Fellow reefers ,today was one of the saddest days that I have ever experienced.
I cannot describe and explain in words how a power cut has ripped me a part.
The fact that I lost 20 fish so far including all my rare fish hurts me even more.
For now I am doing my best to save the rest of my system which means I am still not sure what has survived.
I will post updates on my progress.

A huge thanks for the reefers who help me out last night.
It's such a great feeling to know that others cares
just as much as I do.
Before i knew it 250L of sea water was dropped off and they started to-do a water change .I was still busy planning around what to-do when they made up my mind for me.
Seachem stability was thrown into the system to help breakdown any ammonia, nitrite and nitrate.Ammonia pads was also placed in the sump.Wayne Morrisson personly brought these 2 products over from his shop and decided to help out as well.Once again thanks!
The dead stock that we could remove we took out.
About 15 or so fishes are still missing
The sps for now looks ok ,but i will access the situation a bit later .Early this morning i did another 150L waterchange hoping that nothing spikes or gets out of control.

Yes i do have a gennie,but it's of no use if i dont know about the powerfailure.
I would say the power went out around 8:30 am.
It came back on 15min after i arrived home at around 6pm.
