When is it suppose to arrive and when was the last time you had one? I have never been in one, but I know they had one up here a little more than ten years ago and it was really bad. We have some remnants of it in the area....pencil dead pine trees.
I was thinking the other day, that since we live north now with more chances of power outages, I better be prepared or I will panic for my fish. We will have lived here for six years this coming June and we have only had maybe a couple of short power outages, but I did not have fish then. I have heard though that there have been times in these areas from ice storms and/or t-storms, etc., there have been some very long power outages. We do have a generator, but we have never used it, and I don't know how strong it is and what it would be able to run. I need to ask my husband this.
I know they sell battery run air pumps which I think I will get in the near future. I hope that they would be strong enough to attach to the sponge filter.
What kind of blanket do you have for the tanks? Is there anything else I should have on hand in case of a power outage?
I am from San Diego, and when I had fish there as an adult, I remember a couple of power outs but they were not too long, so it did not hurt the tank. I did not have anything on hand though for a long power outage.
I hope your ice storm does not come about.
