I'm not sure I understand what you are asking here. Do about what?

If you decide to get another clown, be sure to get a smaller one. There will be a roll reversal on sexes but I've always been warned it's better to do it this way than to add a large female and hope they pair up.

Sorry about your loss also but I would not add any more fish till the tank is up and running for a while. You`ll probably have some parameter changes.

And to prevent this buy a ups if your area is know outages. There cheap on ebay and will keep a ph or a airpump or even a low watt pump going for awhile. Utah sometimes has bad outage but for a year I havnt had one.

Ungh..well now that sucks.. I'd be very frustrated with the power co, but I guess what can you do...

I've got a ups and some 'emergency supplies' like fishrfreinds recommends, fairly cheap and could be livessavers.

Question for the forum... I assume the problem here was more lack of aeration then anything else (potentially filtration depending on the setup?).. And no here comes the odd question... Can you manually aerate the water enough to help ease through a crisis like this?
Not that I'd want to be standing over my tank for an hour at a time with a whisk...but I'd do it in a heartbeat if it'd save lives..
