2 days ago I had a power outage for about 3-4 hours. Afterwards I did as i should and rinsed the filter media with aquarium water etc. Unfortunately I was not home to see how it had effected the O. What I have noticed to day during his water change is that the thermometer and heater have been moved and/or attacked. He has never done this before and I was wondering whether this was caused by stress?.

I'd love to know what I can do without a generator in order to prevent problems like this. I'm aware of battery operated airstones.
Is there such a thing that could automatically turn on during a power outage that could connect to my power bar and keep the tank running? I saw a clip of something like this on YouTube and if you skip to 3:25 on the video you will see a battery-like box with a lightning symbol on it. I wasn't listening to the sound but was wondering if this does what I was asking for. Here's the video link:

I will gladly take anymore of your advice on what to do. Thanks!

Of course this is possible. You need something named inverter an UPS = uninterruptible power supply connector and of course your alternative energy source like a big powerbank, windmill or Solar pannel.

Can be tricky in some Situations. For example in many EU countrys a fully of grid Installation is not allowed and i am not sure if you need permision of your Land lord to install something like this if you live in a rented house or Apartment, because of insurance reasons.
We need to stop talking about the people as if they were the crown of creation.
