This one kinda puzzles me.
Are all the facts wrong, or did I discover something.
Check this out and share your thoughts.
I got home from work last week, a tank had broken.
Well I was like !!!!!, I just lost some fish!
So I check them out and I notice a gill move, tank is EMPTY!
So what choice do I have here, I can't put them with my baby tropheus,
And I am not putting them in the big tank cause they would be killed, they are only 3-6" mbuna.
So I pick them up by hand and toss them in a plastic tub with some 2-3" fish.
The water conditions are so different between the broke tank and the tub.
Tank 79* 8.2ph etc, lake conditions ya know.
Tub 70* 7.0ph, dechlorinated tap water.
All the fish are still alive.
Go figure right.
So my thinking, does being out of the water for an extended period of time negate the normal effects that such drastic changes normally have.
I would say they were minimum 10 mins out of the water because the concrete floor was drying already.
Any similar happenings to mention?
