    Hello,

    I have xenia coral, button polyps and frog spawn coral. The power is out and the water is 68 degrees. Will that kills any of my corals? The power is said to be back on soon...

    It might cause some problems, but if it is short term they should recover.

    I dont know if you have any way to get hot water but I'd try to put some bags of hot water in there if you can. May help.

    In emergencies I used to use an inverter that plugged into my truck. Ran an extension chord to my tank and powered all the necessities. After having to do that 2 times in one year, I just got a generator.

    If you have a gas grill that'll heat some water with a quickness, then just bag it up..
