New Reef

My previous aquarium fell victim to a 5 day power outage in NJ...I have a new aquarium up and running using the same live rock and this time I used Dr. Tim's to instant cycle, which by the way, is awesome. I added fish 2 minutes after Dr. Tim's and they are fine a month and a half later... I am putting up new pics..need help to I.D. A couple corals in there...usually u guys are pretty helpful so new pics will be up ASAP...also since the 5 day outage I now have a battery backup...an apex CPU system and a generator...fool me once....

Negative it is a unleaded gas generator...after the Storm people couldn't sell them back to the store...got a $800 generac generator with 18 gallons of gas and 8 extension cords for 400...each full tank runs it for 10 hours...still not prepped for a lengthy disaster but short term it'll be ok

Checkout Youtube. simple conversion kits available to make a tri fuel - gasoline/natural gas and propane. I've done it to two gens I have here. First one 4200 watts and second 17,000 watts.
