If you have to choose it should be the filter. I had my power go out in the winter and lost a bunch of fish. after talking to the guys at blue zoo aquatics there guy in charge of there fish dept. told me it wasn't the cold but the lack of surface agitation that killed them he said if I would have stirred the water with a large spoon every hour or so they most likely would have survived.

I disnt read the thread but just stir the top of the water and all of it to get oxygen in the water. My power was out for over 12 hours and I stirred for 2 mins every half hour.

Can also take water from ur sump and and it to the tank so that it would overflow into the overflow box and back down into the sump. I call it a manual pump. Lol
