that sucks ,i have been watching,you just need one ph pointed at surface ,if your there are your back up 12v rechargable
I dont have powerheads...return pump is dc though so that's what I will be running, will just have to run it on lowest setting to conserve batteries. Backups are small computer backups I snagged from the warehouse at work today. Have a power converter in work truck but don't want to use it if I don't have to...save gas is more important.

Sally is getting stronger...Cat 2 now, expected to be High Cat 2 or low Cat 3 by landfall tomorrow night/Wednesday morning...track has shifted to the east which is not good for me. Now expecting 15-20 inches of rain. Have also recommended evacuation for those of us on the island, but for now we're staying. Got to finish prepping tonight and in the morning. Have 2 battery back ups for the tank, but not sure thats going to be enough. :oops:

Always prepare for the level above what they predict. It can change in a hurry and it will be in a favorable environment for strengthening. Personally, I would get out of the way.

Battery air pumps with air stones. I am a big believer in them now. Pirates Reef still has survivors 19 days later.

plan on my scape..some of the rock is not going to go back in the way it came out o_O

Hoping to get it done by the weekend

Stay safe man, I hope things dissipate before they hit even if it looks like they won't

Note to self: when posting a reply to a thread, do not do it on a very boring conf call. It might end up very long winded. And possibly may have a ton of spelling and grammar issues when done on my phone lol.

Second note to self: time for a glass of tequila.

That will definitely help with the spelling and grammar issues, atleast it will look like it does to you;Smuggrin
Bad thing is, I replied to the “Where are y’all getting your money from” post. I typically do not reply to those things lol. But with all the crap in there, figured I would lol.

But sadly no, one glass would not do that lol. Well, maybe a really tall glass would.

Nooo! You should never trust tequila, especially in larger quantities. Makes you do stupid things. Not that I would know...I haven’t touched the stuff in 25 years ;Woot
