(more than you know) i love this site, although i have issues once and a while, it is great to explain more than talk smack and run... any way thankx again!... it would be a difficult decision on what to do if put in a situation where you could lose your tanks....guess im glad i dont live in a apartment building!(most are glad im not their neighbor..lol) hope all is well for all tank bearing forum members. no hard feelings!.

Yup. No hard feelings. I would get a generator, but with moving and all the tanks I already have, no budget for it! I will have to do something else for power outages. And think of that something BEFORE the outage, hopefully.

I have a generator, but I can't run it if I'm in the hospital with my wife.
P.S. my son Austin was born at 11:44p.m. all is good. The fish are alive for now, I circulated the water as much as I could before leaving for the hospital again.

Heaters draw a lot of power, don't they?

I have a decent UPS for my computer (CyberPower 1500, if you wanted to know) but it will only power my computer for ~35 minutes in a blackout. That's just a computer and a monitor - no speakers, networking equipment, printers, etc.

I doubt it would buy you all that much time with a heater plugged in. I hope you figure out something, though!

car ac plug

I purchased a dc to ac adapter from walmart good enoughto run heater and a power head ..i got it at walmart for 30 dollars its max peak is 400 watts. God enough to run the extention cords and turn the car on for a period of time. Has worked for us when bad snow storms come and power is out for longer then a few hours
