V Puffer, send the bounter hunter after me. got fish, put in QT to temp aclimate. QT heater not working so at 70F didn't notice (though just not happy in bag), hour later, drip acclomate a dead fish. One expensive meal for my nem. can I get a few hours back please? tried to revive, warm water, push water into gills with powerhead, gave up after an hour. aquaman, do your thing with david jones. I feel like crap.

Suspect something else amiss with fish .....70 shouldn’t kill a fish. Heck, I used to keep my reef tank at 72 back when we thought that was best. Low temp = more DO.
