My extension power plug with a white strap holding it, there was another strap below and yest nite while pulling out 1 of the plug broke the bottom strap and thus causing the top strap to hit the 2nd plug OFF (which was my cannister filter)

This evening came back found 4 ranchus floating upwards, 2 was gasping for air.

Careless mistake and I didnt have any airstone inside. sad.gif

I have a suggestion. Install a rainbar and place it above water level. Not only will doing so reduce the current generated, the noise also gives you an audible indication that the system is running.

Brudder, buy a AC/DC pump......accident have happens more then once to me liao... one time was my wife that pulls out the plug because she was using it for something and forgot abt it, another time was maid. In both cases, the sump pump stop and canisiter stop.... at least the ac/dc pump was working... so my fish was saved.

I'm sure you're not alone in feeling this way but there's really no need to express it publicly. Your one liner bump up the thread and many are annoyed by it. Please refrain from posting such and only write when you really need to contribute something to a thread.

Thanks.

Sorry hor, i have a naive question.

Its hard for me to believe that an overnite filter shutdown can kill GFs. Unless it is over-populated, shouldnt the fish survive the 'short' suffering?
Will an overnite power trip messed up the water parameter terribly? shouldnt the green-water or good bacteria hold off the ammonia rise (or nitrites and nitrates)?

Can someone explain to me?
