Exclamation Aquariums and Earthquake Awareness

Hey guys,

just thought i would create a thread to get people aware about the dangers of natural disasters and fish tanks. I personally keep a plastic 1-2 gallon bowl in my cabinet just in case their is a severe earthquake or disaster in which i need to leave or evacuate the house. Of course though, if the earthquake is severe enough where i cannot reach the bowl or water because of debri, that would be a problem.

Here are some discussions about this topic:

I would appreciate any comments (positive please) or any other websites or suggestions!



Thanks so for viewing and posting!

I have a five gallon acrylic bowfront tank under my bed. It doesn't have a hood, so I would probably on fill two gallons or so since you have to be moving with it.

Next to my goldfish tank, I have a small plastic container. Inside I have TetraBetta, a small ziploc bag of gravel, guessing 2lbs or so, about four feet of airline tubing, dechlorinator, active carbon, a fake plant, a sponge filter, and also a battery powered air pump another user mentioned above.

Air pump: http://www.amazon.com/Hagen-11134-Ma...8343947&sr=1-1

Edit: Also have a 150W heater in the box.

Earthquakes usually aren't a concern in Pennsylvania. I'm 13, and I've only been in one in my life. Weird enough, last summer, a hurricane, earthquake, and tornado all occurred within two weeks... we did have power outages for a bit though.

This is a great thread. I need to start being prepared for power outages - I live in Cape Cod, MA, so we're on the ocean and we stick out. Hurricanes usually slam us. We apparently get tornadoes in MA as well now |D

I'm think I'll grab a 2.5 or 3 gallon off of Craigslist and put in permanent dividers with a space for each fish. That way, they won't be thrown in together in such a small area and kill each other D: - this would be for any sort of disaster that requires evacuation.

Do they make battery powered heaters?
