If you're going to the extent of getting the fish out and getting an inverter, why not just put the fish in a 5g bucket and tank the whole tank with you? 14g doesn't weigh that much. Just don't get in an accident. That would be bad.

LOL You know you are an aquarium junky when you are worried about someone getting into an accident not because they might get hurt, but because it might disturb the tank.

Good stuff.

Well everything has gone well so far until today. I had a mini tank set up, had no mini cycle, temp was all in check. I wake up this morning and the temp was 90! I have no clue how this happened but it usually stays at 78 all the time. How can I lower this fast, yet in a way not to hurt the fish?

To lower the temp gradually, get a small desk fan and point it at the water on top. You can also float a couple sandwich bags of ice to get the temp down faster if your fish are showing signs of stress.
