    We just lost power here at work for over two hours. Made me think, how has anyone dealt with power loss at home with their tanks? I helped a neighbor out with a 100 ft power cord snaked through my window when they lost power (they were raising cichlids). What a great sound, hearing the airstones and filters running again :p

    There are about a bazillion and a half threads here about how to handle loss of electricity with tanks. You should search for them, they make for very interesting reading when you see how creative our members are. ;)

    I have a couple battery powered air pumps I plan to use if there is a power outage for a extended period of time. I have also heard of people running extension cords out to their cars to run filters and pumps.

    There was an article last night on how the sun put out an unusually large soolar flare that would could possibly disrupt electronics. I thinks its just a concidence tho. I have a generator for my house. And I bought one for my fish...
