So my power went out and my Betta Died yesterday. I put a little post with more details in the memorial pages.
Whats the best way to avoid damage from power outages. Unfortunately the way Sir Reginald passed kinda give me little knowledge about what went wrong environmentally other than I should remove any tubes that he could get stuck in if there is no active flow in them.
My Best guess is the heater would be the first thing to focus on, especially in times like this when the power outage was due to a snow storm and the tank dipped to below 70 within 24 hours. I'm pretty sure I've seen battery powered heaters before. Any experience with these as a temporary back up.
I guess the next option is either a Battery backup system or a generator.
I'm leaning towards the generator because I know a UPS that could last more that 24 hours is pricey. A generator is pricey too but as long as you can get gas or Fuel you can keep it going.
Any suggestions for a backup power system?
