a very sad morning here…

three days ago I unplugged the pump on the fish tank as I was on a Zoom call and it was very noisy… I have often done this…

when I plugged it back in, nothing happened… I tried different outlets to no avail…

I decided to put the fish into the pond but had to do some cleaning of it first… got some done, but hurt my back so waited a bit…

they seemed fine while waiting… in the middle of the night it occurred to me that one of the smaller pond pumps might work in the tank…

first thing this morning I was out in the garage finding a pump… brought it in, tested it in the sink and put it into the tank… think it is going to work in the meantime…

the water is murky, which will not likely clear up as currently there is no filter… the fish seem to be swimming about and appear much happier… this pump is even noisier than the last one, lol…

unfortunately, the biggest fish died during the night;-(…
