    :lol:

    Doubt it is your phones fault when the battery is flat :whistling:

    But yeah, I do understand your frustration. Nowadays one has to buy backup power first and then start a tank ;)

    Get yourself some 30 percent hydrogen peroxide and use 15ml per 100 litres of water every four hours after the failure. Add it slowly and mix it in with your hands to distribute it throughout the tank. Dont add it near corals. It breaks down into harmless water and oxygen which has saved my bacon a few times

    But, in this country, you cant have a tank without some sort of plan in place hey. Hope the livestock pull through bud.
