So last night, our power went out. The first thing that went through my head was' oh crap! My pump, heater and light on my tank is off.' I have read horror stories on here about power outages and tanks. I called the power company and was told I would be in the dark for a few hours. Saturdays are usually not designated PWC
days, unless my levels are off. So I made the decision to go ahead and do a 30%PWC
and spot clean. Doing a water change in the dark is not the smartest thing in the world, I had more water on the floor than in the tank. The power came back on right as I was finishing up and I was only in the dark fir about 45 minutes. Everyone is still alive.
