Rep: tritus has started on the right path
Default emergency pumping

any one ever come across whatever could be used in emergencies when the power supply is cut off and the air pump stops?

Hello Dewy,
I am not sure what is available in England however in the US battery powered air pumps are usually easy to find. If what you are keeping does not have gills then a short power outage will most likely do no harm, although you may have to do some partial water changes if the outage is extensive. In terms of a potential power outage, I am worrying more about the AC going out during one of our eastern US summer heat waves, given that for the time being my animals will no longer be housed in a basement.
