    @vleis - looking good - now that's what I call surround sound!!
    Is the light attached to perspex or glass - when I test fitted mine to the perspex top of my back chamber it felt unstable and leaned forward?

    Been a nerve wrecking week people.....

    Thursday: Heater uppluged some way & temp dropped from 25.5 to 22.7 & i got a fright....

    Friday morning

    6:30am : Power in the whole Vaalpark was out till 9 because of a rat in the BUSBAR in the town transformer..

    9am: Power come on & im relieved cuz temp dropped ti 22.8 again, yay now it can go back to 25.5... Wife says everything is fine

    14:30pm: Wife calls me distressed say the power tripped & the tank temp is on 18.8deg (my heart stops). She cant get the house power on again cuz it keeps ok tripping, so she plugs each item in to se what is tripping the power & see my heater is blown to pieces in the sump at the back... luckily i had a spare heater & she commected it up, set the temp to 23deg. Got home & immediately do a 50% WC & dose bac...

    I thought im gonna come gome to a dead & crashed tank...

    All is back to normal today & doesn’t look like there will be any short term damage.....

    SPS all got polyp extension again & SEEM happy.

    Ill throw a bit of pics

    Eish, what a story. I found corals handle colder temps well, fish not so much. Was in wild coast last week where there are lots of lps corals like favia and acansthrea, and a few acropora that I saw, and water temp was 21C, probably a lot colder in middle of winter. Just glad your tanks turned out ok, could have been much worse.
