    no advice except your archer generally would prefer slightly brackish water from what i can remember when doing research...

    Take them (the fish ) to your local fish shop. Hopefully they have a spare tank to house your fish till you fix or replace your tank. Be specific an put a NOT FOR SALE SIGn ON IT.

    Hey stormbringer just so you don't feel all alone......I just blew up 2 heaters, in my angelfish baby tanks....eish. That should teach me not to try and do water changes when I have the flu and my brain cells are dead!!!

    So where's the pics???

    Nah luckily not - it was el-cheepo heaters which we had to purchase MANY of in a hurry. We are currently swopping all the el-cheeopo's for Jagers, so not too great a loss I guess but still a MAJOR inconvenience!

    Well, at least there was a bit of luck in the unluck.... You could have lost 2 Jagers

    lol, no, I'm just a bit intrigued, that's all. I'm pretty sure I'm not the only person that wants to see the pics :)

    Besides, I also have had some accidents of my own. Blown electronic ballasts, shocked myself into the next millenium, blown heaters, broken internal & HOB filters. Yah, so I could have been nominated for a few darwin awards in the past :)
