    We had a power outage today (which lasted maybe an hour or so -- my fish always act strange when the filters are off, but not really stressed), which got me thinking...

    1) How long does an outage have to last before fish start suffering?

    2) Do those of you with several tanks have a backup generator?

    3) If you do have access to a backup generator, how much does it have to run? Like maybe run it for 1 hour every couple of hours or so...

    Thanks in advance.
