Power outage

Recommended Posts

No power or heat in NE PDX for last 7 hours. Tank temp has fallen to 71. I've resorted to putting tea candles on top of sump to warm bottom of tank. Yikes 1068837c8d806da975d9cba43a2b177d.jpg

How cold can the tank get before I start to be in real trouble?

My tank has gotten down to 65 and bounced back. Just remember to bring the temp up slowly.

Power back up???

Just now. But of course, I knocked my return pump adaptor into the sump while messing around in the dark. So now return pump isn't working

 

Don't suppose anyone has one of these laying around?

What is the pump that goes to?

Amazon is sending me a replacement which should get here on Monday. (I merely asked for the adaptor but I guess they're replacing the whole pump). I said I damaged it... but ok. Gotta love that company.

 

3 days of sump being offline should be ok I would think...

I've got a spare jabao 12000 new in box if that will help you out...but I agree that as long as you've got circulation and heat in the tank you'll be fine with no sump for a few days.
