Having emergency equipment on hand can make all the difference when power outages occur or equipment fails. A battery powered air pump should be the top item on your list. This Weipro CP-901 runs off two AA batteries (not included) and can last for 14 hours. A 30mm air stone and 50cm of tubing is supplied with the pump. Make sure you have a supply of fresh batteries on hand.
When using this pump during an emergency without filtration, do not place the air stone at the bottom of the tank as this will stir up the detritus which can be harmful. Run the air stone in the upper strata on the aquarium for circulation and oxygenation until the filters are running again.
Battery powered air pumps can also be used when transporting fish to ensure the fish have plenty of oxygenation in the holding container
Need a battery air pump for emergencies or transporting your fish, the Weipro CP-901 is a great option.
