    Here is my tank plan for going out of town. I have always had a problem with my sump running dry - granted I don't have that ugly top off thing like Biff, but I do have a solution. I unhooked the U-tubes to the tank and let some water run into the tank and then I unplugged my sump and let it sit. I then took out a heater and put it directly into the tank to help keep the water a stable temp. Now, I don't have to worry about the water level at all for the next 5 days. My neighbor is coming by on Friday to put in food for both tanks. He cannot possibly screw it up. I will return to happy tanks!

    Have fun on vacation Doc.
    An ATO is a small investment,consider one sometime down the road.

    Yeah, I think it is worse leaving town while having a SW tank rather than a dog or a cat. Luckily I am good friends with the dude that owns the LFS and he takes care of my tank.

    the only problem with an ATO is running the plumbing from some far off bathroom to my tank. I am not handy. For now, no go.

    WOW people say i need a life! Between Freak, Doc and Biff not to mention Red has this forum hooked up to his phone 20hrs a day im looking pretty normal. Good Luck Doc. Not just in Vegas but with the tank. I have the worst luck when I leave town. Im acctually thinking bout staying home by myself (no masterbation comments needed) during thanksgiving just so things dont die again.

    NEVER now im doing it just to be stuborn and prove all of you wrong. Its not my fault my baby mama left the window open. It overheated the first time I left town. If my calaulations are correct
    x=tank over heat
    y=tank freeze

    x+y=0 or nuetral

    found a Wi-Fi station. Free Net Biff. Heading to Hollywood tomorrow. Hope to find free Internet there as well.

    Hawk, if you were more social, you would not need Rosey, you could find a real woman....like Alexander, I hear he cleans up real-nice! :bounce:
