Question Will the fishes survive without filter all nights

If the tank had some clowns and some invertebrate such as anemone will they survive one night that without filter cause our area has no power tonight
Other than using battery powered pump,what other thing that's we can use as a pump/filter?

You need to keep the water oxygenated, so a battery operated air pump. I think they'd be okay with that.

But will they survive without oxygen for one night?

You can use a wooden spoon or something similar to agitate the surface of the water say every few hours and you should be fine.

The answer is maybe. Mine went a night without it... Would I tempt fate again? No.

Gamble. Or don't. Maybe hire a petsitter to stay up all night?

you can also purchase one of the battery operated air pumps... Some of the more expensive ones will even turn on automatically when you lose power.

Cheers,
