Lights in tank.

Just got a call saying my LEDs fell into my tank. Don't know how long they have been in their. Blew a breaker and don't know how long anything has been off. I'm rushing home now. How bad will this mess up the tank?

Electrocution? Possible tank overflow?

Yes Overflow happened. Sister cleaned up the water and pulled the lights out. I'm hoping the breaker blew immediately.

A few days won't hurt. But sounds hopeful that the break tripped

Threw up the spare quad coralife fixture I had. Moved all the corals closer up. I guess only time will tell.
