  8. Electrical outlet out for a little too much corrosion and it must have sparked and caught fire. We caught it fast so damage was minimal and 90% of the frag tank corals were fine. Just lost the Mag Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  9. I did have one I was treating and getting ready for sale but after I had that fire in my fish room it died :( So now I’m back to just the one in my display. I’ll hopefully be QTing some more in the near future. [emoji1696] Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  10. I few years old. But that shed gets a ton of water evaporation. It is home to my frag system and a koi pond filtration system. It’s a rough atmosphere in the shed. So I’m pretty confident that corrosion was the culprit. Shed wasn’t intended to be a fish room so it doesn’t have the best layout for frag tanks haha. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  11. I plan to do the same. Out of sight, out of mind. So an audio alarm would be helpful to grab your attention. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  12. Thanks everyone, I was very, very, very blessed that it was caught early and didn’t burn the whole building down. So far it looks like damage was minimal. Just need to replace some insulation, 2x4s and chip board. And try to get the smell of smoke out of the shed. Going to be replacing all the outlets in the shed and add an anti corrosive gel to all socket connections. Hopefully that helps make sure this never happens again. Also it’s amazing that the frag tank is totally fine. Skimmer running and everything during the fire (I’ve since shut it off). The whole room was full of smoke. Kinda crazy that the skimmer wasn’t pulling in all that crap and pumping it into the tank. Definitely got very lucky with the whole situation. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

  14. Well I can honestly say In all the reef planning I never planned for this. One of the electrical outlets in my fish room burst into flames yesterday. Nothing was plugged into it and the outlet hadn’t been used for about 6 weeks. I’m still unsure what caused the fire but the leading theory is corrosion. Thankfully it was caught before too much damage was done. I am also lucky that the fish shed is detached from the main house. I wanted to share this so other reefers could start planning for how to avoid electrical fires in there fish rooms. I was very luck and I count my blessings. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
