Battery powered air pump would be the best choice.

The canister was on a fresh water which is 55 gallons with a Oscar and two silver dollars. The reef is a 46 gallon but the power is back. Was out for 2 hours so I think everything is ok. Only prob I see is that the anemone started to move far from his spot and moved near corals. He attached him self to my fuzzy mushroom rock. I used the hanging the rock upside down and putting in and out of the water trick to get him to let go and moved hi back to his old spot.
