    I believe there will still be backup power. So there might still be electricity. Nevertheless like said, air pump should do

    Alternatively u can try calling your town council to ask them to supply generator during these 5 hours.. tell them that you have a marine tank with fish, etc

    Thank you very much for your advice. They will be extending an electrical wire directly to my unit!

    Hi.They extend an extension chord or supply a temporary wire seperately so your whole unit has power?

    For mine they extended a wire to provide power only for the tank.. not whole unit. So just hook up a power bar to their extension & you can power your tank during the outage
