Good luck. Hopefully the temperature will be okay.
that or a fish store battery air pump (which might be more expensive)
air pumps dont really pump air into the water but disrupt the surface tension to allow for gas exchange. this is something that a filter or air pump on the tank would normally do. having a check valve on airline tubing isnt a bad idea either.. if power fails on a pump sitting on the floor, you may get a flood from back-siphoning
