Advice on sump needed.
Woke up at 4.15am with my hubby yelling as the tank was overflowing from the top at a a rapid speed and the sump was being drained. Confused and rushing ( beige carpet in a rental ) I turned off the individual power points and this stopped more water emptying. Carpets FLOODED. Why? We checked the system, the overflow was still in position...why? Culprit found- The anemone decided to sit over the top of the PVC
weir and blocked it off so the sump backed up into the tank
Meanwhile, hubby yells after I hear a buzzing noise and got electrocuted while pulling the plugs out- oops. Didn't turn off the power at the wall
A bit concerned now that if I am at work or go away for a weekend etc, this cheeky anemone may decide to climb back up to the top of the weir for a look around.
Am I able to turn off the sump for an amount of time and rely on live rocks and the wave makers for filtration? I think this tank is taking over my life - not like my cichlids lol
PS. Hubby is ok. Felt a bit sick as the shock went through to his chest but was still a trooper and continued to help clean up. Ever the more cautious to touch the plugs though ...
