As a condo owner a generators are out, I instead have uninterrupted power systems on my tanks (and fancy electronics). My 29G tank is connected to its own 1350 Va system I picked up at Costco for under $100. The unit claims I have 100 minutes of battery time. Which will handle the smaller blackouts that are more common. As for the 12 hour black outs (remember that one) I'll need to pickup a battery powered air pump. They have them a Kalihi Pets.
Another benefit to the UPS is that it keeps my light and CO2 timer from losing time durning short blackouts.
