Get a cheap water alert. They cost less than $10 on EBay. It will wake the dead if any water starts to escape.

Help tank overflowed

They make a little box with a exposed metal strip that can be placed where spilled water would accumulate. It will sound an alert if it gets wet.

Ok guys I screwed up again. During the whole overflow ordeal I topped the tank off with rodi not checking salinity, checked a moment ago and it was 1.018 I freaked mixed a strong batch of sw and raised it to 1.021 now my corals look like their freaking out all SPS mushrooms mostly but they are "recoiling" into themselves. Have I killed them? Can I save them? HELP!!!

I would just get it back up to at least 1.024 and then wait it out. Softies will be fine. Stony corals should recover. Don't do any other major changes for a while.

How much quicker can I add a "hot" batch of sw? Can I raise the salinity that fast? The corals have calmed down now but they freaked when I first did it.

How big is your tank that you broke down?

You never did mention how big your tank is???

I have been reading along and quite scared at the opportunity of something like this happening with the tank Im looking to setup. I don't want that much extra work.

Is this only real possibility with HOB skimmers for salt water tanks??
