1 tank has to live this hurts so bad knowing that possible when i wake up tomorwow i will have no oscar or guppie :( ah the joy of having 2 tanks 1 non agressive and other agressive like pitbul :confused:

How cold is your house? I'd think so long as keeping it at least 70 your guppies should be ok for a day and get a heater tomorrow.
my house is normal 15 degres c :icon_neut no house heat only day warm up house

edit frienednd my hous will cool down more at night right now is miday

The small tank will lose heat faster. Wrap it in a thick towel overnight.
The light, filter or other pumps will add some heat, too.
Guppies are pretty durable.

The larger tank will hold its heat a lot longer, so if you really had to you could put the big heater in the small tank, but I would monitor it carefully. That big a heater will warm the 5 gallon tank very quickly.
