This morning I woke up with two dozen little itchy red bumps on my forearms. And.. only on my forearms. Hrrrm. The same forearms that were immersed in the sump of my reef tank yesterday. It would appear that I got the shit stung out of me. Fun. The itching stopped not long after it started, thankfully.
Speaking of reeftank .. we have acquired an appropriate UPS capable of powering it, virtually free. All that's needed are two 115 amp-hour marine deep-cycle batteries, available at Wal-Mart for $56/each + core. We might have located two "cores" even ... this will be a very good thing. With that we should be able to output 10 amps for 3 hours @ 120 volts.
