    Hey all,

    We have been given a list of power cuts for the Brakpan area. These are routine maintenance cuts and power is off from 6:00 to 18:00. How long can a tank stand without power and what backup devices do u guys recommend?

    Thanks

    If the ambiant temp is above 23 then just worry about air, actualy to be honest the temp is the least important of any if you dont have very sensitive species. I wouldn't worry much myself for that period of time, just use a battery airpump. Thing is for how many days will this go on ?
