CASTROPHE STRIKES

I left my office Friday having to drive up the hill to pick up some plans. I got back after 4pm, meaning the office was all locked up.
When I came back on Monday I found that I'd left my Sea Monkeys on the windowsill where I often put them for a few hours of indirect sun. The problem is the sun isn't so indirect in the mornings and there they were Saturday and Sunday Morning.
The whole tank, wiped out.

I am bummed.

Oh no! The exact same thing happened to me when i was a kid. The whole tank got fried :(

My new tank now is dead as well, but we don't know why (i aerate every day, dont feed too much(or maybe it was too much?) either way i'm hoping that some of the leftover eggs will hatch. i hope yours come back too!

Oh yeah, I'll do another, but I'm waiting a bit. I want to take it seriously and make sure I never do that again. I felt really bad about it.
