OJ in reef tank!

Ok this probably doesn't happen everyday but of coarse it did to me. My 2 year old felt like my tank could use some vitamin C and dumped his orange juice in the sump. Now the tank is pretty cloudy but everything seems to be fine. Should I just not worry about it and let it run its coarse or should I do a major water change? Thanks in advance!

Orange juice is acidic...I would recommend doing a water change just in case. Don't want that staying there and causing problems. Hope everything turns out alright!

+1 to this. Do a water change, check your parameters and keep watching the parameters. There's also a lot of sugar in the OJ which would start breaking down. I don't think it would be immediately toxic (unless the pH dropped), but it would be like overfeeding.

Just be thankful he didn't think it was a fountain and throw some pennies in there..... I'm guessing it's time for some locks on the stand doors.

Yikes! Yeah that wouldn't be good luck at all...and that would cost a pretty penny to replace all that would be lost!

I think I'd just put some simple hasps with small luggage locks..... doesn't have to be complicated, but you want something that positively locks..... they will figure out a latch real quick.

Don't feel bad, you're definitely not the only one this has happened to.... Way back when mine was 2 (20 years ago ), he would put toys in to "give the fishies something to play with" Kids. Gotta love 'em.

I am trying to think of something that can lock but also I want to get in it easily! I have a setup to where my sump I need to get in there multiple times a day. So a hasp does sound like a great idea with a luggage lock. Thanks so much for your thoughts. Oh by the way my oldest is going on 20 so I'm there with you lol...
