There is a pump that comes with its own rechargeable battery. I'm not sure offhandedly what its called but I can get a link to it tomorrow.

Minnow pumps. Those and battery backups for computers. I have plans to put together this and a car battery w/ inverter...but never got around to it. No 3 day power outage for me this summer!

You can probably DIY a flashlight that you spin the handle to generate power. Kipkay on YouTube did something similar (to charge his phone I believe)

Anything is better than sitting 6 hours stirring your tank with a big spoon.

I think a whisk would be more effective better agitation

I will have to look into this stuff. Such good ideas I'm glad I asked! I was hesitant to ask for the risk of sounding stupid.

There are no stupid questions..... just a lot of inquisitive idiots.

There are several types of posters. Some just want confirmation for stuff they have already done or are hell bent on doing. But most are folks like we all were, simply trying to figure this hobby out. Nobody knows it all...but there are a group of folks on this forum with excellent info I wish I had when starting out. Forums like AA are one of the best resources you could have to be successful. Even if we do argue some.

"Some" arguing? That's putting it lightly but its usually in good spirits. Although the occasional jerkbag does come along just to stir the pot.
