last night my parents forgot to turn on the AC for the house so my house got really cold really fast. This casued the water to rapidly drop from 78 Fahrenheit to 72 degrees. The heater that is in the tank couldn't keep up with the rapid change.

this resulted in my losing my Angelfish. But surprisingly my neon tetras and my 2 swordtails still swam around the tank acting like nothing happened.

ya just letting yall know what happened and to see what I should do to make sure it doesn't happen again.

thanks

How big was this tank? I thought that kind of situation was what heaters were designed for... Sad

EDIT: I just checked your profile. The 10G? That's pretty small, I guess. This makes me scared for my 5G...
