    Hi all,
    we have a scheduled power outage of 8 hours coming up.
    My whole house is electric.
    Ambient temperature is around 12-14degrees down here in Vic.
    I will be using a computer UPS to maintain some water circulation and filtration (should last for 8hours)

    Any Ideas how to keep the water warm during this time?
    I am thinking preheat the room, heating a smaller tank to a "higher temp" and doing a live stock transfer after few hours if my main tank temperature drops......short of a power generator any further ideas?
