Re: I used an "Inverter"

During the power failure, (Cleveland, OH, Hey I think we even caused it! Another claim to fame for the "Mistake on the Lake".) I removed the 12V battery from the car and borrowed a 400 watt power inverter from the neighbor to run my Whisper 800 (8 watt draw) which aerates the 2 tanks. UGF on the main tank and 2 "Foamies" on the Q tank. I ran the Tetra Power filter for about 5 mins every couple hours. Probly could have run it continuously also, but I wasn't sure how long the power would be out. These inverters are cheap, around $20 at K-mart or Best-Buy, etc. I think it's the way to go if anyone's thinking of getting back-up power. A "Marine" Batt.(built for max discharge/recharge) and an Inverter would be around
