I'm there with you man. I'm praying we don't have huge power outages in NH. Not sure how this is going to go. I'm installing a generator just in case tomorrow. I've been biting my nails with all these fish at stake. Tank looks great though. I like that tall stack look.

Thanks. Power is out at my place. I have the tanks wrapped in towels and blankets to insulate them and keep the temps up, but they have lowered to about 73 degrees. I have been so busy preparing everything else that sadly the fish came last. I need to see if I can find battery powered air pumps for my 29FW and QT tank. It may be two days before I get power. Im not sure if the fish will make it.

How did you make out?

Welp, spent all that money for the generator just in case so I could run it intermittently and keep them alive and power only flickered once. 73 is low but they will prob make it if you don't lose too much more heat. You could float some hot packs in there in a zip lock bag to help with the temp. Do you have a gas stove? If so you could heat up water from your tank to like 85 ish and mix it in slowly also. Hope your power comes back on soon. That's rough man.

Well I'm borrowing a 900 watt heater. So I can get the temps up for some time. Question is. I can't have it run overnight or tomorrow when I'm out. So should I even raise the temps just to have them lower again in a few hours?

I wouldn't let get any lower. Keeping them up a bit will help dramatically, than lettig it dip more. If yiur borrowing a heater why can't you let it run? Everyone of them that I know of has an internal temp shut off. ?? Or did I miss something again?

Yeah man I would get that temp up if I could. Maybe raise it really slowly but it would be better to raise it and let it go back down again than get too low. I would think that would nee much worse than temp fluctuations from 78 back down to 73

Woo! Power and Internet back on. Luckily towels do the trick as the covered tanks never got under 72 while the RSM was 65. The clowns looked horrible this morning, I believe due to low oxygen in the water, but they look good now and are eating.

What a relief. Ill give it a few days to make sure power stays on then ill start the seed with LR
