Boo no power! Bad storms in FL.


No power for who knows how long. Been off since I got home at 3. We had some bad storms and a tornado in the area today. Hopefully it comes back on soon!

ooooh yuck! GL!

If it's off all day or more and you've got canister filters, I'd flush them out in a sink or tub before turning them back on- water in there can go rancid pretty quick without any fresh oxygen.

It finally came back on at 10pm. Now my timers are all off lol. Tanks were on at 430am today ><. Should I wait till the time they are normally off then adjust them? Don't wanna run the light cycle for a whole day really.
