Hurricane Sandy...no more hot water for fish tank....now what??

Hi All,

Thank you for all the recommendations on how to keep my 2 betta tanks warm during a power outage. I've been doing partial water changes every few hours with hot water treated w/ prime. I've kept the tanks wrapped tightly with towels and fleeces.

Well....municapal water is now turned off, so I no longer have a water source. Most if NJ is a train wreck. What are my options??? Are those hand/feet warmers that they sell in sporting good stores okay to use in the tanks??

TIA....slowly losing hope of keeping these guys alive :(

George

I don't think you can use those hand warmers IN the tank, but you can probably put them against the side of the tank with a towel wrapped around it.

well. your best bet is to take the fish out, put them in a small bottle and heat them yourself.... body heat wise.
