Lemme guess, Eheim?

Had the same thing happen to me 3 years ago -- lost a tank of 100
Apistogramma fry.  I'll never use one again, thank you very much.  
Anything that requires me to monitor the first week carefully that doesn't
have fail "secure" isn't going in my tank. I'll stick with my needle
valve-based system... though you can kill your fish with one of those, it 
doesn't spontaneously happen while you're away.
