it brilliant they survived the earth quake

4 and a 1/2 months my koi and goldies do that every winter no problem but their metabolism slows down so much they dont need to eat

so the fact that they survive at normal metabolism is good they would have fed off anything they could find including their deceased friends
what i find amazing is that they survived not having good water conditions ,air and filters in that time well done wee fishes

It was more than one quake. Have a look here for a visual on where, when, and how big each of over 3,500 quakes have been. It starts slowly so give it a few seconds going through the time line before the major quakes start to hit.

I too am more amazed the fish survived in a small tank with no filtration etc (power has been off) and their mates dying. I realise they ate most of them but there would still be a lot of bad stuff being released off the dead bodies in such a small environment. Much different to surviving winter in a pond.

I think they have said about 80% of buildings in the CBD have to be demolished, if the quakes haven't brought them down already. :cry:
