I'm a newbie who got a 25 gal
Eclipse show combo for Christmas. As a computer guy who has an APC battery back-up, having something to keep my aquarium going during a power outage seems like a good idea. My first inclination is to get an APC battery back-up (I know most of the affordable ones aren't actual uninterruptible power supplies), but I know I need to get one that provides true sine-wave output because that's what AC
electric motors like. But could I afford one that could run the system for 28 hours? The Eclipse filter motor draws about 20 watts.
I mention that because then there's the Azoo Battery Backup Pump. It says it will run for 28 hours on battery power in a 50 seconds on, 50 seconds off mode. That sounds great. And especially since I was considering the possibility of toning down the turbulence from the outflow of my Eclipse filter in order to make it more angelfish friendly, I might need some oxygenation supplementation anyway. The drawbacks are: It may add more clutter to the clean design of my Eclipse setup. The pump may be noisy. Pluses could be: People think bubble curtains look cool.
Does anyone here have an Azoo Battery Backup Pump?
Does anyone here recommend a particular battery backup/UPS?
