    Sorry to hear... Hope you get back on your feet quick. Was the power strip connected to a GFCI outlet ?

    Following up...hope everything is as OK as possible. Per your warning, I finally got around to cleaning up the spaghetti salad that was my wiring for my 55. Thanks again and sorry for your loss.

    FWIW, if anyone is looking to eliminate the cord mess with probably not enough adequate drip-loops, like I had, I picked this up at home depot today. Its layout is nice for up to 4 larger transformer-type plugs, and 6 regular plugs. $35 at Home depot, and I have my two lights, two wavemakers, 2 100w heaters, skimmer, return pump, UV and MJ setup all plugged in. It's steel housing, commercial grade, easy to mount to back of stand, board, etc.. I hooked it up to a GFCI outlet, and it has status lights that indicate grounding, etc. Built-in surge protection too I think. Mostly, I liked that it had a layout that worked for 6 regular plugs for most of my stuff, and 4 wide-spaced for the transformer plugs for lights and jebao wavemakers.

    Finally, added up all my amperage for the tank to see how much I was drawing on a 15a circuit. I came up with at peak, 8.25 amp. Good to know for the whole circuit. Link for something very similar to what I bought is below. The one I got in-store was all steel.
