I lost 2 blue gudgeon fish in their cave when we lost power for about 12 hours. I went to the store and got 2 battery bubblers. I am guessing that since it was dark they were in their den and did not get enough oxygen. I concider my losses minimal compaired to the people in the eastern states. I will have to try and see if the lfs where I ordered them from can get anymore.

My plan to use my inverter went out the window fast. I usually use me jumpstart box but it decided not to charge the night before. I had to tear it apart and fix a loose wire. I tried to hook it up to my truck battery and it died in 10 minutes so I had to get a new truck battery. I am now starting to research a small generator. The small ones are 2 cycle and around $125 and the 4 cycle are around $250. I would love one of those suitcase generators but you need a small loan.
