Major drama last night!
I got home and noticed that the clowns were behaving strangely.. sort of dancing / quivering in the corner of the tank. At first I wondered if they were spawning.
Something made me check my temperature controller, and it was just flashing.. and it was wet! Fried inside no doubt.
I put a glass thermometer in (and immediately noticed that the water felt... warm!). It read 32 degrees. !!!
So off with the heater, and in with all the ice packs we had. 4 hours later the temp had only come down to 30.. This morning it was down to 26. I have another heater in there, with just manual temperature control. I have ordered an STC1000, but it's an anxious wait.
I hope no permanent damage has been done. Everyone seems alive.
In the midst of all this last night, my RBTA (which I noticed had split at the weekend while doing some maintenance) decided that part of it wanted to move... So it seems I now have 3 anemones.. although only one wanted to move.
I got a rock from the sump and placed it in the corner of my tank, away from corals. I gently massaged the foot of the rogue anemone and when he came off the back wall I put him by the new rock. He attached quite quickly. However this morning he had travelled quite a way, back to the back wall. I've never seen anything like this before. I hope it settles without tramping over my zoas and and palys. And also that he goes somewhere I can easily remove him so I can move it on. I don't need 3!!
On the plus side my reactor seems to be working well, and my phos is coming down.
