With the coming hurricane Dorian, I am curious as to how I keep my BB alive. I have a 10 gal, with 3 kuhlis, a runt Molly, and 2 ottos. My tank has run amazing for a long time. I have a hob with bio rings, sponge and carbon with filter floss. Please help with any opinions or questions! I’m attached to my fish and don’t want to lose them. Here’s my plan for the days of outage. 3 days before impact, today, I will change water as normal. I will rinse media well in old water and replace in hob. 1 day prior, I will change again and leave media alone. Power outage> I will install battery operated air pump. Then remove all media from hob and clip it to the wall of the aquarium. I will place the air stone directly below it to create flow. (My question, will this help? Or spread bad things like ammonia around the tank, mind you I will rinse the media today.) I also plan on trying to create light in the tank somehow because my ottos need algae and idk how else to save that and my plants. What do you guys think, and how do I keep algae/plants alive!?
