Went on vacation. We had a house sitter that is not an experienced Hobbiest. Everything went fine. No casualties and algae issues.
There was a big storm on July 6. Power went out a couple of times but nothing more than a minute. I was lucky some local hobbiest had power out for up to 14hours. I had been meaning to get my UPS battery replaced. This is a eye opener so getting that taken care of ASAP.
This week tank maintenance:
