    Sorry to hear this.

    You will prevail, it just take patience.

    Do not give up, I almost did.

    Hey Corailline,

    When lights go out did you notice the Dino's fade away ? But then during the day they're out more.

    I'm planning on turning the lights on by Sunday is that enough time ? Also what kind of photo period am I starting with ?

    Water Change ?
    Do I do it when lights come back or should I wait ?

    Four days complete blackout for me.
    I started the lighting back at 3 hours initially.
    No on water changes, that will only get you back to square one.

    Be very patient. Overkill has slight risks, underkill has huge risks. Go as slow as you can tolorate.
