Have you actually had to run your generator? Any problems with filters, air pumps or other aquarium-related equipment? Thanks for your response.
Yup , for 9 days after Sandy . No problems with fish related equipment for the simple reason that it wasn't running . If you need to set up a back up power installation that you might need to run off for any amount of time , one needs to set up priorities . What's important and what's not . Stuff like heat , well if you've got one , refrigerator , kitchen outlet so you have the microwave ,maybe 1 or 2 lighting circuits . Fish move to the bottom real fast . Just as an aside , I ran an extension cord over to the fish room lights after around 4 days . Dropped in some flakes , kept the lights on for a few hours , then cut the power to the fish room . No Losses over the whole period .
