What’s the water temp and room temp? Water temps don’t usually drop quickly, so you do have some time.

Hope turtle was ok! I heard wrapping up the tank in space blankets and thick insulation would help. Also removing wrapping in a towel and holding it close to your body heat. Mine is fairly friendly. She's uneasy about being handled but will tolerate it. Not an expert but I'm trying to learn!

Thank you both! Power came back on after 36 hours and my little green babies are fine.
