Ok, we had another power outtage here lasting all of 2 minutes. Of course the crummy fluval 305 I have stopped working and did not start back up. Priming didn't help. I had to take the filter, turn it upside down and dump half of it in the lawn, then come back and reconnect the hoses and let it flow! The inrush of water causes the impeller to get moving and halfway through I plug it in and it finally gets going.

So...75 gal tank (larger in the future)...any recommendations?

Homemade?

I want something that will start back up if i have a power outage so i don't have to worry about whether or not the thing is working.
