Help, my power just went out!!!

I guess a transformer blew or something.

How long can my reef tank go? I only have 4 small fish in my 50 gallon and the temp doesn't seem to be falling fast. It's been 4 hours though so now I'm getting nervous.

Wrap the tank in towels! Keep it warm, and try and get a battery operated bubbler in there asap

Yep, a battery operated air pump will work just fine. Even if your power returns soon i would still urge you to get one for the future,

I have a mix of many different saltwater fish amongst my tanks, but I love my Tangs most of all.
