Around 2 days, just try to create any water movement like air pressure in a tube from another higher bucket, dropping or creating a water current from the tube to the tank.
Pet stores always have a battery for out rage moments, costs around 10-20 bucks a simple one.

A long time. But need to break up the water on the surface for oxygenation.


Use this simple battery air pump.

This air pump is actually the one I use when I go fishing with live bait and we use this exaclty one, sometimes in a bucket with hundreds of sea shrimps, its noisy but do the work perfectly and its really simple and super good.
Nice pick man.
