    He is in Norwood.

    He just phoned me to say that he has managed to get another gennnie going but doesn't know if it will last, his one and only fish, a yellow tang, is dead, there's also dead bristleworms and microstars all over his tank, the skimmer is just a mountain of foam at the moment, so things don't look too good. When he gets home from work this evening he might still need to get his corals out of the tank, so we'll wait to hear from him a bit later. Thanks to everyone so far.

    Thank you very much for your offer Gemini, I will pass it on to him, he is just totally stuck at work at the moment, he managed to get away for about 2 hours this morning just to try and get the gennie running, but now there's nothing much he can do until he gets home.

    Viper357, please tell Rory to look at purchasing a inverter and hook up a car battery to it. its cheaper and lasts 12-24 hours. When its done you just replace the battery out with a new one while the other charges somewhere. (Maby from his geni?)

    Viper - I also had a SMS back from Crispin. He says that he is unfortunately in East London at the moment on some farm in the rural areas.... BUT - he is returning either tonight or tomorrow - he will pop by Rory on his way back from the airport.....
