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!
