Hi, Everyone.

Just curious if anyone has been in a situation where they need to refinish their hardwood floors in their house where they had a reef tank. Not doing this anytime soon, but I do in the future plan on re-doing my floor and was wondering if anyone was able to do this and mitigate any risk of it harming the tank.

depending on the finish water based or oil based would make a big difference.
to prevent any issues I would
add extra carbon day before,
turn off any air injector sources example skimmer, air pump etc
preform regular water change asap once you can walk to the floors.

thats what i did and i had no issues
