going by that i think you will be fine carey but as the water cools it may start to drop faster just keep an eye on it

you may have to heat it in some other way

Send a message via MSN to mr_X
i recommend a hobbiest(sp?) like yourself (or myself) that likes to have multiple tanks, purchase a generator.
meanwhile, you wouldn't happen to have a kerosene heater you could fire up, do you?

Oh man, I have often wondered about this! Summer is ok here but winter gets really bad and power goes out often!

Well power is back finally! Thank goodness. This was just a taste I'm sure. I'm gonna have to consider my options other than a generator which is def not feasible right now.

What about one of those battery back ups people use for computers? That might work for a short while

And that is my dilemma. I think I will pick up 2 battery air pumps though. At least i can still have oxygenation.
