Almost killed my fish today (cold water)!


Recommended Posts

I started my aquarium earlier this year when it was pretty warm outside. I totally didn't realize how cold my water was from the outside spigot after a few days of freezing weather. Today is water change day, after refilling the tank I noticed a couple of the neons drifting down to the bottom and nearly stopped moving when I realized my mistake! I scooped out about a gallon of water and replaced it with hot water from kitchen sink (dechlorinated first), it didn't completely fix the temp but brought it up enough to revive my nearly frozen fish friends. 

I'm sure most of y'all already knew this, but for my fellow first year fish keepers: be careful with your water change temps!
