No they didn't, lol. I am glad that I have 2 portable welders both with 12000 kva gen's built in. Still have to have an electrician come and hook up a kill switch on my power pole and put a plug on it to hook them to though. Hope the power doesn't go out any time soon here.

4 hours isn't that long, make sure your water is well aerated before you go down and you should be fine unless you have an over populated tank.

If you're overly concerned run a battery powered air pump to be safe or keep you lights on until the power goes down which will delay CO2 production from algae.
