    30 Gallon Tank What Can I Do With The Aquarium After Use?

    For what its worth. If you have a safe place to store them in your garage if it was me I would just store them. I see 10-20 gallon tanks at yard sales for $5-$10 for complete setups.

    Help Ahhh Power Outage

    Eh i have gone 4 days in the middle of winter. House was 40. Tank slowly dropped to 55. Other then not feeding them I left it alone. Other then lethargic fish not much happened. I dont see shock being a thing as the tank will slowly cool then when the power comes back on will slowly warm up.

    Cycle Outside Of The Filter

    Its possible. If you have either some flow in the substrate or enough plants. I ran guppy breeding tanks with just a boat load of guppy grass.

    Question Types Of Testing Kits

    I agree the api kit is the best for the money. There are much better kits but your talking over $100 vs $20-$25. Its close enough as its a hobbyist grade kit. You can go absolutely nuts and go all digital but then your around $6,000.

    Storm Procedures?

    I guess if you only have a couple of fish ots possible but for a community tank its just not feasible to pull all tge fish. And really whats the difference if they are in cups or their tank. You arent going to do much with 60 cups of fish in a sever storm.

    29 Gallon Tank So Much Conflicting Information (angelfish/gourami & Tiger Barbs)

    You get conflicting stories since some people have luck with them and others don't. I had a dozen in my 55 gallon and i moved them around but they were a menace. I ended up putting them in a 29 gallon by themselves till I gave them away.
