They're going to shut down large portions of the grid nationwide Nov 13 and 14th. Will you be prepared to keep your reef on life support?
I will get some battery aerators, but I'm wondering....for my moderately stocked 55 gallon softy tank (with barely any corals) (seven small fish like chromis, tailspot blenny, pygmy angel, gramma, banggai cardinal, and two clowns)....is there any way to 'wean' it off oxygen? I mean, to lessen it's oxygen consumption? Could I remove one powerhead and let some of the bacteria die off and see what happens?
Could one hypothetically keep a certain kind of setup in a 55g without requiring any power at all over the long term? What would that system look like? Has anyone set up an 'off grid' aquarium, and what would that look like?
