    I was in the middle of a water change when my power went out i did finsh it with a python. Power come on and 3 died mollys. My question is could it have been chlorine poisoning do to no circulation in the tank and are the others at risk? 6 hours with no power. Also is there anything i can do to help the rest of them? I did redose the dechlorinator but smaller dose

    Nothing much you can do for the other fish. Mollies need alot of O2. So what I do when the power goes off is I take a bicycle air pump and manually pump air into the tank every half hour.
