hello everyone. I just found out that my city will be having a planned power outage this friday that could last a maximum of 6 hours. I have one 10G tank and a 20G tank and was wondering if my fish could survive for 6 hours with no bubblers or filtration.Thanks.

in the 10G I have 3 dwarf puffers and 2 otocinclus. The 20G is stocked with 2 gold barbs, 5 neon tetras, 1 bolivian ram, and 2 ghost catfish.

personally what i would do is get a cheap battery powered aerator and a sponge filter for each tank, that is just me but at the same time when you ship a fish it lives in a bag for 24hrs so its up to you what to do

Ensure to do a water change prior to since you know this is going to be a planned outage. This will get you better water quality going into the outage. You're not stocked very heavily so it shouldn't be that big an issue. However, as mentioned, if you want a sense of security, check your LFS for battery operated pumps.
