Hello from Fishtales
Just wanted to say hello, having just registered. Some of you may recognise my name from the other forum. Thanks for the link here Stephen and referral  Smile

About 8 weeks ago I had a flood, burst pipes in the house which knocked the electrics off as well. By the time I got my house and tanks back up running properly it had already caused issues. I have got it back to where it should be, but there were some casualties unfortunately. My Sailfin pleco and Rainbow shark came through it pretty unscathed, but it was a close call with my albino/bronze cory. They are doing great now. I lost most of my guppies and quite a few Black widows. 

On a positive, I am relieved I didn't lose my entire tank.

 So anyway that's me....and hello!  Smile

BTW- You have no idea how difficult I found working out how to use those smilies was, lol.
