You're okay for several hours at least. What's your tank temperature compared to room temperature? If you're afraid of losing a lot of heat, wrap some blankets or whatever you have around the tank to insulate it.

Depends on size of tank and how many fish you have but I agree they will be fine for several hours.

What I did during a 21 hour outage is pour out water into a bucket and just pour back into the tank, rapidity, to oxygenate the tank some. 4 hours they should still be fine.
