Re: [APD] Hurricane Help
Since press board/particle board turns to butter when
soaked, you might try draining the tank and moving it to a
firmer foundation temporarily or at least place some wood
studs under the horizontal supporting panel/frame.
I would think that you want to keep a a water flow in the
tanks as long as possible just to keep the water
Turn off the lights and blanket the tanks -- might as well
benefit from a black-out while you're at it.
If you think the filters might shut down for a prolonged
period and then restart after fouling, then disconnect them
from the system(s) now and ease up or stop feeding the fish
until you get back. I'd also do a large water change.
Good luck to all,
