Can someone please help me find where a 12 volt battery was used as a battery backup system for your aquarium?

I could have swore I was reading a post somewhere on here the other day about a battery backup. I could not find it searching the site so I went ahead and bought this 12-volt deep cycle battery and a inverter from Harbor Freight just in case we lose power during the storm. I figure the battery should power the pump and maybe the lights for hopefully a few days if needed. 4c3645f84ef47958420d2500f0c805e7.jpgb392e75f5bd095dc50db76a2a2a13cb7.jpg55e6e8819475cd5ff4b0ef5ac7d2996e.jpg

I think you are talking about my battery back up or even Big Dog's.  I use a car battery to power my Vortechs and a BatteryMINDER to keep it charged.  Works wonders and has been well tested/used.  Saved my tank during a 12 hour power outage this June.  Occurred the day after I left for a month!  Result was zero casualties, intact I don't think anything had the slitest problem.  If not for that my reef would have died, I'm certain.

its 100% automatic with enough juice to run my MP60 for 2+days!

That's awesome! I tested mine and it ran a power head for 3 days. With some solar panels and a second battery it could be endless!
