Power Restored! *UPDATE*

About 10:00 p.m I got my power back on. This was 6 full days without it. Preliminary tank checks are showing a loss of about 4 heads of my frogspawn and my rose anemone is gone. All the fish seem to be ok, just a little freaked out over lights being back on. I was majorly concerned about my clam, but it opened right up and responded to the lights, so I am hoping it is going to be fine. I think I will just leave lights on for 4 hours tonight, then 6 tomorrow and increase through the weekend. Hopefully nothing else dies in this process.

Thanks for all the support you guys have given me over the last few days, I would have gone bonkers without it for sure.

I'm glad you have power again! Six days without it is rough, for the fish and you too. Sorry about the corals and the anemone. I hope the other corals and fish are recovering ok. The gradual introduction back to the light sounds good to me. How are the eels doing? Good luck!

Great to hear that you have juice again. I have to echo the sentiment that it is amazing that you have had as few losses as you have.

Yippee...great to hear that you have POWER! Sorry to hear that you suffered some losses but to look on the bright side, you know that it could have been much worse.

PS - Don't forget the party that was proposed.

Woo hoo. Congratulations Hara. I'm glad to hear that most of your headache from the storm is now over. And again, really amazing you made it with such few losses.

Best of luck with the rest of the tank.

Yay! That's great news Hara. Sorry some the frogspawn perished but there is still hope for the anemone. Hopefully it will yet come out of the rocks and be fine. Awesome news on the clam. Good luck with the rest of your tank. Glad your losses were minimal and things can get back to normal for you.

Great news! Sounds like you kept the damage to a minimum. Give the frogspawn some time and the anemone may sho up again.

Some people are like slinkies...they serve no real purpose yet can still bring a smile to your face when you push them down the stairs!:p
Have a great day! Brian
