So my latest question is are there any battery backups that are useful for freshwater tanks. I would need to plu in a 200 watt heater and 2 filters. I have seen lots of backups for marine powerheads and such but no advice for freshwater. I know it will take a while for the tank to lose heat so I'm nit as concerned about that, but i don't want to burn up a filter motor by having it kick off then on again without being primed. Any thoughts??

I haven't used anything like that but maybe somebody else has.

Most filters won't have trouble restarting, UNLESS the water level is low. That's been my experience. You can test yours to see....simply unplug it, and plug it back in again
