Thumbs down Hello Isaac :(



Hope it doesen't hit us. I have to move everything in from my balcony they're probably going to make me move the mud bucket too (24g).

Can 100 mph wind blow over a 250lb bucket filled with water and sand?

I would have to say that it's possible but will depend on the dimensions of it. If it is sitting high up then there is a good chance.

I really don't think it would tip over, although I live in Kansas so I have not been able to experience any hurricane force winds. That being said there have been a few times when the weather has been pretty bad and we have gotten occasional straight winds that have been around around 80mph.

I would be worried about something hitting and breaking/cracking the container though.

Just cloudy skies, calm before the storm. I brought *EVERYTHING* inside, took all freakin morning, but I did manage to make it to the planted aquarium store too to get $50+ of fish... 8 Boraras Brigittae, and 6 Emerald Dwarf Rasboras, and 1 lone Boraras Brigittae that was not as colorful.

Glad you got everything inside! What about the bucket? Hopefully everything goes alright down there.

The bucket meow:



Siphoned half the water and was still a pain to lift. I had no idea it had so much shrimp!

I think quite a few shrimp went in the drain, I really didn't notice until the bucket was half empty and I heard popping sounds of writhing shrimp in the sink

Just neos. I wouldn't try others in TDS 400-600.

I know the guys near the gulf usually get it bad during huricane season though the weather seems pretty awesome the rest of the time. Good luck over the next few days and on house closing. Its a pretty awesome next step and you'll likely have a 120g experiment or outdoor pond on the horizon

We traditionally have the extreme four seasons in the north east so keeping livestock here (plus the racoons) isn't as viable. Any pool of water would be a potential breeding bed for these asian tiger mosquitos too... But I digress. G/L dude.
