Don't worry, my electric is working, but for future possibilities I wanted to ask everyone what is the best thing to do if your electric goes out and you are worried about your aquarium temperatures dropping rapidly.
I would think wrapping tanks in towels would help with insulation, but that wouldn't last very long.
I would suggest having a battery operated outlet adaptor by the fish stuff (make sure not to get it wet, though!) I'm not sure if that is what they are called....you know, the little boxes with the outlets on them that are battery operated? I'm sure I just made a fool out of myself with that explanation... oh well!
+1! It is great that you thought of this. This could really help someone in the future!
Thanks to both of you :) I know I had to do that once... it kept the heat in very well. It does drop by very slowly so it doesnt harm the babies... I have a few extras on hand of different sizes to cover my various sized tanks that are scattered around the house XD
If you live in a cold climate it is a good chance that your electricity may go out for over 24 hours because of a bad storm. If it happens once you will wish you had a generator and not just for the fish. They will start at a few hundred dollars. Some of the battery packs don't last for that long. I will look into some.
