I think some things I've seen suggested is to scoop up and pour water back in for aeration. Not much you can do about lights but open curtains. Hows your house temp compared to the tank

Your fish should be fine for the 3 hours. They might be a little freaked out by the lights randomly going out at first, but they will be okay for that time.
