    So i have setup up my 75 gallon tank and it is in the middle of its cycle now. anyway to my point. I was at work today and the power went out but all of our computers are hooked up to a battery back up so they all stayed on the whole outage that lasted almost 30 mins. I was not to worried about the aquarium because it doesn't have anything in it. i was wondering if anymore has one of these setup in there system in case of a power outage. I was looking at getting one similar to the one below. Any thoughts or concerns.

    They are called UPS devices 'Uninteruptable power supplies' . These are great, and if you want to be able to clean up your electricity going to the tank and also keep the tank running after a blackout this is the way to go. I will probably have one on my next tank.

    Many people use them for powerheads and heaters. Temperature and water movement are your two main concerns in a power outage.
