Thinking about getting a saltwater tank...
I've always wanted a salt water aquarium, but I never got one because I don't live near any fish stores that sell corals or saltwater fish, plus the obvious cost to start one. One of my biggest concerns is that I live in Louisiana, we have extremely hot summers & we get hurricanes every few years. When the power goes out, we are usually out for a week. I have a generator, but there's not enough plugs to plug in a fish tank. I have a freshwater aquarium (with fake plants) & when the power goes out I run a battery operated air pump, but that's it, & all of my fish are fine. My question is...
How delicate are saltwater tanks/fish/corals? Could they survive a week without electricity?
