    • Invest on some water leak detector, it save my a** a couple of times.
    • Invest on Wet Dry Vac or lots or towels.
    • Invest on a Generator, just in case. Saved my tank three weeks ago when we had a 8 hours black out.
      Have a back up pumps or equipments.
      Fresh water, salt water ready. I case you need immediate water change or top off.

    Insure regular cleaning of pumps (vinegar bath)

    Keep poly pads handy

    Keep a list of emergency contact by your tank in case you are not immediately reachable

    Have some sort of non-electricity using backup pump or have one on a battery backup or generator available.

    - Be careful of items that could fall or get knocked into your tank
    - Make sure UV shields are in place and/or intact. Glass panel for DE, and outer glass bulb for SE.

    Damn if I didn't have this happen 2 weeks after I got my tank set up. I had a brand new Blackberry Bold go for a swim in my tank. That was fun explaining to my IT people.

    Forgot to add always have lots of carbon around and available too.

    Don't worry Bryan. It doesn't matter what you told the IT guys.

    All IT guys assume wet Blackberry's are caused by emailing from the bathroom. :D

    Only live in high density reefing zones. 3 reefers per island should be considered a bare minimum.

    - Know your smells! Know what an electrical burning smell is, know what a moldy/humid smell is, know how to tell the difference between a skunk that wandered into your house and something bad with your tank....
