+1 on temp swing. oxygen can be an issue depending on bioload. oxygen is pretty easy to fix (battery operated airstone etc), could probably get a switch that turns it on when the power goes out automatically.


heater is harder cause it pulls a fair amount of current. of course the way to truly fix it is with a real-deal generator setup, but that is $$$$


I'm planning to get a UPS (uninteruptable power supply) like people have on computers that will run my heater and return pump. together that current is a fraction of what most computers' power supplies are rated at, should last at least a few hours...
