    Talking Power Lost and St. Bernards

    0 Not allowed!
    Having a St. Bernard (long haired) when all power is out and temps are 96 - 104F and heat indexs are far higher can be an issue of life and death for the dog; due to lost of power, my house AC cannot run (its a heavy duty 220v outside central air unit.) The modest generator I have can run much of the house but cannot handle that monster so I had to go out and buy a small window mounted AC unit. I never dreamed I'd do this but it is critcal to cool my St. Bernard. I set it up in the bedroom and the dog hangs out there with my daughter to stay cool - needless to say, the Bernard will sleep in the room as well (hope she doen't snore all night ... .)

    So, a generator not only keeps my tank running for the fish (heater (like that is needed!), filters, air pumps) but also helps to maintain my St. bernard's well being.

    Knowledge is fun(damental)

    A 75 gal with eight Discus, fake plants, and a lot of wood also with sand substrate. Clean up crew is down to just two Sterba's Corys. Filters: continuous new water flow; canister w/UV, in-tank algae scrubber!! Finally, junked the nitrate removal unit from hell.
