    Big "Hi" from down under (Australia) :wavey:, I'm a brand new member at thereeftank.com (first post!) and I'm totally stoked about this year's build-off! I intend to bring a unique tank to the competition both in terms of livestock and hardware setup. My main skills are in electronics design...

    Hey guys... Here's what I found when I got home from a weekend away...the GFCI plug had blown and the whole system shut down. I'm not really sure how it happened. Any ideas? I have a Rio1100 300gph pump, a protein skimmer, a 300W heater, the lights that came with the tank, and a power head...

    We are in the middle of some real storms, Mountain winds exceeding 150MPH (I think that is right around 109 MPH that we start calling them hurricanes) add to that some snow and rain and we are having lots of fun. I have had two short power outages so far and my inverter and battery powered air...

    So we lost power today from about 4:30am to 900am. My tank went from the normal temp to 74. I know this isnt terrible but there is the fact the water wasnt being airiated also. I wraped the top of my tank(24g aquapod) in tin foil and plastic wrap to trap the heat in. I left a opening for gas...

    Couldn't sleep so decided to throw up a couple of pictures from the week. Coffee is on as well. The Golden Eagle was grazed by a potshot, then hit the ground and about froze to death. They brought it in and Cynthia and the crew fixed it up, and then it went off to the raptor center. The...

    We lost power for about an hour yesterday and when it came back on, my acros had better polyp extension than I had ever seen. Leaves me to wonder why. Is my flow too much? Lighting is 3 - 250w 10k MH

    I put all my corals and fish in a super big rubbermaid tub and I am going to buy a new tank tomorrow to many scratches. While I'm at it I am replacing the sand to. Will this create to big of a problem if I use live sand and most of my original water. I already have had one big disaster this week...

    anyone using them? for instance an APC 540 watt output backup used in the event of a LONG power failure (which we have typically here in the winter after icestorms) how lond would it last for say 2-3 power heads and airpump to keep fish alive and a seperate unit for lighting? i would have to...

    We had a horrible storm last night, which knocked out power for some time. Luckily, I had a power inverter, deep cycle battery, battery powered air pumps with back up batteries, and flashlights with back up batteries, So everything was fine and I was able to run the whole sump system off the...

    but after a 7 hours the lights came back on.......tomorow im going to get a generator. My corals are bad closed up, the temp stayed good. and I sluhed the water around with my hands. The fish look good but alot of the corals are small though. But it might just be becuase they didnt get there...

    I am probably gonna be moving my tank in a few weeks and need to know the best way to do it. Thought I would bag the livestock individually, put the lr in bins with water and a wet towel covering them. My sb is only 9 months old and really don't want to ditch it because I have a lot of cool...

    Well, I have joined "tank crash" group. My power went out at 9 am today and was just restored at 11-30 pm and temperature outside was almost 90F. I was away all day and came back just to find my chromie on the floor all dried up, both clowns moving very slowly. My Lyretail Anthias is no longer...

    ok i am looking into getting a 24g aquapod. I always wanted to keep some sps but never have. i dont know too much about their lighting needs but figured that they need more then the standered 24g aquapod lighting. so i looked around and found that Liveaquaria.com has a 24g aquapod with a 150w...

    Ok...I need some advise... Lost power...no heat...I am going to be screwed... If I can get about 2 battery powered air pumps for the tank will I be ok for a while? How much heat can I lose?
  19. The THINK Tank
    It would seem to me that getting oxygen to the water is more important than simply flow, and that an airstone would be more valuable, than a powerhead WITHOUT a venturi. So ideally, simply backing up your return pump would accomplish both. But im curious what you thoughts are specifically...

    since i'm sitting here through tornadic weather right now i have a few questions that have crossed my mind. i live out in the boonies, so the power does go out occasionally. usually not for more than an hour or so, but last year it was out for about 3-4 days. 1st?, how long can the power be off...
