I only have my pump connected to the UPS. Lights are not needed to keep fish alive and the water temp will not drop enough to kill the fish without heaters. My UPS can run my MagDrive pump for hours but connect my 800 watts of heaters and it drains in minutes, haven't tried the lighting it is another 440 watts. If I lose power for more than several hours, I fire up the generator....DC
