2011/05/07 - RIP sweet fishies

No pictures on this one.

Saturday morning I went out to feed the fish.  They were lively and it was a pleasure to hang out with them.  I did my water tests and the pH was still just a tad higher than I wanted it to be, so I splashed some acid into the sump tank.  Evidently it was too much.  Three hours later I had floaters.  I started flushing with tap water, but my mother was there to celebrate Mother's Day, and she's not an AP fanatic.  So putting her off wasn't an option.  When I came home from dinner I flushed some more water through.  By morning the remainder were floating.  I spent Sunday replacing 90% of the water.

I'm pretty upset about it.
