If you live in the northeast!!!!
 
prepare yourself now for the possibility of an extended power outage. We are expecting 24-36 inches of snow between today and tomorrow.

Do a large water change tonight.

If you have generators start them up and make sure they run! Get enough gas to last you a few days.

If you don't have a generator get yourself some battery powered air pumps to oxygenate the water, very important!!

If you can't get a battery powered air pump agitate the water with a wooden spoon.


Float water bottles with hot water in them in the aquarium. Will help keep the temp. up

wrap blankets around your tanks, it will help keep the heat in.



good luck guys, and hopefully all of our fish make it through just fine:fish1:

It's 1 state away from being north east. It's close enough

I did my water change tonight because of this thread. Thanks for the reminder! Here's hoping for a beautiful winter scene with minimal impact. Good luck, everybody.
