Ok quick update! We have been really preparing the tank before we go on vacation!

Starting Saturday night, we will be leaving to our beach house for a little over 2 weeks. Thankfully the house is only 1hr away so i can make trips back to tend the tank.

So far the fish will have someone to feed them/top off every other day for the most part. I have like 7 or 8 gallons of R/O, so that should last me about a week right?

Also, the chiller is running perfectly so i dont have to worry about the heat either!

Thanks to Animal Chin, he has helped me in figuring out how to setup a webcam in front of the tank. Now, i can be walking along the beach and say "hey..i wonder how my tank is doin!" and then proceed to watch my tank via my Iphone. Thanks again man.

So, is there anything im missing? I will do a pwc before i leave, and another a week later when i plan to drive back down! Any other safety precautions i should make, all of you who have done this before?

Thanks!

Hi FOUND IT I shall have a long look back through all the pages,its a popular thread
Now to your question - about before going on vacation
1 - check and clean all filters {if necessary}
2 - check your protein skimmer is clean and working properly {not sure if you are using one?}
3 - Cut down on your feeding a week before going on vacation {only a little - say 10%}
4 - do a couple of small water changes and check the water parameters.
5 - makes sure the person feeding the fish knows where the food is and do not leave to much feed available in case they think - 'just a little more wont hurt..........'
6 - I do not add any livestock of any description six weeks prior to going on vacation.
7 - leave a contact number - just in case!
9 - Enjoy your VACATION
