I had to come back to the saltie forum just to see how you made out. I'm glad your power stayed on and your fishies are ok! Take care!

Yes, very lucky. We just received word that there are still 8 people missing from our Houston facility ( Sigma Corporation - Cream Ridge, NJ )and half of the warehouse got washed away. They are without power, gas, and food is pretty limited.

The remains of hurricane Ike hit Ohio on Sunday, we had 70mph and most of Ohio is still without power ( who would have thought it would be this bad here?). I cant imagine what it was like down south . Ours was out from 7pm-4am on Sunday. It was enough to send my ammonia pretty high.

Luckily after about a 30% water change everythings back to normal and survived just fine. I had fed a little more than normal that morning though, but wow! Never would have guessed. I'd add to that advice by saying if you think you may possibly lose power, do a very light feeding if at all before the storm hits. I would agree with the previous advice too, by having either a generator or at least a battery opperated pump.

hope its over for this season!

We got a battery operated pump, fed the fishes before hand, and took all advice we recieved from here,and everything went smooth concerning the tank. Still alot of power off in surrounding towns ,were the only town with gas, from here to houston, and here to austin,Im worried about my fish store,dont know how there doing. louiseberry
