research FIRST, you can successfully set-up and keep ANY type of aquarium with ease.

    That's what I'm hoping! Fingers crossed. Think I'll go with rainbows this times around (though I'll miss my severum dearly).

    How disappointing.

    But at least you had in-laws nearby you could rely on.

    Thanks all - fortunately we only lost power for a few hours with Irene a couple of months ago. Well, I will keep you all informed of my progress as I regroup. Any suggestions as to what I might add if I decide to do rainbows? I am thinking some bosemani and turquois for sure, maybe some kind of tetra?
