How about Mother Nature? I think she's more to blame.

Coral Beauty - $70
2 Firefish - $40
Coral Banded Shrimp - $40 ($200 if you included the babies that were lost)

Total - $150

Not close to your losses

Might start saving for a chiller, the drop-in-chiller sounds good, don't have much space to play with as it's a hooded tank and doesn't have a sump.

My protein skimmer pump is not working propperly either - the power keeps cutting to the entire house when I switch it on - it works for 2 seconds and then the power trips... so I guess you could add another $70 to that

BUT on a lighter side, I am seeing new specs of coraline algae popping up around the tank!!

Try and run your skimmer on a different outlet. You may be drawing to much current off of one plug and this is why your breaker is tripping.

Great idea Thincat!!Will try that when I get home today. I'll see if I can an extension cord that goes to another circuit.

My LSF said something may have got "wet". But the whole pump is submersible... AND the power board is a good meter or so away from the tank with a drip loop.
