    Leaving on vacation... all bases covered?

    Hey all,
    As many of you know, I'm leaving on a vacation in a few days. I'll be gone for 9 days. I think I've covered all the bases, but with old age and senility setting in, I wanna run it by y'all first.

    So far, this is what it looks like...

    - Auto Feeder setup to feed once daily at 11am.
    - Tank sitter (Thank you DAZZ!) coming nightly to check equipment, feed frozen food/nori
    - UPS will run return pump for 20+ hours in event of power failure
    - Spare return pump available in case of main pump failure.
    - Aquacontroller will email tank sitter in alarm state
    - Skimmate waste container placed over sump in case of overflow
    - Water change done last week to minimize last minute changes
    - Skimmer will be cleaned today, set for dry-ish skimmate production
    - No changes done to tank for the last few weeks (just in case)

    Ofcoarse, things like auto top-off, lighting, etc, is automatic as it has always been...

    So what am I forgetting?
    I am Homer of BORG... Prepare to be..OOOO!! DONUT!!!!!!

    Heheh...
    actually, the Aquacontroller will email Dazz while I'm away.

    But I will have my laptop to check on some important emails while away, and ofcoarse to check the webcam every now and then...

    Double and triple check your timers.
    make sure that they are not getting caught up by a wire that stops them from turning...?


    Have Great VACATION!

    I'd throw a brand new Polyfilter or carbon in there.

    I'd suggest getting Carol to look after your tank, but, since you are away on a C***** she might do one of two things ....

    1) Steal all your coral and claim a crash took them out :confused-

    2) steal your whole darned setup, she's already up to 6 tanks, what is two more? :help:

    And you'd probably deserve it, you C****ing fool :rant:
