After reading 2 threads about mishaps and what not I decided to go out and get a XL Rubbermaid tub. I also placed an order online for the following.

Backup filter AC110
Backup heater AqueonPro 200 watt
Purigen 10 bags
Chemi pure elite 2 full units
Poly fill 2 bags
Nano power head 425
Prime 2 liters
Baking soda
Epsom salt
Kosher salt
4 battery operated air pumps


I know it may sound crazy but after hearing first hand I figured better safe then sorry. I made some good overtime Suomi figured why not. I'm ready for other emergencies with flashlights, bottled water etc so why not be ready incase something with my fish went wrong.

Now I do have a question. What are some good meds to have on hand incase something happens and I can't get to LFS right away. Also what have you done to become prepared and are you ready?

Ya ya ya you fixed it should have quoted ya that way I had proof.

Some of these also the flakes are good to keep laying around.

I have found its better to have it on hand like your saying. Because things always.happen at the worst times.

The flakes are good to have around and the powder of
Metronidazole Powder 100%.

They do a good job on the site listing what each one is for. Check it out
