    So I went to work and I guess my protein skimmer overflowed dripping on my power bar which then shorted...Came home and the temp was at 72 F...I usually keep it at 79. I have 2 clowns, a damsel and a clown goby...will they be ok?? I'm guessing the temp dropped down to 72 over a few hours...I've been gone for 7 hours. I put food in but the clowns are swimming near the top and won't touch the food.
    29 gallon
    -1 yellow tail damsel
    -1 yellow clown goby
    - mated pair of clowns

    72f is fine... and they should survive just fine.

    but they might be missing oxygen.
    get those pumps running asap to circulate that water.

    moving.. so temporarily out of SW :b8:
    planning next tank, possibly 60x30x20 on 2x plasma.

    i agree, if the pumps and skimmer stopped and they're swimming at the surface, they need more oxygen. the temperature change isn't ideal but if your fish are in good health / not stressed ,they should be able to handle it.

    good luck
