I need a battery backup for a 75 gal tank to last for 5-7 days

Any suggestions ? I have been losing power for long periods.

You need a generator. $300 for a 3000-3500 watt get up will do, or if you have a couple bucks look into a Honda 2000

I'm not really here... fell in the tank and my phone is just that smart
