I HAVE POWER!!
I have lights on all tanks, but one. I've been working on my 75g first. I have the XP4 and CO2 connected to it running. I'm doing a complete change out of the water in the tank right now. Even though I cleaned out the canister, it was a mess to remove the hoses and CO2 reactor, pH controller, etc. to get it all cleaned out. So I emptied the water from the lines and reactor, allowed the tank water to run through it (pushing crud into the tank), and now I'm changing the water in the tank so remove that crud.
I've been able to identify all fish except the torpedo barb I knew already died. I found my apisto, but he's looking terrible. He's so bad that when I was draining the water, I found him stuck to the side of the glass!
I don't think he'll make it, but things are back on the upside now so if he can just hang on a little longer, conditions will be greatly improved.
Plants took a hit, but only a few look really bad. This definitely solved my algae issues! Now I just need to get those plants back to doing their job, they'll help with the cycling problem.
I am sooooo thrilled to get electricity back! I wasn't expecting it until Monday, given the report posted. So it was a huge surprise to have it turned on today! A huge WONDERFUL, FANTASTIC, INCREDIBLE surprise!
Oh, and with the electricity, I now also have internet!!
I'm not happy, am I?
