power is out

So our power is out. Has been for an hour and energy company says it will be out at least another 3 hours.

Is there anything I should be doing to my tanks?

It's summer?? Where are you located?
But if the temp is constant then you should be fine for 3 hours (:

Most fish and inverts color becomes brighter and more visible under bright light, and fades in the dark. That could've been what happened.

I have noticed that with fish however I can look in on my shrimp tank at any time of day and they are vibrant red. That night they went pale blue.
