    Im looking into buying a battery back up for my system before this Hurricane hits South Florida. My question is this: I know the most important thing is to have the pumps running but what about my lights? I'm sure if I run my lights it will kill the battery faster. In case of power failure...

    Hi all, long time no see :) It was a crazy summer so I wasn't on the boards much, but things didn't really get hairy with my tank until I made the big move from Toronto to Nova Scotia in the middle of October-- over 1000 miles of driving. I decided to move everything (lps, softies and fish)...

    and Ruh again Hello. I'm a member of reefs.org and I've noticed that nearly everyone there seems to be against deed sand beds and plenum systems. I was wondering if this is the opinion that dominates that particular website or if deep sand beds are officially a passed fad. A few questions...

    My family and I recently moved to Hilton Head Island, SC and I'm trying to plan for the eventual power outage. I had planned on just buying a gasoline powered generator until I learned this: during a mandatory evacuation (hurricane) all electricity to the island is turned off, and I having...

    I'm thinking of those thin, silver 'thermal' blankets they sell for emergencies in the car or camping section of department stores. They are designed to keep body heat in, would they keep the heat in a tank if needed? I was ok with the blackout because I have battery operated air pumps that...

    We had a power outage today of 1 hour and 15 minutes. The tank looks ok but it really started to smell after about one hour of no water movement. What is the longest a tank should go without circulation? What happens? Should I do a water change? Advice?
