Was your tank plugged into a surge suppressor power strip?

Yes. The lights were on a separate power strip so when the lights hit the water everything blew and shut off power. Everything looks fine except for my pink stylophora, candy cane coral and hammer coral. The hammer broke off the base, the candy is starting to shed to its skeleton and the pink stylophora looks like it's about to break. The quad fixture is the best I can do until I can order more LEDs Thursday. Probably won't get them until next week sometime. Hope everything can hold on until then.

I was curious most decent power strips will have a fuse or small circuit interrupter that should have tripped and shut down before tripping the breaker in your electrical panel

That is what I thought. What is even weirder is it tripped the surge protector on my tank in the other side of the house.

They must both be on same circuit a gfi ground fault circuit interrupter trips at between 4-20 ma which is an extremely quick shutdown it could be due to numerous things does your outlet work now that you have reset your breaker I seen you said you are running extension cords

Yes. Once I reset the breaker everything works normal. The extension cord was a quick fix to get the tank running until I could get to the breaker box
