  2. Local Fish Stores

    Anyone have any updates in the local fish stores? How they did thru storm and how they are doing now? Thanks
  3. Hurricane tank update

    Tank temp is down to 78. House temp is 90+. We ended up finding a fish that I thought was a gonner. He must like the cooler water because he is out and about now. Going on six days without power. 5 days working off generator. 1 day on chiller. Only 1 fish still missing/gone. Thanks for all the offers of help. It makes things much easier knowing that there are others out there willing to help. Nice to have gas to keep to the generator going...
  4. Hurricane tank update

    I was able to get thru to AI and they reminded me that the AI Hydra HDs have there own wifi. You can connect to the lights directly thru your phone/tablet/computer. I was able to get lights on same programming. I brought down the white lights to minimum amount. So lights are on and corals are ok so far. Tank temps climbed up to 87. I ended up borrowing a chiller from Matt. Had to make trip to Lowes and plumbing supplies. Ran into Rick O there who was doing the same thing. Shared stories and plans on what to do. I ended up hooking chiller and pump for it to apc outlet strip. Chiller kept tripping the circuit breaker to the power strip. Went straight to generator and seemed to solve the issue. Dropped tank down to 82 in about an hour.

    Sorry to hear that Al. Let me know when you are ready for some BTAs. I still have a whole bunch. How did your residence make out?
  6. Hurricane tank update

    Tank temps are up to 84 today. Got the lights up and running. Corals are looking ok at this point. Have been adding frozen RO water to bring temp down a degree in short term. Interested to see how things go over next few days as tank temps will go even higher probably later this week.
  7. Hurricane tank update

    So tank lost power at 3pm sunday. Due to nice neighbors they put bubblers in at 9 am monday. We got hone 4pm monday and had generator up and running by 6pm. Noticed bunch of stars near water line. We were able to get some out of the tank. Not sure why they were all out and on glass near waterline. Any thoughts? Tank is 81-82 temp Only issue we have run into is our AI hydra lights won't turn back on. We are having Internet issues and cell.phone issues so it maybe related to that. Hope everyone else is ok and safe.
  8. Stay safe

    I hope everyone and their families stay safe during this storm.
  9. Hurricane Tank Survival

    I think most tanks will do ok with short term temperature rises. The big thing will be water/air exchange. Head to sporting goods section and pick up some fishing/bait bubblers and baterries. That should get you thru a few days.
