    Have a plan for possible power outage!

    I have a battery backup and bat air pump. 10 gallon tank. Currently my hydor powerhead and lights are connected. in summer I would have a cooling fan connected - but my tank is in the basement so its easy to keep cool. My husband retreived the bat backup from work. we have two, I plan to get the other one with new bats to plug my mums tank into. we don't get power outages for long, 20 minutes to two hours at worst. mostly its flickers.

    Mother's Day! Slow dino recovery

    It looks worlds better - I am gonna carry treatment for a full 30 days I have to admit, I am not sure how dino-x will affect the cycle, if I should carry on with cycling the tank - the issue happened within 10 days of setup, apparently dinos were likely part of the problem that crashed the tank. I am not sure if they caused the snail to die - which caused a cascade effect, but could easily be.

    Mother's Day! Slow dino recovery

    Zoas melted, the GSP so far has survived - I suppose it would be easier to pull it down, and start anew. but I haven't given up on the GSP. Dino-X and a UV steriliser are being used in tandem. dinos don't seem to be as spread as before, and seem to be dying off.

    Mother's Day! Slow dino recovery

    if this treatment doesn't work, I'll pull down and sterilise the tank and equipment - then restart. Outside of the struggling zoas, Only green star polyps and a leather survived. I can likely remove both and dip them or ditch them - and fully restart.

  7. I traded in my leather coral, kept a tiny frag moved the gorg to the back, trimmed back the trumpet a little. The colours are a bit off. I tried to reduce the blue with a orange overlay in photoshop. I got a Scionix Salinity tester today. Oh and Happy Birthday to me :3

    Hyposalinity Advice Needed

    I did hypo and was quite successful with my fish. They didn't object to the drop in salinity and the increase - I did hte increase slower than my decrease.
  10. I got this UV steriliser as a backup treatment, but I want to know, does the indicator light come on when the light is bad, or turn off when the light is bad? the instructions indicate it should be on, but my brand new out of hte box device does not show that its on. Vids I watched also seem to show it not on - any one can weigh in?

    Is a UV Sterilizer Overkill on a Nano

    I was wanting a small UV steriliser to help combat a dino outbreak in tandem with other treatments. I may just pick up the one for my IM to use from time to time,, but my mums new tank setup just had a monster dino outbreak - so I want to use it as an occasional treatment (also I could use it or my summertime pond setup) so aside of the IM desktop, what other tiny UV sterilisers are there out there? the tank in question is about 4.5 g
  13. Things might be a little out of hand - the tank is three this year.
