hurricane watch

I am in central florida watching to see if and when this hurricane is gonna hit. I called my lfs and they are getting in some battery powered air pumps tommorrow. If, worse case senerio, my power is out 24hr's or more, is this going to be enough for everything to survive? I have corals too...and I am expecting a shipment from garf of some more frags on friday 8O . I don't have a generater. Any thoughts?

Hey Good luck for the Hurricane. There are two of them coming you know? I live in South Carolina and they are both heading up here and Florida will probably get hit tomrrow or friday by the one in the Gulf. My lfs has those battery powered air pumps too. They turn on after the power goes off and aren't that big. You might need to get a couple depending on how big your tank is. They look pretty good. I'm gonna get two probably tomorrow. They are a lot cheaper than a generator . Good luck.

I have a thing that plugs into the cigarette lighter on my car, it has a couple outlets so this way I can just run a long extension cord to my car if power is out for an extended period of time. I guess it would burn some gas but better than loosing my coral/fish 8O Then I can run pumps/heaters/etc... anything I need to run.

Yeah...thought that bonnie was still a T.S. It will have a huge impact none the less I'm sure. My sister lives in S.C. as well, around the greenville area. You getting ready for it?

Wal-mart sells them, I think it was around $30 or so?

Clyde (yes I know it's charlie, but it ought to be named clyde, so that's what I'm calling it), is the one that's going to kick our butts! Already a hurricane and is expected to skirt the west coast of FL.
