We had a temporary power failure Monday caused by a construction error by the electric company. I lost about 1 ft of water (25 gal
) due to back pressure causing my canister filter to leak. I will do a bench test on the filter to see exactly where the water came from. It is on an Eheim Professional II. This model has an air intake and a pulsating outflow system. I used some battery operated air pumps I use for fishing to get O2
to the tank during the outage.
All life is OK, except the coralline on the back of the tank. My question is, will the coralline that was exposed grow back? I know eventually it will be covered again, but will the cells that are dead grow back themselves. Should I scrape off the now white coralline? Hard to believe that after only 11 hrs of not being submerged, the coralline is dead already.
