Power out help!

My power is out, has been for about 2 hours now. It's 110 out and the house is slowly warming. I have a 125g reef tank and 55 seahorse tank. Any emergency tips?! Thanks!

Every once in a while, take your net and start swishing it around the top of the tank so there can be gas exchange.

How often? I've been scooping water put and pouring it back in every here and there so far.

It depends on how warm the water gets and the stocking. The warmer the water gets, the less oxygen it holds so it would be more often. What you're doing is good too.
