I don't recall if you have coral or not...but in a short term power outage you aren't worried about the lighting, you are more worried about keeping the water circulated to keep oxygen in and CO2 out. My tank went a full day without the light without issue.

Yes I have coral... I turned on both power heads with the generator we have. Will that be enough? Or should I somehow get the return pump to work?

Don't worry about the stump. Just keep water moving in your display. Even one of them would be beneficial, but both is better. Make sure the water surface is being broken for as much oxygen possible.

Hey guys so we got a huge generator to see if the tank can run off of it but for some reason when I plug the skimmer or the return to the generator it will not work. Everything else is fine but that. It has plenty of power but no joy in it working. Wondering if I just fried my skimmer and return pump... Good thing I have a back up skimmer pump. Problem is I don't have a back up on my return pump. So far I almost lost my QT tank. I forgot about it and just got it hooked up. Poor copper band had no surface agitation. :/ he looks ok... But he went a few hours without it. Tank is okay. Don't want to risk the lights blowing out on me so I'll wait until tonight to plug it in.

Haven't shared a FTS lately... So here it is... I have two clown fish, three chromis, a blue damsel and a yellow tang. After the disaster that wiped out my tank I am happy to report that I'm still in love with this hobby! Wish I could get a bigger tank!!

So far RO/DI should be here tomorrow and wondering what type of salt to use... Any suggestions?
