Recommended Posts

Ok it looks like Hurricane Isaac is comming for Louisiana. If what lights go for a few day will my fish die. I am going to do a huge water today, but what else do I need to do.

Do you have any battery powered air pumps? A back up generator?

There's an article on here somewhere, regarding what to do in a power outage. I'm sure someone will dig it up and post it for you. I couldn't find it again.

My folks are also nervous about Isaac, so I hear you. Be safe, and be smart.

Unless you have an overstocked tank, you should be fine. Even overstocked, if you have water ready for water changes you will still be fine. People kept goldfish for several centuries before they had electricity. You can get a battery powered air pump in the fishing section of Walmart.

I have had alot of Power Outages when I lived in CA cause of all the fires.... dont worry if you not over stocked, just remember one thing... Dont turn on the filters if they been off for more than 8 hours. Make sure you dump out the water in the filters before turning them back on. :)

Please be safe :)

Well I think my tele mess up her fins has blood on them and her eye has blood inside it. I think she ran into the drift wood I have in the tank

I'm sorry about your computer, but I'm glad your tank made it through mostly unharmed.

You guys got water?
