so its their fault for not telling you so you can take precaustions to avoid this. if they aren't goign to cover this then i may suggest consulting a lawyer and see what they say, or if you have a lawyer friend see what you could do about it

Good luck with that, I mean would it make a difference if the power was cut because of a storm. I wish you the best of luck though, how far up are your returns? I use an overflow setup for my sump. I messed up when I first placed the aqua lifter, and burnt it out because I was doing more than a 30" lift. Thankfully i noticed this on my own and replaced it last week. Just got power back here @ 2am after being out for 29hours...
Are you going to take out the 200G and re-cure them so you don't spike and hurt the fish?
