Sorry to hear about the troubles, Ke, hope your generator comes in on schedule and your critters are alright.
I just heard from Michael, who says the outage at his place has already cost him all his kribs and multies
- apparently his angels are okay, though. My condolences for the losses. Poor little fishies :'(
If anyone is facing imminent loss of aquatic life and still has no power, let me know. Since we have power, our generator is freed up for emergency use if someone needs it.
As I'm sure everyone's learning, it's best to buy a generator when there's no imminent threat of a storm - people panic when an outage is looming in the near future, and the stores sell out really quickly. By the time the outage actually occurs, it's far to late to think about getting one. It doesn't even take a big generator to power a small fishroom - a cheap one provides more than enough electricity.
