Sorry to hear that...I would be very sad if I had to watch something happen to my little friend like that.

If this is a frequent occurrence you could get one of these:

That is a pretty high end one, you could get a much cheaper one that should be able to maintain the temp in your fish tank long enough. I use one for my computer (though I would let my fish borrow it if his life depended on it).

It can run my high end computer (around 500 watts), speakers, modem and portable phone for about 45 minutes when the power goes out, so it should be able to run a fishtank for a lot longer.

Do you have an approximate temperature for what it was in your house? I'm wondering if mine is at risk for something like that.
Being very poor college students (who would rather spend our money on fun things like betta fish and accessories than heat) we usually keep our heat at about 51 or 52 during the day and a little cooler at night. Needless to say, my betta's well-being is quite dependent on his heater (and mine on multiple layers of sweaters). I figured if something did happen to it, he would be able to live for at LEAST a few hours (though I'm sure he'd become very lethargic and quite stressed) but maybe I am misjudging their cold tolerance? How far down (in degrees) do you think your house got when the power went out?
