On the east coast we're about to be hit by Hurricane Sandy. I have a feeling I'll pack up my 3 fishies in their store cups in a cooler with one of those hand warmer things and head to my parents' house where they have a generator.
But my question is about my 5 gallon cycled tank. If the power goes out, will I lose my cycle? What if I put the filter cartridge inside the tank so it stays wet? Will that preserve my cycle? Thanks!
