My mag12 went out last nite. Impeller broke. Got one in the mail today.
In the mantime, Dummy, (that'll be me) got a small rio60 for the fuge to keep it alive. Sexy shrimp, snails, 30 lbs of LR
or so. All kinds of growth, worms, limpets etc. Turned the lights out and let the PHs above keep everything oxygenated.
Got home early to take care of it and was greeted by the smell of death.
FORGOT TO TURN THE HEATER OFF!!!!!
Got mostly all the water out of the fuge. Miracle mud base and 1/2" sand. And the rock. And dead (but small) critters.
My thought is to fill the fuge with fesh SW
. But what about the tank above. SHould I take the chance on re-circulating in a couple of hours??? Maybe make more water ASAP and get ready for another PWC
tomorrow?? 35g now and another tomorrow????
Oh my! Having a housefull of company beginning tomorrow. Sigh!
