    Freshwater peeps?

    I have a 55 gallon with a large gold fish, a gourami, and 4 penguin tetras and 29 gallon with about dozen neon tetras and some panda and pygmy cory cats. They were living in my 75 gallon tank before I kicked them out to make my SW tank. 😁

    Help ID algae or seaweed!?!

    hard to tell with the blueish light, you could turn up the white for a better pic but it might be sea lettuce.

    Tank turnover......baffled

    I think what you are getting is head loss and the rate of water going into your tank is far less than 3000 gph and your overflows drains can easily handle what you are throwing at it, from what I found at 1 inch drain with a 3 foot drop at full siphon is about 1200 GPH, I am going to confirm with my plumber neighbor on that and I also found this calculator at Reef Centeral http://www.reefcentral.com/index.php/head-loss-calculator and putting in a pump that does 3000 gph based on your turns and pipe diameter, your are actually getting close to 1300 gph into the tank.

    Planned power outage

    That is good to hear. Trying get the settings straight on it. It shut off for a few minutes thinking we were not home. Will need to turn off those features until the house gets cooled down.

    Planned power outage

    My wife emailed me today that our thermostat died today. It got up to 84 in our house and my 75 gallon tank only gained a degree. Plus side is I was able to get a Nest which I have wanted for a long time.

    I think you will be fine temp wise. It takes a lot to heat up water and unless you are living in a tent (which I doubt 😀) your house wont get that warm. If you have AC you could turn it down Sunday night and you could lower the temp on your tank so the water is a little cooler.
