    First thing first how have you been? It has been a awhile. How are the kids? How are all the aquatic friends?

    That would be awesome nicki!!

    Few questions :
    Can we get some details on your system? How long has it been cycling and what stages has it been through so far?

    When is the next time you will be down here?

    Hi!!!!!! Man, I have been so crazy busy. My fishy friends have suffered a bit. Reef tank is full of GHA. Got a photography business going and it has just been nonstop. Every weekend has been photoshoots

    Kids are good! Getting big!!! But you know how that is! Iím planning another beach trip soon! The kids didnít get enough Friday when we stopped by. Might just have to make a day trip, but also planning a weekend trip.

    This tank has been up a little over a year. Itís a 210. Been through the entire cycling process, but like I said I just now put some lights on it. Since it only has two clownfish, rocks and sand, didnít feel like taking the time to set up the lights until one on my reef tank caught fire 🤣I need some dummies.. I mean testers...Test Dummies!!!I need some dummies.. I mean testers...Test Dummies!!!

    How did the light catch on fire? Sorry hopefully nothing bad came out of it!! Did it actually catch fire or just short? I may be able to rebuild it for you?

    What kind of equipment are you running?Skimmer, reactor, fuge?

    Oh no, full on fire billowing out from under the canopy. Miraculously we caught it before it spread from the light. No clue how it happened. No warning, breaker didnít flip, or anything. No lives lost that I know of. Luckily we were already prepared to replace those lights etc so we donít need anything else built. My husband works a lot so the canopy/cabinet/bookshelf/desk that heís building over and around the 210 is a slow process.



    Iím running a kid to a friends house so Iíll have to get back to you on brands of equipment. But I have a sump, skimmer, fuge

    Yes maíam. I was napping and the hubs was working upstairs. He came down for a second and saw black smoke pouring out of the formal dining room. At first we had no clue where it was coming from, then we opened the canopy, and there were flames. All I could think to do was unplug everything and start throwing water on it.

    Very scary and very very fortunate
