tank sitting


New member
When you go out of town, who takes care of your tank for you? We are leaving for a week at the end of may, and nobody in our family knows how to maintanence or tank care of a salt water tank. We would probably come back to a dead tank if we cant find anybody, so what do you guys do?

We tank sit for each other. I have a couple reefers near me that know my system and stop by a couple times while I'm out. Fish can be fed on a lighter schedule during that time. I also tank sit for them.

With three dogs and 3 SW tanks, We put my mother-in-law in charge. I bagged up individual days worth of food, and showed her all about the ATO systems and how to restart after an outage and all was good when we got back after a week
