If there is still water movement in the tank, it should be ok.

Is it a HOB? Is it still running but not moving water? If it is then it may just need to be primed by pouring a couple cups full of water in it. Happened to mine when I had a HOB filter. If that is even your problem. Just a thought.

The filter in the 12g is built in (nano) is not working, the bubble wand is tho. 1 fish with blue leg and emerald crabs are all that are in the 12g
The hob in the 54g is working, no livestick as of yet in this tank

Could have been fried or damaged from a power surge. I lose electronics from my common outages all the time. Everything in my house is on a surge protector.
