seconding the bit about avoiding cheap heaters.

There are just way too many horror stories about failed heaters.

Plus, if you have a decent sized tank, it's going to take a while to cool off significantly - water holds a _lot_ of heat.

Barring regional disasters, I'd say it would be rare to be without power for more then a few hours or so, and I think most tanks would be virtually unaffected (or at least not harmed) in that amount of time.

If it's a serious concern, your money would probably be better spent on some sort of power-back up like they use for computers and such (UPS - uninterruptible power supply)
