Well 36 hrs down. Everything still kicking. Halide is on right now. Temp holding stable. Gonna leave it on for maybe 4-6 hours and then off. Tank maxed out today at 80.2. No ice needed yet but sunday its supposed to be 100 so im sure ill need ice for me and the tanks.

Having a problem with the skimmer. It wont start up properly. I think the airline may be clogged. Ill have to fix in the morning so its offline till then. My house is so bright right now with the halide on, im probably attracting every thief in the area lol. Still no sleep, i might work on getting some this morning for a few.

These fish better love me after all i do for them i swear. My 2 year old daughter has less needs haha.

Thanks ill have to find myself one or two of those, however dont think my corals would make it 8 days without light so probably would still need the generator.

Had my halide on for 4 hours last night/ this morning. Everything still lookin perfect

Yeah that sounds like it would work pretty well. If i thought it has any chance of getting here by saturday i would order one, but no trucks are moving.

First death. Basement tank, peppermint shrimp and some snails, stirred water real good, got a super long *** extension cord to run down there today. No sign of the gramma.

Hopefully i can save what is left, need to make up some water asap.

My 29g mixed reef is stilling doing great. No bleaching or color loss and livestock is good. Skimmer is back online. Got an updated estimate for power return of Saturday July 7th Midnight wow
