Hurrican Rita killed my coral
I live in Houston and lost power for a about 5 hours and I'm assuming the lack of flow and power killed it. It was a rhodactis coral and is the only invert in my tank. My fish are doing fine.
I was wondering if:
a) the lack of power for a few hours is enough to kill inverts or is this an isolated case?
b) what do you do in power outage situations to prolong the life of the tank.
