No power for two days

Due to hurricane Irma I lost power for two days. All my shrimp survived. I used a battery operated fan to keep temp down. Water got pretty cloudy but not a single death. Next time I'll be prepared with a battery operated pump.

What do you guys do when power is lost?

Power was only out for about 15 hours here. I used two APC 1500 Back UPS and this: http://www.aquacave.com/non-stop-air-pump-with-battery-backup.html

 

I was thoroughly impressed by the Mr. Aqua Air Pump. Definitely worth the money in my opinion.

I currently use Canister Filters with a Quanvee Sponge Filter for intake. I took Qanvee Sponge Filter off Canister Filter during power outage, and ran just that on the side of the tank on intermittent.
