      Nick sorry to hear this my friend. I had this happen to me one time as well. I lost approx 500 pieces of Acros. So I can feel for you bro! Hang in there, you will get those pieces again, we are fellow zeoheads on here. When my pm grows up I will give you a piece to replace the one you lost my friend. I know that doesnt make up for all you lost, but hey 1 at a time is all it takes bro. Keep you head up, and try to find out what happened.

        Hey nick dont worry! When you start back up, start up slow. No need to rush. And once you find out what the problem was, make sure you take care of it next time.. do you know what it was?

          Same thing happened to me, I lost a fully stocked 75.

          Like people have said before, take your time and work slowly, don't rush to restock your tank like some people do, make sure this time you have the best equipment. Right all the wrongs you may have made this time around.

          Hell start by cleaning out the tank and taping it up, cook all your rock for 4-6 months while you save up money for new equipment or livestock.

              I'd like to know why it crashed too!!!! With you mentioning the pumps being off, was it some type of electrical issue?

                  So sorry to hear that for you Nick. What a bummer! I have also been there myself thanks to a sand bed in the refugium. I lost alot of very hard to replace pieces also. But you'll get them all back in time. I was very dishearted on the loss. But hung in there. Hope you find out what happened and can try to be sure it doesn't happen again.

                    sorry man
                    that sucks ,happened to me lost all my fish and sps 3 yrs ago when i was in vegas ,my power went out ,doesnt take long when you are stocked like i was lost about 15 grand worth of live stock ,i drove home from vegas in 2 hrs 45 mins where normally it would take me 4-4.5 hrs I managed to save all my lps .......... now i have 600 lbs of battery backup with a smartcard that will call meon my cell ph every 5 mins telling me power is out ,and it will run my 400 gal system for 24 straight hrs
                    u had to have had a outage of some sort ,i bet if you open up all your outlets one of them is coroded ,or a surge box is bad ,or one of your pumps is grounding out in your sump or your power went out , the easy way to tell is hook up a amp meter to your pumps that went off ,see if 1 of them is really high amps ,ive seen alot of rios do this .I went to smart home .com and i bought a cool meter you plug into the wall then you plug your device into it ,it will tell you everything ....very cool

                          That really sucks. incidents like these make us all aware how vulnerable most of our systems are to electrical outages etc etc.. Im worried now.
