got home from work today...attempted to turn the light on in my kitchen tank when i walked in the door. nothing. then i noticed the filters werent running and the temp was down to 66. uhoh
checked the circuit breakers. none of them had tripped. somehow the outlet went bad. the tank is a 20 gallon long and sits on one of my kitchen counters.
i quickly emptied out 15 gallons of water. picked up the tank and moved it to a different counter/outlet. then filled it back up. all the fish seem fine. the temp is back up to 75. dont like to swing temps that fast, but the fish seem fine.
not sure how long the power was out to the tank. i know it was running last night. so it was less than 24 hours. i hate the spot it is in now...so i will have to put on my electrician hat and figure out what is wrong with the outlet. will maybe replace it with a gfci outlet, although i was plugged into a power strip with a breaker, anyway.
