Get a small inverter for your car and a long extention cord. This is the most reliable backup power source you could find.

Did you cycle the tank, or using that poor damsel to do it?

I know its al little bit soon, but when i saw the fuzzy face lion face lion fish yesterday i really wanted him. lol okay so now i have a dwarf lion fish a watchman goby and a damsel. the watchman goby is terrified of the lion fish. anytime he gets close the goby darts around.... idk why though... the damsel swims next to the lion fish. the damsel is very small like 1 in and the goby is close to 3.... do you think they will all learn to get along?

You're supposed to wait between getting fish so that your filter can keep up..

Rushing never works in this hobby. Take a deep breath. The damsel fish is justifiably afraid...of being eaten. A lion fish can take another fish that is remarkably large in comparison. They are all predator.

A lionfish? You just added a fish that will eat most any other fish. You should take him back now. They have no place in a reef tank.

Poor damsel, not that I'm a fan of damsels other than clownfish, but still...
