I'm really glad I don't have fish yet! I'm hoping that keeping my media wet will be enough to keep the bacteria viable until the power comes back on, which is about all I can do. Good luck everyone!

I live in puerto rico. Was lucky enough that it was only a tropical storm when it hit u's but it's change in direction really thru us all of. I was without light for about 12 hoursish but I agitated the water here and there and kept the media wet and the tank parameters when I tested afterwards. Goodluck to you guys.

I'm thinking I'll be okay. My temp shouldn't get too low and I can easily keep it from getting too hot and I'll do water changes if need be.
Good luck!! I hope everyones fish will be okay!

Last hurricane to directly hit NYC....1821. No subways, tunnels, electric, etc.

Plus, there is a new moon on the 28th so tides will be higher than normal to begin with....

Does anyone know what Monday is? The answer is a little spooky

Hydrogen Peroxide For Dissolved Oxygen - by Dr. Erik Johnson Hydrogen peroxide can be used to increase the dissolved oxygen in the system. H202 + H20 ----------> H20 + 02 Simply use 1/2 cup per hundred gallons. I prefer, however, to apply peroxide in a typical spray bottle, squirting it forcefully under the surface of the water into tanks and vats in trouble, I use 60 squirts per 100 gallons. What you will see is the fish will leave the surface, and swim about as if there was no dissolved oxygen deficit. The time for this to occur is approximately one hour. The benefits are seen for a full 4 hours. The hydrogen peroxide to use is drugstore 3% peroxide. It's great in emergencies. If applied directly to the fish, or applied directly to their water in an undiluted form, gill damage could result, so apply it away from the fish.


just thought id post this here!
