JBJ NanoCube Ballst UP IN SMOKE!!!

Well ... my 1st official problem with my JBJ!!!

I was sitting around last night watching some pre-season football and I heard this "POP-Fizz" and then I saw the ballast for my 12gal. deluxe go up in smoke! Luckily I was home and could pull the cord before any major damage occurred!!!!!

Can you imagine if I had not been home what kind of damage could have happened ... can we say LAW-SUIT!!!!

Anyway, I have a replacement ordered for overnight shipping and JBJ says they will replace my burned out one, so I will have 2 at that point ... I just don't know if I trust them while I'm not home!

BAD thing is .. that my corals are now without lights until tuesday. I have some zoo's, a ricordea shroom and some GSP ... do you think they will be ok without light for approx. 72 hours or no???? What do I do?


God grant me the serenity to accept the thing's I can not change, the courage to change the thing's I can and the wisdom to know the difference!
