Storm preparation

If we lose power from the storm heading up the east coast how can I keep my tanks warm?

All I can think of right now is wrapping towels around your tanks. Maybe someone will come along with a better idea.

Dramaqueen is right on. That's the easiest thing to do, just secure the towel/blanket with tape and that'll keep the warmth in.

You can also try to find battery operated heaters.

Before Hurricane Sandy strikes your area, I would do a water to change.

I hope you'll be okay. Stay stafe.

Also, hand warmers or heat packs used to ship fish will help.

I was just recently contemplating this, and yes, I need those heat packs..put em all in the tub, in individual tupperware containers, and put in heat packs..I had to shut mine all down in case of a surge, which was scarier than them being cold..
