    Glad your power is back brother, but man what a terrible bunch of losses. So sorry on top of the challenges you were already having.

    Thanks man. Acros are rtning now with the flow back on :(
    On a positive note my 40b looks ok, all fish survived in there. So strange.

    awful news :(

    Honda makes excellent gas generators. You can set it up on the patio or something. They are also very quiet. You could get a small one to run the flow and fridge.

    A very unfortunate series of events for sure.

    So sorry you're having to deal with everything all at once and the losses of your fish. :(

    Sending good energy your way.

    Wonder how much your local fish stores lost? It is time for people in California to vote for new representation. Someone willing to keep the lights on and hold PG&E accountable or break them up and sell them off. Their current plan of cutting the power ever time a wind blows is going to cost lives.
    Sorry for your loss.

    Good call. I’m going to get a few of those and a generator this week. I was thinking, my neighbors most likely wouldn’t complain over a generator sound if they knew it was keeping animals alive. A few more fish came out of hiding in my 90. My yellow watchman and my Firefish came out. It’s interesting that my original fish were the ones that made it, the ones that I originally had in my biocube before my 90.

    Very true! They are the worst. What was really torturous was listening to the workers small talk while standing around not fixing anything, I heard all about boxing, overheard some bad financial advice they were giving each other, and finally a long 30 minute debate over is Selena Gomez really going to make a come back in the music industry. All that while my fish are gasping for air and having mini seizures. So sad & frustrating. PG&E is the worst.

    Oh no! This makes me so sad. I am so sorry this happened. Extensive battery back ups should be added to the list of "must haves" for a reef system. Hopefully most everything still in the tank swings back around! Fingers crossed.

    Very true. Yea it’s really cloudy in my 90 today which doesn’t seem to be a good sign. Hopefully things will turn around. How’s your tank?

    How hot did the tank end up getting? Hopefully it's not too bad. My corals were really angry for a few days, but didn't end up losing anything - some are still a little dissatisfied looking, but they're not dead. I also don't have any sps, so there's that. I also have TONS of new heads. I know that many plants reproduce after stress events, and some will not reproduce without stress events. Most healthy plants that aren't flowering are in conditions that are so good, they don't get triggered to reproduce, aka flower. Make those conditions slightly less good and suddenly, you'll get tons of flowers.

    That seemed to be the case for my corals - lots of babies everywhere. Hopefully that will happen for your corals too.

    Wow that’s an awesome observation and super accurate now that I think about it. I have noticed that too in the past :) . My temp controller (ranco) said it was 89 when the power turned back on. Then 6 hours later down to 82. Now it’s back at it’s normal 78. My austera (sps) is 80% rtned, my big birdsnest colony is stning on the tips. My stag has a little stn on its main body. I think it’s slowing down; but I was getting worried there for awhile I’d wake up to a tank full of white sticks. Lol
