I’d also consider this for the future, but based on where you’re at, I’d really consider purchasing a generator. You can expect more mandatory blackouts this “fire season”. This storm won’t be enough to compensate for the weak snow pack we got this winter.For the future I would consider a pump and battery backup. Gyre or vortech with backup battery. I’m a vortech fan.
Think it might be little more than just the power going out 2 week old tank for a anemone isn't good I've had the power go out for almost 24 hours with nothing in my tank running and nothing but a couple snails diedWe got snow last night here in Grass Vally Ca. Woke up when the baby monitor ran out of back up battery and started beeping. Power is still off , both tank are reasonably new. My fish tank is just about 2 months old my Reef tank is about 1-2 weeks old. The bubble tip anemone is surely dead, it’s limp and dangling... so is the mushroom. My Blasto and my candy cane don’t look good at all. My fish are mostly alive, Goby died... I have 2 clowns and a coral beauty still alive. Seriously new to this hobby and my first problem is a complete and total disaster. I am in the “sticks” so no electricity means no well pump, so no hot water and no heat in the house... no water , no heat, no electricity. We have a Colman stove, so thinking I can heat pans with water and float in the tank for heat? Any ideas!. What can I do to at least keep my fish alive!
Got the last inverter style generator they had down at the home deposit last night... someone else said this hobby and where o am located requires a generator... so I got one..I’d also consider this for the future, but based on where you’re at, I’d really consider purchasing a generator.
Yes, that is correct and the Anemone pulled through. I am new, but posted on here as was told I had a skip cycle rock, and since it was an 8 pound rock in 11 gallons of water... and the rock was cover with randomly attached Zoas, a mushroom, brittle star fish, shrimp, (and a few pest like brittle worms to wait just a week and try adding some frags... I did and they are doing just fine, water has never spiked anything. I am testing Daily, so far it’s 0.0 for ammonia and nitrite and just a touch of nitrate.Think it might be little more than just the power going out 2 week old tank for a anemone isn't good I've had the power go out for almost 24 hours with nothing in my tank running and nothing but a couple snails died
I could be wrong, but that ammonia test looks to be .25? and with no nitrates... This is what my tests looked like at the beginning of my cycle. Your clown may have passed because of the ammonia. Is the other one breathing hard? This is assuming that I am looking at the ammonia test correctly as pictures don't always do justice.Of course, tampering fate... everything recovered from the power outage... and was posting this evening how everything was going prefect and two hours later my new clown died. I posted another thread for questions.
