I went to get our 8 year up Sunday morning for church, and squish, squish, squish . . .BIG aquarium sprung a leak overnight, and about 15 gallons of water seeped out. I couldn't do a thing about it because of going to church, so soon as we got home, I started dipping fish and then emptying the tank . . .its an octogon, so it was about a two hour process getting that all done. I moved everything out of that area, which included three tanks of white mice (well, the boys fight, so they are loners and the girls can't be with the boys . . . that is how we got so many in the first place . . .so much for Petsmart and their sexing technique ) . . .I sucked up all the excess water I could, and then shampooed it and did it several times over and over trying to get as much water out as I could . . . but we were having warmish rainy weather, and now I have a smelly carpet. I am just sick about this, and does anyone have any remedy I could try. I think I might get a gallon of white vinegar and try that just plain with my shampooer and see if that will neutralize it . . .can't afford to rip it up yet, although I wish we had put tile down in his room, because he is an animal lover and this would have been so much easier to keep clean. . .any suggestions would be greatly appreciated!!!!!
