1 month after hurricane ike

one month after hurricane ike- all of my aquariums are finally back to normal!
i was out of electricity for 5 days, and i only had 1 battery operated power pump that i had to take turns using in all three of my aquariums.... all of my aquariums had to cycle all over again...but it looks like my water tests have put me in the clear now! which is great, cause my poor fish are starving (i've been feeding very sparingly the past several weeks).
i had one hurricane related casualty (moe, my very first fish, r.i.p), he died when my ammonia levels temporarily spiked.

everyone else seemed fine and healthy the entire time, nobody got red gils or looked sick... but its scarey as hell to cycle tanks while they are fully stocked....and i think i will invest in a generator before next years hurricane season rolls around. at my local LFS they were without power for two weeks, and had to emergency relocate most of their stock. i also hear horror stories of people being without power so long that they lost all their fishies. glad that wasn't me!

living on the gulf coast SUCKS sometimes.

That sounds like a very trying experience.
Sorry to hear about the loss of Moe but thankfully you were able to save everyone else. Glad you made it through!

That sounds awful! I'm glad to hear you only had one casualty, and well done on getting your fish through it! :)

I love living where I do... I can't imagine having to dread next hurricane season. Lol you are all brave souls. The only time I get nervous is when I'm not at home and theres a really big storm, if the power goes out I'm on the phone calling home and making sure that my filters turn back on when the power does.

Glad to hear your tanks are back to normal!!!
