And another downer update. The purple nana is bleaching and not doing well now. I'm thinking that the power being out had the nitrates/phosphates not being exported and stressed the acros out too much. Not sure, I'll be keeping an eye on it. Not really sure what else to do for it at this point.

Lol yeah, not many weather issues in pa other than snow, but still, if it did this to your tank...

Shrug. I was less concerned about a battery backup and more concerned about saving up my money and buying a house with township water. If I'd be in a situation where I'd be without power for days I do have access to a generator as a family member owns a radio station. We borrowed it 4 years ago when we didn't have power for 3 days after a storm.

No I haven't, just because the end of my work week is overwhelming. Thoughts on this event just being a catalyst to an underlying issue here...lighting. I have 2 radions over the tank. I have a pink domicornis and my new birds nest about 24 inches below them. The tips are...odd. They have no polyp extention and the color is faded. Yet, I have a green domicornis in the sandbed that just keeps growing. Even though I keep turning down the lights...could it be too much light and all of this weeks events just been too much for them?

The lighting could be a factor, I know alot of people have problems when switching over to LEDs but once they get things acclimated to it they grow well.
